Lyrics

I was born in a small town
Just nearby the stream
With a butcher and a bakery
Hell, they even brew their beer
Where everybody knows your name and
knows every step you take
I sometimes wished myself out of this place

I wished upon a penny
in the fountain near the park
I swear I could touch that falling star
I even caught a lady bug
But I guess it never got me far

In the summer when the corn's high
and its leaves are hanging dry
The garden's packed with all of my friends
and the bottles are stacked on ice
I look upon that silver moon
and wonder if I'll make
a difference in a bigger town someday

I wished upon a penny
in the fountain near the park
I swear I could touch that falling star
I even caught a lady bug
But I guess it never got me far

Ooooohh...
Ooooohh...
Ooooohh...
Ooooohh...

But the golden dream
is not quite what it seems
When none of my friends are near

So I forgot about that penny
sitting out here in the yard
And when we see that falling star
it feels like one beating heart
and we're fine right where we are

I wished upon a penny
in the fountain near the park
I swear I could touch that falling star
I even caught a lady bug
But I guess it never got me far
Yeah we're fine right where we are
