THREE LITTLE PENNIES (Kim Tribble / Tim Bays) Doug Stone - 1992 There was an old, blind man Who stood on the corner down town He was holding a cup filled up with nothing From the Christmas shopping crowd And though I barely came up to the top of his cane I reached up and gave him every cent to my name Three little pennies were all that I had One that I'd found and two from my Dad Three little pennies, not much of a gift But Dad said, "That's plenty, if it's all you can give" That evening my Dad told a wonderful story to me About a child in the manger and wise men who came Bearing gifts on the first Christmas Eve There was a part I'm sure he made up About a stable boy who couldn't give much Three little pennies were all that he had One that he found and two from his Dad Three little pennies, not much of a gift Dad said, "That's plenty, if it's all you can give" Next morning was Christmas And I had prayed hard for a bike But all that I found was the tiniest box With three shiny pennies inside And I was so disappointed 'cause I had been good But times had been bad, so I understood And Daddy said "Three little pennies were all that you had You gave them freely, so I gave 'em back Three little pennies, not much of a gift Your bike is outside 'cause you've learned how to give" (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2012)
