If I Were a Rich Man lyrics – Fiddler on the Roof CastDear God, you made many, many poor people.I realize, of course, that its no shame to be poor.So, what would have been so terrible if I had a small fortune?Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.Ya ha deedle deedle, bubba bubba deedle deedle dum.Id build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen,A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below.There would be one long staircase just going up,Id fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks(Insert)Squawking just as noisily as they can. (End Insert)With each loud cheep swaqwk honk quackAs if to say Here lives a wealthy man.Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.Id see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich mans wifeSupervising meals to her hearts delight.I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock.The most important men in town would come to fawn on me!Posing problems that would cross a rabbis eyes!And it wont make one bit of difference if i answer right or wrong.When youre rich, they think you really know!If I were rich, Id have the time that I lackAnd Id discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.Yubby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dibby dum.
