You only wanted what money could buy,any trinket that sparkled would catch your
Green eyes I should have known better,but i loved you too much,and when you
Spent all my savings,love was not enough.If i were a drinker i'd be drunk
Tonight,and if'n i were a gambler,i'd bet my last dime,you're out with
Another,and you won't be home,but if i were a rich man you would'nt be gone.We
Used to go dancin' on saturday night you shined like a diamond underneath those
Blue lights you were a fools gold oh but i would soon learn i'd never make you
Happy with the money i earned.If i were a drinker,i'd be drunk tonight,and if'n
I was a gambler,lord i'd bet my last dime you're out with another,and you won't
Be home,but if i were a rich man you would'nt be gone
