Dollar Bill

I had a single dollar bill,

Breeze tried to blow around,
I put a
quarter on each corner,
Kept it laying down...

4-quarters make a dollar,
Is what I have to say,
4-quarters make a dollar,
Each and every day...
But wind it came,
And rushed, and howled,
And
dollar tried to fly,
I gotta put more coins on top,
Or
dollar says good-bye....
10 dimes,
Is what I put on top,
To pile on the pile,
My
dollar's really heavy now,
I sat on down and smiled...

10-dimes they make a dollar,
Is what I have to say,
10-dimes they make a dollar,
Each and every day...
But wind it came,
And rushed, and howled,
And
dollar tried to fly,
I gotta put more coins on top,
Or
dollar says good-bye....
20-nickels,
On my dollar,
All just fit on top,
Now
dollar was so heavy,

20-nickels make a dollar,
Is what I have to say,
20-nickels make a dollar,
Each and every day....
But wind it came,
And rushed, and howled,
And
dollar tried to fly,
I gotta put more coins on top,
Or
dollar says good-bye...
100 pennies make a dollar,

That's what I have to say,
100-pennies make a dollar,
Each and every day...
Lots of coins on my
dollar,
It'll be alright,
Dollar's here,
Right by my side,
Not flying like a kite!
