Lucky Penny - Regina Spektor

I didn't find the lucky penny
So I flipped it over and
left it for some one else to find

And a dime just in time
for the little kid behind me to pick it up and yell:
Hey, mom! I found a dime!

Then I turned around corner
and I dropped another dollar
Just in case the street needed some more cash

In the end I made it home with nothing in my pockets
except some cigarettes and some stones

I pick 'em up when I go walking
Some are shiny, all are dirty
Some are just pebbels that might grow up to be stones

As an adult no one can stop you
from getting your hands dirty
When you're walking home alone

Then I saw a little black cat
cross the street before a fast cab
Flashed and disappeared into the night

He glanced back understanding
of a future life impending
And we both knew it wasn't his time yet

I didn't find the lucky penny
So I flipped it over and
left it for some one else to find

And a dime just in time
for the little kid behind me to pick it up and yell:
Hey, mom! I found a dime!

And a dime just in time
for the little kid behind me to pick it up and yell:
Hey, mom! I found a dime!

And a dime just time
to pick it up and yell:
Hey, mom! I found a dime!
