Bobby Darin

If I Were a Carpenter

 


 

 

       If I were a carpenter

       And you were a lady

       Would you marry me anyway

       And have my baby?

 

       If a tinker were my trade

       Would you still find me

       Carryin’ the pots I made

       Followin’ behind me?

 

      Save my love through loneliness

      Save my love through sorrows

      I've given you my onliness

      Give me your tomorrows.

 

      If I worked my hands in wood

      Would you still love me?

      Answer me, babe, “Yes, I would.

      I would put you above me.”

 

      If I were a miller … yeah … 

      At a mill wheel grindin’

      Would you miss your colored blouse

      Little girl, your soft shoe shinin’? 

 

      If I were a carpenter

      And you were a lady

      Would you marry me anyway

      And you have my baby?

 

      Would you marry me anyway

      And have my baby?
