The Lyrics

Heard one of my friends fifth child complaining he never owned anything new, he only got hand me downs, so this came to mind.
I wish I Could Own Something New

Brother, I really appreciate this beautiful, second hand lawn mower
Even with the muffler gone
And lights that don't light no more
I'm sure I can find a carburetor, and a rear tire that will do
Lord, I just wish I could own something new

I'd just like to own something new
Something shiny and all my own, that wasn't onetime owned by you
Well you can call me ungrateful
But I think I've paid my dues
I'd just like to own something new

Spoken : " Pick it Coral Reefers, here we go."


I'd just like to own something new
Something shiny and all my own, that wasn't onetime owned by you
Well you can call me ungrateful
But I think I've paid my dues
I'd just like to own something new
Yeah, now man I say, " Lord "
I'd just like to own something new
