I had a dollar I wanted to save
Safe in my pocket, I'll try to hold fast
Hey! It might be my last

I know what I've got folded safe in its spot
I earned a dollar, it's not here to share
I've got a dollar and that's all I've got

A million more is just a single grain
A grain of sand or just one drop of rain
A small amount might make the difference these days
A dollar and a dream is all I could raise

to all the questions I've ever asked myself
Man, what a dream, it sure felt great
Took to the streets 'cause I couldn't wait
To freely give wisdom and share what I know

I had a dream and that's all I had
A million here lay down in pain every night
A million there to stay alive and fight
I'm sure my numbers underestimate
A dollar and a dream, I swear it's not too late

I had a dollar I wanted to save
Keep in my pocket, I heald fast
A dollar bill that I would take to my grave
Deep in my pocket like it was my last

Look for the dollar, now it's not there
Even the pants are a different pair
I earned the dollar, I had to share
I had a dollar and that's all I had

A million more is just a star in the sky
Tip of the iceberg but we've all got to try
Our work's cut out and there's work to be done
A dollar and a dream is step number, step number one

    General CommentTry try try. Work hard and good things will happen. If you work hard and good things don't happen - try, try, try again. Follow your dreams.

    And do it with whatever you do or don't have. If you have nothing - turn it into something. If you only have a dollar - turn it into a million.

    There are a million people (my numbers underestimate) who go to sleep each night wondering why their lives aren't working out the way that they want. There are a million people who just live each day to survive.

    It is not too late for them to do what they want - as long as they follow their dreams and work hard to achieve their goals. You too.

    Try. Work hard, follow your dreams. Things change. Keep going.
