Mom Bartering with her Boy

A penny for your thought, my dear
A penny for your thought
Because to share our thoughts, my dear
Is really all we’ve got

A dime to share your thought, my boy
A dime to keep or spend
But if you share your thoughts, my boy
This dime will buy a friend

A quarter for your thought, my son
A quarter just for you
And if you share your thoughts, my son
Then I might make it two

A dollar to keep quiet, mum
I’ll send it in the mail
These thoughts are all I have, sweet mum
And they are not for sale
