Four Tops – If I Were A Carpenter lyrics
If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Now would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?

If I take on a tinkers trade
Would you still find me?
Oh, carryin' the pots I made
Followin' closer behind me

Save my love through loneliness
Save my love for sorrow
'Cause I have given you my onliness
Give me part of your tomorrow

If I worked my hands in wood
Would you still love me?
Now, answer me baby, "Yes I would
I'll place you high above me. "

If I were a miller
At a mill wheel grindin'
Now would you miss your color box
And your soft shoe shining?

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Now, would you marry me anyway?
I want you to have my baby

If I were a carpenter
And you were a lady
Now, would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?
