If I Were A. Carpenter

January 2006

If I were A. Carpenter and you were a writer.

Would you say nice things about me anyway?

Should I be politer?

If I were Alan Carpenter and you edited a paper.

Would you remember November twenty-two?

When I attacked you with a rapier.

Save my state through no ability.

Save my state through Chi – na.

We just want the revenue to come.

Mugs’ll think it can’t be finer.

If I were a Carpenter and wanted to be Premier.

Would I get there eas – ily?

Just like Morris Iemma.

If I were Alan Carpenter and you were McGinty.

Would you stand a – side for me?

Have I given enough hinties?

Save my state through no ability.

Save my state through Chi – na.

We just want the revenue to come.

Mugs’ll think it can’t be finer.

With apologies to Tim Hardin, If I were a Carpenter (1966)
