From:
A Faire To Remember
& a live version on Brobdingnagian Fairy Tales

music by Steven Page & Ed Robertson, words by Andrew McKee, Marc Gunn & Nancy e. Pearsall

If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you a keep (I would buy you a keep)
If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you furniture for your keep (Like a Louis the XIV or an armoire)
If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you a big coach (with all the pretty with fringe on the top)
If I had a million ducats I'd buy your love.

If I had a million ducats (We wouldn't have to hunt for our game)
If I had a million ducats (We'd hunt for sport cuz it's not the same)
If I had a million ducats (We'd have peasants grow food all around the keep)
And we'd have a big garden. (A maze garden)
With high protein-enriched food (like lentils)
And bambi and thumper playing in it.

If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you a fur cloak But not a woolen cloaks. That's cruel
If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you an exotic pet (Like a dragon or a leviathan)
If I had a million ducats (if I had a million ducats)
I'd buy a saint's remains (And all those crazy lucky saint's bones)
If I had a million ducats I'd buy your love.

If I had a million ducats (We wouldn't have to walk to the faire)
If I had a million ducats (We'd hire a knight carry us there)
If I had a million ducats (We wouldn't have to get our feel all dirty)
We wouldn't have to walk in the filth.
(We'd have people throw cloaks on the ground like for Sir Walter Raleigh)
Or even better, peasants (on all fours)

If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd be you a bed (But not bed of nails. That's cruel)
If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you some art (a Michaelangelo or Donatello)
If I had a million ducats (If I had a million ducats)
I'd buy you a monkey (haven't you always wanted a monkey?)

If I had a million ducats, If I had a million ducats
If I had a million ducats, If I had a million ducats
We'd be kings.
