Rocky & The Goldstein: “G-d Fearing Wife” – The Hevria Sessions

Many folks believe being in love will resolve life’s issues. I believe this song proves otherwise. In short, change will come from one’s willingness to change and love should only enhance it.

Lyrics by Isaac Schapira, music by Rocky Goldstein

If I had money to spend
I could make some new friends
I could find friends
who think just like me
We would drink every night
And we never would fight
We’d be happy like people should be

If I could just go back home
To the folks that I’ve known
They would tell me how proud they all are
If I could find what I lack
If I could only go back
I’d say sorry I rambled so far

If a G-d fearing wife
Would come into my life
We would move where the air is still clean
We would live off the land
For the rest of our span
It would be like some beautiful dream

If I could make a fresh start
In some other part
Of the country in which I was raised
I would put down new roots
And stand tall in my boots
And be happy the rest of my days
If I could be what I’m not
I’d rejoice in my lot
I’d give thanks every way I know how
I’d sing songs of delight
If I could just get it right
Instead of being the way I am now

If I hadn’t been so proud
things might be different
I could find someone who could help me in this jam
Well, I wrote my letter
and I guess I have to mail it
Instead of trying to be different than I am

I’d give all that I got
If I could take one more shot
for a chance to be happy at last
I would get my mind clear
and move on without fear
and walk out from the cage of the past

If a G-d fearing wife
Would come into my life
We would move where the air is still clean
We would live off the land
For the rest of our span
It would be like some beautiful dream
