Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
Robert, you think you could agree
With that kind of a philosophy?
Agree? I live it
Verse 4
If I had my druthers, I'd druther have my druthers
Than work anywheres at all
Don't nobody call
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
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
Verse 7
I like you just the way you are
This thing called employment
Detracts from my enjoyment
And tightens my diaphragm
Verse 8
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
Verse 9
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
Verse 10
Our forefathers wrote it and often times we quote it
Whenever we're feelin' low
Monsieur John?
As direct descendants we figure independence
Verse 11
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
Verse 12
Yebo', than anything else we know
Enco', than anything else we know
Goodnight, leave a call
