My Money, My Dollar


She came to the world like a baby,

And all were happy to receive her

Her owner welcomed her ,

Like an angel, she looked in her towel,

Covered and protected, from cold hands,

Others gave her security codes,

To access her, know her password,

But she never liked being kept.

Soon was growing, wanted to explore,

My money, my dollar.

Her little sister's name is coiny,

She is noisy and she's bubbly,

Always making noise in the wallets,

Or the bag she is kept in.

Many don't like her ,when she's angry,

The noise she makes , leaves you worry,

She is gone they wish to find her,

Even the beggers love her presence,

Her shrill voice will make them smile.

My money, my dollar.

When in shopping, she is present,

Many like to give her away,

Others like to keep her sister coiny in

Exchange for her notey.

And they smile whenever they see her

My money, my dollar.

To your station, She will will take you,

Transportation and vacation,

Leaving you a coiny or a penny,

For your pocket.

Gifts in bandles she is present,

Catching up with your wallet.

They are friends in need and spending,

And you learn to say her name,

My money, my dollar.

She is present in your sickness,

Paying the doctors with her smile,

Life insurance and investments,

Those are all her lucky friends.

She will build your home and houses,

Buying you all the housing staff,

And you will praise her in the morning,

My money, my dollar.

Tuition, school fees and the parties,

Make your family and friends come


When she disappears from your wallet,

Some friends will run away from your


Till you learn to live with her little penny,

And you'll cry to wish her present,

My money, my dollar.

They will tell you to befriend her wisely,

Spend her little and keep her in safe,

When she grows and has her family,

And you smile to see them many,

And your heart you'll hide the secret,

That you have them growing and many.

Notes, and penny in your bank.

And you'll proudly say their names,

My money, my dollars.
