If I Were a Munster...

Some guy once impressed me by humming the theme from "The Munsters" and joining it seamlessly with "If I Were a Rich Man" from "Fiddler on the Roof." In idle moments, I try to repeat this amazing feat, but I can't figure out how the songs fit together.

This will be a hard question to answer, even if you know the answer, because how do you express it in words? (I can't read music.) But you can listen to an mp3 of "The Munsters" theme here
. And you can find the lyrics of "Rich Man" here
So I'm hoping someone can say something like end "The Munsters" 37 seconds into the mp3 and then start humming "Rich Man" starting with blah blah blah lyric.
I CAN come up with medleys using these two songs, but my splice always sounds sort of lame and forced. The guy who (years ago ... I lost track of him) originally hummed it to me did it totally seamlessly, as if the two tunes were meant to go together.
I know this is a trivial question, but I can't seem to get it out of my mind and I'm hoping an answer will allow me to move on and free up brain cells that I can use to cure cancer or something.
