Lyrics

If I were a rich man
With a million or two
I'd live in a penthouse
In a room, with a view

And if I were handsome
(No way)
It could happen
Those dreams do come true
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have you

Wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
Wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
Wouldn't have nothin'

Can I tell you something?
For years I have envied
(You green with it)
Your grace and your charm
Everyone loves you, you know?
(Yes I know, I know, I know)

I must admit it, big guy
You always come through
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have you

You and me together
That's how it
Always should be
One without the other
Don't mean nothing to me
Nothing to me
Ya

I wouldn't be nothin'
(Aw now)
If I didn't have you
To serve

I'm just
A punky little eyeball
And a funky optic nerve
Hey, I never told you this

Sometimes
I get a little blue
(Looks good on you)
But I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have you

Let's dance (haha)
Look, Ma, I'm dancin'
Would you let me lead?

Look at
That's it two big guys
Who are light on their feet

Don't you dare dip me
Don't you dare dip me
Don't you dare dip me
Ow, I should have stretched

Yes, I wouldn't be nothin'
If I didn't have you
(I know what you mean, Sulley, because)

I wouldn't know
Where to go
(Me too because I)
Or know, what to do
(Why do you keep singin' my part?)
I don't have to say it
(Aw, say it anyway)
Cause we both know
It's true

I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
Wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
Youuuuu

One more time, big one

Don't have to say it
Where'd everybody come from?
Oh, we both know it's true
Let's take it home, big guy

I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have
I wouldn't have nothin'
If I didn't have

You, you, you
A-E-I-O
That means you
Ya
