  • Song Lyrics:
    Oh, New York is changing.
    Wherever you look,
    Big tall buildings by Tishman
    Tishman, ahh...

    If I were a Tishman,
    Yum di diddle didle doody didle diddy didy di
    (Yum di didle)
    All day long I'd buildy buildy build,
    If I were a building man.

    I'd build a lot of buildings,
    Yum di didle doody deedle didle deedle didle dum
    (Yum di didle)
    Building buildings anywhere I wish,
    If I were a Tishy Tishy Tish.

    I'd build the 666 5th Avenue building
    Right in the middle of the town,
    One block wide and forty-eight stories high.
    And I'd have eighteen elevators going up
    And twenty-seven more going down,
    All of them express to pass you by.
    (Di diddle di)

    I'd build a ladies room and also a mens room,
    Right there on each and every floor,
    Each one in a style that is apropos.
    And like the restrooms in the best office buildings,
    You'd need a key to open up the door,
    Though who would steal a bathroom, I dunno!

    Oh, if I were a Tishman,
    Yum di diddle doidle didle dadle doodle deedle dum
    (Yum di didle)
    All day long I'd buildy buildy build,
    If I were a building man.

    I'd build a lot of buildings,
    Yum di doodle dadle didle deedle didle dodle dum
    (Yum di didle)
    I could realize my life's ambish,
    Raising rents whenever I would wish,
    Telling tenants, "You can call me pish."
    If I were a rich Tishman
