A Quarter In

A quarter is a fortune when you’re young

And the machines at the grocery store hold precious treasure

A quarter once could buy a phone call

Before there was a phone in every purse and pocket to be used at your leisure

A quarter could be saved away

Rolled up and taken to the bank when things got lean

A quarter at the Laundromat

Could get your clothes washed and clean

A quarter in the jukebox

Played fast and slow songs all night

A quarter at a toll booth

Keeps traffic moving along alright

A quarter can be as much or as little as you see fit

For me it means six hours of work, and eighteen more before I quit
