Now, if I was a bricklayer,
And if I was a ball player,
And if I were some jew'lry, baby;

If I were a jug of wine, Lord, my flavor would be old.
But it got to be twenty-four karat solid gold, oh.
If I were a gambler, you know I'd never lose,
Lord, I'd have to play the blues.
If I was a hacksaw, my blade would be razor sharp.
You can find the tallest building,

All right, keep goin'!
I'm the penthouse pauper;
I'm the penthouse pauper; baby,
I can be most anything,

Lord, look at my penthouse.
