"THE PENNY"

Times have really changed -
Since I was a boy…

Finding a penny -
Was a source of joy…

The trip to the candy store -
Was a remarkable event…

Contemplating your choices -
'Til your money was spent…

It meant bubble gum -
Lollipops and hard candy too…

They all cost a penny -
Just to name a few…

Nowadays it's different -
What can a penny do…

The answer my friend -
Is all up to you…

Find that brown coin -
And bring it past your door…

Then each day you double -
The amount you had before…

And in thirty days -
You can live of life of bliss…

With one million dollars -
Finding joy is hard to miss…
