I'd Rather Lead A Band Lyrics

 

I'd Rather Lead A Band Song Lyrics


I haven't ambitions for lofty positions
That wind up with the wealth of the land
I'll give you the throne that a king sat on
For just a small baton
Providing you included a band
If I could be the wealthy owner of a large industry
I would say, "Not for me"
I'd rather lead a band
If I could be a politician with a chance to dictate
I would say, "Let it wait"
I'd rather lead a band
My ev'ry care ceases
I'm rich as old Croesus
When I've got ten pieces
In hand
If I could have a millionairess with a whole flock of banks
I would just whisper "Thanks"
I'd rather lead a band
[2nd chorus:]
Give me a band, yes sir
And not a thing lesser
To be that professor
Is grand
If Josephine had left Napoleon and climbed in my lap
I'd say, "Go back to Nap"
I'd rather lead a band
[patter:]
A saxophone, a slide trombone
A bass fiddle and a drum
A guy at the piano who makes it hum
A violin, a clarinet
A hot trumpet and guitar
And me with the baton and there you are
