If I had my druthers I'd go fishin'
Find myself a lake and a lazy day
If I had my druthers I'd quit wishin'
Get off the old caboose get on my way
Give me, whole lots of laughter
Great big barrels of fun
Nighttime full of romance
Daytime full of fun
If I had my druthers I'd go flyin' -ooh
Lookin' for the things I'd like to see - yeh
If I had my druthers I'd be tryin' tryin'
The only way to be what I can't be
Give me somebody to love me
Make me feel like the only one
Something that's worth doing more
I feel good when it's worked yeh yeh
If I had my druthers I'd go sailing - yes I would
Catch me campin' ou on the open sea
If I had my druthers I'd be singin'
Just how good this good life feels to me - feels so good
It just needs someone to talk to
Something you can't share
You don't need no reason for livin' long
It's already there - yes it is - ooh ooh
It makes me giggle
I can't sit down
