I've got a dollar that I want to save
Safe in my pocket, I'll try to hold fast
Hey, it might be my last

I know what I've got folded safe in its spot
I earned a dollar, it's not there to share
I've got a dollar and that's all I've got

A million more is just a single grain
A grain of sand or just one drop of rain
A small amount might make the difference these days
A dollar and a dream is all I could raise

I had a dream, I had all the answers
To all the questions I've ever been asked
And in my dream I had all the answers
To all the questions I've ever asked myself

Man, what a dream, it sure felt great
Took to the streets 'cause I couldn't wait
To free give wisdom and share what I knew
I had a dream and that's all I had

A million here lay down in pain every night
A million there to stay alive must fight
I'm sure my numbers underestimate
A dollar and a dream, I swear it's not too late

I had a dollar and I wanted to save
Keep in my pocket, I held fast
A dollar bill that I would take to my grave
Deep in my pocket like it was my last

Look for the dollar, now it's not there
Even the pants are a different pair
I earned the dollar, I had to share
I had a dollar and that's all I had

A million more is just a star in the sky
Tip of the iceberg but we've all got to try
Our work's cut out and there's work to be done
A dollar and a dream is step number, step number one
