  • Throw me a penny and I'll make you a dream
    You find that life's not always what it seems, no no
    Then think of a rainbow and I'll make it come real
    Roll me, I'm a never ending wheel
    I'll give you a star
    So you know just where you are
    Don't you know that I might be
    Your wishing well
    Your wishing well

    Look in the water, tell me what do you see
    Reflections of the love you give to me
    Love isn't money, it's not something you buy
    So let me fill myself with tears you cry and why?

    Time is a never ending journey
    Love is a never ending smile
    Give me a sign to build a dream on
    Dream on
    Dream on, dream on, dream on, dream on

    Yeah, throw me a penny and I'll make you a dream
    You find that life's not always what it seems, no no
    Love isn't money, it's not something you buy
    Let me fill myself with tears you cry

    I'll give you a star
    So you know just where you are
    Someday, some way, you'll feel the things I say
    Dream for a while
    Of the things that make you smile
    'Cause you know
    Don't you know
    Oh, you know
    That I'm your wishing well

    Your wishing well
    Your wishing well
    I wish you well
    I'm your wishing well Writer/s: RONNIE JAMES DIO, TERRENCE BUTLER, TONY IOMMI, WILLIAM T. WARD
