THE DOLLAR BILL SONG (Breckman) Andy Breckman - 1990 Livingston Taylor - 1994 She took a dollar bill from her wallet She picked up a fountain pen She wrote down the words 'I love you' Next to the picture of George Washington She took the dollar bill to the grocery store And bought herself a chocolate cake She gave the dollar bill to the grocery man And then she went back home to wait The grocery man gave the dollar bill To a fat guy from Baton Rouge He spent the bill at the hardware store On a box of flat-top screws The hardware store gave the dollar bill To a customer named Clive Who, by the way, is the son Of one of the original Dave Clark Five He spent the bill at the laundramat They gave it to a lady named Fran Fran's younger son stole the bill from her purse And went to see Star Wars again The movie theatre guy spent the dollar bill On a subway ride uptown Three minutes later the bill was in the pocket Of a gamblin' man named Brown Brown blew the bill in a poker game He was fishin' for an inside straight The dollar went home with a man named Jones Who was sitting on a pair of eights Jones took the bill to a savings bank The teller's name was Dan Dan gave the bill to Oh my God, it's Rabbi Finkelman I'm with you all the time I can hear ya loud and clear Just give a tug along the line Ya know I will be there Anyway the Rabbi spent the bill On a ham and cheese to go They gave the bill to a guy named Phil Who gave it to his best friend Joe Joe had planned to spend it On some flowers for his bride But he was mugged by a junkie named Doug In the parking lot outside Doug's old lady spent the bill On a couple o' cans o' beer She eventually becomes a very famous poet But that don't matter here The liquor store guy put the dollar bill In his register, but then Doug the junkie said "Stick 'em up" And the dollar was his again He gave the bill to a girl named Jill Who gave it to a girl named Flo She gave the bill to a real short guy Who's name I do not know He gave the bill to another short guy Who gave it to a guy named Jake Jake took the bill to a bar 'n' grill And bought himself a sirloin steak Later that day I happened to say "Think I'll stop by the bar 'n' grill" The cashier counted out my change And handed me the dollar bill Well I ran to a phone and I dialled in her number As fast as my fingers could do I said "Baby, I just got your message" I said "Baby,I love you too" I said, I am with you all the time I can hear you loud and clear Just give a tug along the line You know I will be there" I said, Mary, you don't need no dime You don't need no subway fare Just give a tug along the line I said I'm with you everywhere I said I'm with you everywhere I said I'm with you everywhere (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2004)
