Silver Dollar

This song is by Teresa Brewer and appears on the Compilation album Miss Versatility (2011) and on the Compilation album Hula Hoop Song (2014).

A-rolling, a-rolling
A-rolling, just a-rolling
A-rolling, a-rolling
A-rolling, just a-rolling

You can throw a silver dollar
Down upon on the ground
And it'll roll because
It was round

A woman doesn't know
What a good man she's lost
Until she throws him down

So listen
Listen, listen to me
I'll make you understand

How a dollar always
Travels from hand to hand
But a woman goes
From man to man
How goes from man to man

Oh, man without a woman is
Like a ship without a sail
A boat without a rudder
Or a fish without a tail

Oh, a man without a woman isn't
Worth a little grain of sand
But there's one thing worse
In this universe and that's
A woman without a man
A woman without a man

Yes, a woman never knows
What a good man she's got
Until she turns him down

And a dollar always
Travels from hand to hand
But a woman goes
From man to man
How goes from man to man

Life's a woman, a woman
Yes, a woman

You throw a silver dollar
Down upon on the ground
And it'll roll
Because it's round

A woman doesn't know
What a good man she's lost
Until she throws him down

So listen
Listen, listen to me
I'll make you understand

How a dollar always
Travels from hand to hand
But a woman goes
From man to man

(But not always)
A woman goes
From man to man

That's a woman
