Thread Name: Lyr Req: Silver Dollar / Man without a Woman
Subject: RE: Origins: Roll a Silver Dollar/Man Withou
From memory circa 1947, I recall my Mum hated it!

You can throw a silver dollar down upon the ground,
And it will ro-o-oll,
Because it's row=ow-ound,
A woman never knows what a good man she's got,
Until she turns him down-down-down-down,
So listen my honey, listen to me, I want you to understand,
That as a silver dollar goes from hand to hand,
A woman goes from man to man.

A man without a woman, is like a ship without a sail,
A boat without a rudder or a fish without a tail,
A man without a woman is like a wreck upon the sand,
There's only one thing wose in the universe
And that's a woman without a man.

Repeat ad nauseam
