COLLECTING

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


     CHORUS A:  I'm collecting, collecting.
                I'm saving everything.
                collecting, collecting,
                'til I've got everything.

            I.  there's a rare one, mint condition.
                I haven't got one yet.
                I will pay you book value
                just to complete my set...

     CHORUS B:  'cause I'm collecting, collecting
                'til I've got everything.

           II.  first edition used Band-Aids,
                numbered and signed razor blades,
                souvenir toilet bowls
                and proof set buttonholes.

     CHORUS C:  I'm collecting, collecting
                I'm saving everything.
                collecting, collecting
                'til I've got everything.

       BRIDGE:  I know a millionaire,
                a rags to riches guy.
                saved for all his life,
                until at last
                he has no past.

     CHORUS D:  he was collecting

     CHORUS E:  why am I collecting, collecting?
                why am I saving things?
                collecting, collecting
                when I can't have everything.
                but I'm collecting, collecting
                'til I've got everything.

       ENDING:  I know a millionaire...
                I know a millionaire...
