Step 1. Read Song Lyrics Together


Get in the habit, like Sammy Rabbit

savin money all the time

you can do it; now let's get to it

from every dollar, save a dime!


It ain't funny, when you got no money

So do yourself a favor, be like Sammy the Saver


You'll feel fine, saving one dime at a time

The song is filled with powerful personal finance concepts. Have a discussion with your child, children or students about the song. Ask them what lyrics from the song they like the most and why.

For example, I love the lyrics:

"From every dollar, save a dime..."

"You can do it. Now, let's get to it..."

"You can watch your money grow and grow and grow..."

Many kids have shared with me, they especially like the lyrics:

"It ain't funny when you got no money..."
