Lyrics


Flipped a quarter in the downtown wishing well
Feeling pretty sorry for myself
I wanted that promotion for some time
In the water that quarter looked back at me
Started feeling just a bit guilty
Bout' all the more needed wishes than mine

Like all those fighting soldiers
And all the ones that'll never come back

CHORUS
I hope whenever things get me down
That I will never lose sight of how
To keep things in Perspective

So as I traveled on home I thought a lot
Of how I could help with what I've got
I looked for empty boxes to fill
To the pantry in town I took some food
Sent every little quarter to St Jude
And several items to Goodwill

Oh, all those starving children
And the kids that fight just to stay alive

I hope whenever things get me down
That I will never lose sight of how
To keep things in Perspective

To all of the needy
Oh, May the wishing wells find
Your lucky quarters long before mine

I hope whenever things get me down
That I will never lose sight of how
To keep things in Perspective
To keep things in Perspective
