If I had my druthers I'd go fishing
Find myself a lake and a lazy day
If I had my druthers I'd quit wishing
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 flying
Looking for the things I'd like to see
If I had my druthers I'd be trying trying
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

If I had my druthers I'd go sailing - yes I would
Catch me camping out on the open sea
If I had my druthers I'd be singing
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 living long
It's already there - yes it is - ooh ooh

It makes me giggle
I can't sit down
