If I had my druthers, I'd druther have my druthers
Than anything else I know
While you'd druther hustle, accumulatin' muscle
I'd druther watch daisies grow

While they're growin' slow
And the summer breeze is blowin'
My heart is overflowin' and so
If I had my druthers, I'd druther have my druthers
Than anything else I know

Robert, you think you could agree
With that kind of a philosophy?
Agree? I live it

If I had my druthers, I'd druther have my druthers
Than work anywheres at all
Don't nobody call

Huh, it ain't that I hates it
Why, in fact, I even contemplates it
While watchin' raindrops fall
I sits there for hours developin' my powers
Of figurin' how flowers gets tall

If I had my druthers, I'd druther have my druthers
Than anything else at all
If I had my druthers to choose from all the others
I'd druther be like I am

I like you just the way you are
This thing called employment
Detracts from my enjoyment
And tightens my diaphragm

Oh, you poor lamb
Whilst I'm doin' nary
A thing that's necessary
I'm happy as a cherry stone clam
Some of my best friends are clams

If I had my druthers to choose from all the others
I'd druther be like I am
If we had our druthers, we'd rather have our druthers
Than anything else we know

Our forefathers wrote it and often times we quote it
Whenever we're feelin' low
Monsieur John?
As direct descendants we figure independence

Ain't only in Missouri and so if we had our druthers
We'd rather have our druthers than anything else we know
Why sho', huh
Than anything else we know

Yebo', than anything else we know
Enco', than anything else we know
Goodnight, leave a call
