HANDOUT 1: "The Magic Penny Song" Lyrics

Malvina Reynolds, copyright 1955 and 1958 by Northern Music Corporation, renewed 1986; permission pending.

Love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

It's just like a magic penny,

Hold it tight and you won't have any.

Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many

They'll roll all over the floor.

For love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

Money doesn't have magic in it,

Things we buy might break in a minute,

Love's a circle, so let's begin it

And bring it to every door

For love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

So let's go dancing till the break of day,

And if there's a piper, we can pay.

For love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.

For love is something if you give it away,

Give it away, give it away.

Love is something if you give it away,

You end up having more.
