"If I Were the Godpigeon" is a song from the Goodfeathers segment "Pigeon on the Roof." It is a parody of "If I Were a Rich Man" from the musical Fiddler on the Roof.


If I were the Godpigeon
Cooee-cooee-cooee fettuccine cream sauce parmesan
All the time I'd [makes Godpigeon noises]
If I were the Godpigeon!
Bada bing!
Birds would kiss my toesies
Schmooie-schmooie-schmooie mostaccioli Vito Corleone
Lord, show then I wasn't born to lose
Make me boss of all them pidgie-poos
I'd make offers no one can refuse
If I were the Godpigeon, yeah!


  • The song references Vito Corleone, the epinonymous Godfeather on whom the Godpigeon is based. Another line references the famous line, "I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse."
  • Ironically, the Godpigeon and Pesto share a voice actor: Chick Vennera.
