Change Jar

© 2010 Allen, Vinton & Godfrey
Put a little change in the change jar…

You say you’re waitin’ for a change
But change just won’t come.
You’ve seen so many things
And you know you’re wantin’ some.
So what you waitin’ for, baby?
You’ve got the power in your hands.
A penny and a nickel and a dime
And soon you’ll be travelin’ distant lands.

Put a little change in the change jar…

Why you got to complain?
You know you get what you give.
And while you sit there worryin’
You should get out some and live.
Let me take you out, baby?
Ah, there’s no changin’ you.
So if you’ve got to stay at home
There’s only one thing to do.

Put a little change in the change jar…

A snowflake falls.
A feather ain’t even that light.
But by the end of the storm
The branch is down despite its might.
A little straw
That broke the camel’s back,
Works the same as your mind
When you let go of what you lack.

Put a little change in the change jar…
