If I Had a Million Dollars

And now for something completely different… or at least a lot more fun.

How will you spend you next millions dollars?

Learning about how to be rich and increase your prosperity is fantastic, and we post a lot here on those topics. But sometimes just listening to the right song will get you in the mood to attract wealth as well.

Probably the most famous song by The Barenaked Ladies — fellows from Toronto, like myself, that I got to meet and interview several times — is “If I Had a Million Dollars” (or “If I Had $1,000,000”). And it gets played at millionaire mindset seminars and workshops around the world.

Here they play it live at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan in 2007.

Feel free to sing along for full effect…

If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a house, I would buy you a house

And if I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
I’d buy you furniture for your house, Maybe a nice Chesterfield or an ottoman

And if I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a K-Car, A nice Reliant automobile
And if I had a million dollars, I’d buy your love

If I had a million dollars, I’d build a tree-fort in our yard
If I had a million dollars you could help, It wouldn’t be that hard

If I had a million dollars, Maybe we could put a little tiny fridge
In there somewhere, We could just go up there and hang out

Like open the fridge and stuff
And there’d all be foods laid out for us
Like little pre-wrapped sausages and things

They have pre-wrapped sausages, But they don’t have pre-wrapped bacon
Well, can you blame them? Yeah!

If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a fur coat, But not a real fur coat, that’s cruel

And if I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you an exotic pet, Yep, like a llama or an emu

And if I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you John Merrick’s remains, All them crazy elephant bones
And if I had a million dollars I’d buy your love

If I had a million dollars, We wouldn’t have to walk to the store
If I had a million dollars, We’d take a limousine, ’cause it costs more

If I had a million dollars, We wouldn’t have to eat Kraft Dinner
But we would eat Kraft Dinner

Of course we would, we’d just eat more
And buy really expensive ketchups with it
That’s right, all the fanciest Dijon ketchups

If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a green dress, But not a real green dress, that’s cruel

And if I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you some art, A Picasso or a Garfunkel

If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
Well, I’d buy you a monkey, Haven’t you always wanted a monkey?
If I had a million dollars I’d buy your love

If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
If I had a million dollars, If I had a million dollars
If I had a million dollars, I’d be rich!
