and if all my pennies were made of gold
if everything I held could last forever, that I would hold
if everything I needed wasn’t broken
if everything I wanted wasn’t spoken for
if all my pennies were made of gold

was there something I forgot to add
to all these thousands of things that I possess
w/out you the dullness sets and things, well,
they do not shine
so its all for nothing
no nothing

and if all my tarnish rags, they weren’t rusted and old
said, said, said if all my pennies were made of gold
fabric and clocks
socks and the batteries
beads in the bird seed
pricing tags,
buttons, ties, and hats
if all my pennies, they were made of gold

was there something I forgot to add
to all these thousands of things that I possess
w/out you the dullness sets and things, well,
they do not shine
so its all for nothing
no nothing

I got lots of patterns
I got lots of ticky tacky tape
I got lots of games to play
I got lots of change to scrape
I got lots of the creepy dolls
and more

if they were, were made of gold
said, said, said,
said if all my pennies they were made of gold
made of gold, made of gold, made of gold

was there something I forgot to add
to all of these thousands, and thousands, and,
and thousands
without you the dullness sets and things, well,
they do not shine
so its all for nothing
nothing, well nothing
nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing
