by Team Sammy

No Free Rides

Parents have your kids read the lyrics to the Sammy Rabbit money song titled, No Free Rides!

Music is a fun, easy and time efficient way to talk to and teach kids about money! It is also a Sammyriffic way to celebrate great money habits. Music and singing bring joy and energy to the money lesson learning process.

7 Step Money Lesson for Kids Who Like Music on No Free Rides - You Can't Get Something for Nothing

Here are seven simple steps that will have parents, teachers and trainers talking to and teaching young kids about money in no time at all and specifically that you can not get something for nothing - there are no free rides!

Step 1. Read Song Lyrics Together


Can't get something for nothing

No matter what they say

You should take it for certain

That someone has to pay


Nothing's free - no free rides

You may think something's free

But someone pays the price

Nothing's free - no free rides

No, no, no - no free rides


You may read on the package

That there's a free gift inside

But try to remember

As you try to claim the prize


Nothing's free - no free rides

When you think that something's free

It's you and me that pay the price

Nothing's free - no free rides

No, no, no - no free rides


No exception to the rule

Zero, zip, zilch, nada, none at all


They're trying to sell you something

And they offer something free

To get your attention

But take, take, take it from me


Nothing's free - no free rides

Burn it in your memory

Burn it in your mind

Nothing's free - no free rides

No, no, no - no free rides


No free rides ... 8X

Step 2. Listen to the Song

Now listen to the song No Free Rides together. Listen as many times as you like!

Step 3. Discuss Song

The song lyrics share beginning ideas and call attention to the importance of understanding you can not get something for free. 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:

"...Can't get something for nothing..."

"...someone pays the price..."

"...Nothing's free - no free rides..."

Step 4. Activities

If you are a premium Sammy Rabbit Money School member, have your child, children or students complete one or all of the activities that accompany the song No Free Rides!

If you are not a premium School member, join. This is a wonderful way to support Sammy's mission to bring financial literacy education to kids and families across the world.

If you are Free member, listen to more music from Sammy's Song Series. And keep having discussions with your parents and teachers about the money habits shared in the songs.

Step 5. Review and Discuss Activities

After your child, children or students has completed the activities for the song No Free Rides, review and discuss them together.

Step 6. Deposits

Applied knowledge is powerful and life transforming.

  • Give your child or children opportunities to earn and save money.

  • Make a deposit with your child or children into a piggy bank, savings jar or into a savings account at the financial institution of your choice. Get them in the habit of earning money and saving some of it. Oh yes!

  • Have your child deposit the activities they complete into their Dream Big Journal!

Step 7. Keep Learning
