Something for a Song and a Dance
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Doug and Donny went to town with their mother. Donny had a nickel. Doug had a dime. They saw a gumball machine. Each gumball cost a quarter. Donny asked his mother for some money. She dug in the bottom of her purse. She only found a nickel. Now, they had twenty cents. This was not enough to buy a gumball. They needed enough money so they each could have a gumball.
 
2     Donny asked Doug, "How could we get thirty cents?"
 
3     Doug said, "I have an idea!"
