B 19 Pg 28

I wish I was a rich man

 

I wish I was a rich man

and not have to work another day.

I wish I could sit around all day relaxing,

while I collect my pay.

 

Id have ten thousand people under me,

all obediently carrying out my will.

I wish I was a rich man

the one that collects the bills.

 

O I wish, I wish I was thrifty stinking rich,

beyond my wildest dreams.

But alas; I am unemployed man,

in reality it seem.

 

But one day! Yes one day Im ganna make it,

and then Ill be on top of the pile.

But for now I must try so very hard to be content with my lot,

and live in pauper stile.
