A Dollar Worth


A big fog
Covers the world
Children do not do what I've done
To the hermit I was sold
Changed for a dollar
I'm a dollar worth

Children do not do what I've done
Among the things I got in mind
Isn't the one of going home
I came here one day
And here I will stay
With a sadness getting deep to my heart
With a hard Winter getting deep to my bone

The best to learn to walk
Is being born with a pair of strong legs
I got both but I got none
Something that taugh me
To hit the stone
And not getting hurt
My owner, the books on his shelf
Children do not do what I've done
Don't you ever leave home
If you leave it by yourself
