I always thought that it was for good luck, but I love this version better.
I found a penny today
Laying on the ground.
But it's not just a penny,
This little coin I've found.
Found pennies come from Heaven,
that's what my Grandpa told me.
He said Angels toss them down,
Oh how I loved that story.
He said when an Angel misses you,
They toss a penny down;
Sometimes just to cheer you up,
To make a smile out of your frown.
So, don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue.
It may be a penny from Heaven
That an Angel's tossed to you.
So pass this on to people you care about
And who you feel are Angels to you ~
I just did!!
An Angel is now watching over you,
So Have a Wonderful Day!
