I heard that thoughts cost just a penny, so I tried to sell mine but I didn’t have any.

I heard that some nickels are wood, like a tree. So I chopped up a log, now I’m rich as can be.

I heard that a quarter won’t stretch very far. I found out it was true and I still have the scar.

I find money matters to be very strange. But I’ll learn, ’cause I don’t want to be scared of change.
