WOULDN'T IT BE FUN From : "Aladdin" - 1958 (Cole Porter) GEORGE HALL (AS THE EMPEROR) CHAMBERLAIN: Wouldn't it be fun not to be famous, Wouldn't it be fun not to be rich! Wouldn't it be pleasant To be a simple peasant And spend a happy day digging a ditch! Wouldn't it be fun not to be known as an important V.I.P., Wouldn't it be fun to be nearly anyone Except me, mighty me! Yesterday I had to endure a kite-flying match And rushed to an execution downtown, Then I gave a luncheon for some horrible hectic Huns Who proceeded to drink too much and fall down. After lunch I went to inspect a slave-labor camp And opened a new wing in my dungeon keep, Then I gave a feast for a lofty lama from Tibet And he stayed so late I never got to sleep, So help me Buddha! Wouldn't it be fun not to be wealthy, Wouldn't it be fun not to be great! How I'd love dearly To be a beggar merely And not be bored to death living in state! Wouldn't it be fun not to have always deadly diplomats for tea, Wouldn't it be fun to be nearly anyone Except me, mixed-up me!
