I Know I'm Smart

          My dad gave me one dollar bill
          'Cause I'm his smartest son,
          And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
          'Cause two is more than one!

          And then I took the quarters
          And traded them to Lou
          For three dimes--I guess he didn't know
          That three is more than two!

          Just then, along came old blind Bates
          And just 'cause he can't see
          He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
          And four is more than three!

          And I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
          Down at the seed-feed store,
          And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
          And five is more than four!

          And I went and showed my dad,
          And he got red in the cheeks
          And closed his eyes and shook his head--
          Too proud of me to speak!
