Careful what you wish for
Chorus
I picked up a penny in a parking lot
Made a wish and it came true.
Made a wish upon a falling star
For gold and silver too.
Be careful what you wish for
It’s liable to come true.
Verse
Lo and behold I made it big
Bought a house upon a hill
Bought a Cadillac and red corvette
And started taking pills.
Was wanted by beautiful women
Was the envy of the guys
But behind my dark sunglasses
There was sadness in my eyes.
Chorus
I picked up a penny in a parking lot
Made a wish and it came true.
Made a wish upon a falling star
For gold and silver too.
Be careful what you wish for
It’s liable to come true.
Verse
Lo and behold I made it big
Bought a girl a diamond ring
Bought her fur coats and a Bentley
She loved beautiful things.
She loved me to get what she wanted
What she wanted wasn’t my heart.
Like an actress in a movie
Who had memorized her part.
Chorus
I picked up a penny in a parking lot
Made a wish and it came true.
Made a wish upon a falling star
For gold and silver too.
Be careful what you wish for
It’s liable to come true.
Bridge
They say money buys happiness
but I know that’s a lie.
The more you make the more it takes.
Money ruins your life.

I’ve stumbled upon different lyrics from you on this forum for a while now and I must say that I admire your inspiration flow… It’s something I think other writers would kill to have, so to speak. In reference to the story of the lyrics, it speaks to something that is very common in society. Yet, it’s so artfully and simplistically done that the message comes across in a pleasant way. Thank you for sharing as usual.
