Dollar Bill

The breeze tried to blow my dollar around

I had a single dollar bill,

Breeze tried to blow around,
I put a quarter on each corner,
Kept it on the ground!


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,
dollar with dimes and quarters on it
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,
dollar with nickels on it
Now dollar was so heavy,
The flying had to stop…
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,
dollar with nickels dimes pennies and quarters on it
Each and every day…
Lots of coins on my dollar,
It’ll be alright,
Dollar’s here by my side,
Not flying like a kite!
