A penny for your thought, he said,
I shook my head and said no
He asked why I would not share.
I said because I'm feeling low.
He quickly smiled and tried to cheer
Me with a funny happy face
It made me laugh a little bit
But it didn't change my pace.
My thoughts are worth much more than that
I told him as I smiled right back
Well, how much are they worth to you
Asked my good friend Mack?
A million dollars might help, I said
He shook his head up and down.
Okay my friend I'll give you that
If it will replace your grumpy frown.
How much is a smile worth
Between friends it's worth that price
I hugged him close and whispered I'm glad
We're friends because you're so very nice.
