Pennies in the Dustpan

by: Katie Roche


We lost everything, everything, everything
We lost everything, everything, everything

From where we hid we heard it all wash away
I don’t even pray but I heard myself say

Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
so that we can make a new beginning
Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
So that we can begin again

We lost everything , everything , everything
We lost everything, everything, everything

Wall street man you know,
Well he got paid to go away
So I saved my money with another man
and he spent it - on his - baby!

Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
so that we can make a new beginning
Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
So that we can begin again

We lost everything , everything , everything
We lost everything, everything, everything

We didn't have much to line our walls but we were getting by
when the whole world shook, so did I

Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
so that we can make a new beginning
Oh, please, let there be some pennies in the dustpan
So that we can begin again

We lost everything, everything, everything
