'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!
And traded them to Lou
For three times -- I guess he don't know
That three is more than two!
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickles for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head--
Too proud of me to speak!
