lyrics

I went walkin' with my pennies
Down to that old man's wishin' well
He said, "Come anytime"

[Chorus]
I'm headed back
To that old wishin' well

It's made of stone, grey and mossy
With an old frayed rope that hangs down way, way low
But the bucket fell of a long time ago
[chorus]

Yea, they never love you like they say they do
They never know just how to treat a woman right
NO matter what they say
[chorus]

I got moths in my oatmeal, ants in my sugar bowl
I found miss black widow hidin' under my covers
Baby, I don't like that at all, no
[chorus]

I'm sick and tired of hearing the news
Nobody wants to talk about loving no more
Everybody's tryin' to drive nails in everybody
[chorus]

He said, "Come on over here chil'
Look down deep in its soul like it's your own
And take a a penny, maybe two
Throw it down and wait for the splash
Wish with all your might"
[chorus]
