Susan Salidor © 1998
You know my grandma, gave me three dollars
To spend on anything I wanna
Like toys or candy or some crayons
And do you know where I went?
Can you guess how much I spent?
. . . at the toy store? No!
At the resale shop
Where we shop ?til we drop
Where a buck buys a lot
At the resale shop!
Oh yeah my father, gave me two dollars
Because I washed the car and waxed it
Well ?waxed it? really means I rubbed it
And do you know where I went?
Can you guess how much I spent?
. . . at the candy store? No!
. . . at the toy store? No!
Somebody else?s junk becomes my treasure
Somebody else?s headache is my pleasure
You never know how much a quarter can stretch
Come with me and you?ll see what fifty cents can fetch
And so last Monday, I found a dollar
Under my pillow where my tooth was
It fell out late at night on Sunday
And do you know where I went?
Can guess how much I spent?
. . . at the dollar store? No!
. . . at the candy store? No!
. . . at the toy store? No!
