Capo IV

[Chorus]
A                                                                      A7
If I were a rich man, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum
Dm               Am              E           E7      E
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum if I were a wealthy man
  A                                                                            A7
I wouldn't have to work hard, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum
Dm          Am                E           E7          A
If I were a biddy biddy rich, idle-deedle-didle-didle man

[Verse 1]
            Dm                  G7                 C                          Am
I'd build a big tall house with rooms by the dozen right in the middle of the town
  Dm                 G7                   A     A7
A fine tin roof with real wooden floors below
               Dm                 G7                C                      Am
There would be one long staircase just going up and one even longer coming down
    Dm               D#dim            E
And one more leading nowhere just for show

[Verse 2]
            Dm                   G7                    C                             Am
I'd fill my yard with chicks and turkeys and geese and ducks for the town to see and hear
Dm                G7              A    A7
Squawking just as noisily as they can
               Dm                       G7                      C                          Am
And each loud "cheep" and "squawk" and "honk" and "quack" would land like a trumpet on the ear
   Dm               D#dim           E
As if to say: "here lives a wealthy man"

[Chorus]
A                                                                      A7
If I were a rich man, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum
Dm               Am              E           E7      E
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum if I were a wealthy man
  A                                                                            A7
I wouldn't have to work hard, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum
Dm          Am                E           E7          A
If I were a biddy biddy rich, idle-deedle-didle-didle man

 
[Verse 3]
         Dm              G7                        C                         Am
I see my wife, my Golde, looking like a rich man's wife with a proper double chin
Dm          G7                     A       A7
Supervising meals to her heart's delight
          Dm                  G7                        C                           Am
I see her putting on airs and strutting like a peacock, oh, what a happy mood she's in
Dm               D#dim            E
Screaming at the servants day and night


[Bridge]
E7         G       F                         C    Bb A
The most important men in town would come to fawn on me
Dm
They will ask me to advise them
       Bb
Like a Solomon the Wise
       Gm
If you please Reb Tevye
       Gm
Pardon me Reb Tevye
A7
Posing problems that would cross a rabbi's eyes
A7
Yah da-dee da da, yah di da da, yah di da da, daa


[Verse 4]
Dm                G7                    C                    A7
And it won't make one bit of difference if I answer right or wrong
Dm                    D#m              E
When you're rich they think you really know
     Dm                     G7                  C                        Am
If I were rich I'd have the time that I lack to sit in the synagogue and pray
    Dm           G7                  A      A7 
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall
           Dm            G7                     C                     A7
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men seven hours every day
Dm                D#dim             E
That would be the sweetest thing of all

[Chorus]
A                                                                      A7
If I were a rich man, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum
Dm               Am              E           E7      E
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum if I were a wealthy man
  A
I wouldn't have to work hard, ya ba dibbie dibbie, doobie dibbie dibbie dibbie dum

[Outro]
Dm                Am
Lord who made the lion and the lamb
Dm            Am
You decreed I should be what I am
Dm                  Am
Would it spoil some vast eternal plan
Dm          E       A     E A
If I were a wealthy man
