Got a penny in my pocket
And a dollar in my hand
But I'd drop it in your tin cup
If you were a one man band
If I could make a million
On some TV show
Or the roulette wheel
In a great big casino
chorus:
I'd go ahead and do it
But only if I knew
I could go ahead and claim it
In the name of you
Whatever words I choose
Whatever tricks I'd use
I would find a way to claim it
In the name of you
I've got my favorite hat
With that snakeskin band
And when you need a little shade
I'll put it in your hands
To the bottom of the ocean
I would surely dive
To find the oldest oyster
With the biggest pearl inside
(repeat chorus)
I'd claim a country
I'd claim a tune
All the undiscovered territory
Out there beyond the moon
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
