Someday

Our story starts with Samuel skipping down the sidewalk
With a shuffle in his step and a smile on his mouth
Heíd saved seventy six cents since Saturday you see
He was off to the store to spend it on a snack to eat

When suddenly Samuel saw Sally standing by the street
With slump in her shoulders and a suitcase at her feet
Samuel thought she was a such a sad site to see
He said, ďSally why are you looking so bleak?Ē

Well, Sally said, ďSamuel itís a sort of a sorry story I must sayĒ
I need to get all the way to the South side of town someway
To visit my sister cause I miss her.I havenít seen her in so long
But she lives so many miles away, itís too far to walk.

I tried to buy a bus ticket but Iím a sorta shorthanded
Itís slightly more than I can afford so here I still stand
And just like a hair plucked from a head
Iím stranded

Samuel thought about the money in his pocket and he saw his fried in need
He said, ďSally, here take this money.Iíll give it to you happily.Ē


And Sally said, ďSam, say you made my day
Showing up and helping me out that way.
Itís such a nice thing I just canít repay.
You know Iíll never understand
What I did to deserve such a good, good friend
But you know what they say is true.
Every little good deed that you do
Is gonna come back to you someday.

 

Our story shifts scenes to the South side of town
Where Sally was steppiní off the bus and smiling around
She had sunshine on her shoulders and a spring in her feet
Cause she had some time to spend and a sister to see

When suddenly Sally saw Silas sitting in his truck
Off to the side of the road, stalled down in a rut
He was slouched in his seat with a sulk in his eye
She said, ďSilas who took the air outta your tires?Ē

Well, Silas said, ďSally itís a sort of a sorry story I must sayĒ
I saw something in the street and swerved out of the way
My truck started to skid,and the steering wheel slipped, and I slid of the shoulder and down in the ditch
And sunk in the sand and here I sit

I tried to drive it out but the wheels just spin in this stuff
I tried to push it out but Iím not strong enough
So like a porcupine handler who lost his gloves
Iím stuck

Sally thought about her sister, and she saw her friend in need.
She said, ďSilas Iíve got some time to spare.Iíll help you out happily.Ē



And Silas said, ďSal, say you made my day
Showing up and helping me out that way.
Itís such a nice thing I just canít repay.
You know Iíll never understand
What I did to deserve such a good, good friend
But you know what they say is true.
Every little good deed that you do
Is gonna come back to you someday.

Our story continues out in the countryside
Where Silas was out for a spin and in overdrive
Sitting straight in his seat with a sparkle in his eye
Cause his truck was unstuck and he was out for a ride



When suddenly Silas saw Susan sitting by a sign
Beside a big olí stack of sweet potato pies
She had a scrunch in her lip and a scowl on her face
And Silas said, ďSusan whatís got you looking so outta place?Ē

Susan said, ďSilas itís a sort of a sorry story I must sayĒ
I baked all these sweet potato pies today
I need to ship them to the supermarket store to sell
I need to get them there quick before they get stale

I tried to think of a way to get them to the store but
Iíve pondered and Iíve wondered and Iíve had no luck
So just like a tree cut off at the knees
Iím stumped

Silas thought about the open road and he saw his friend in need
He said, ďSusan you can borrow my truck.Iíll lend it to you happily.Ē


And Susan said, ďSi, say you made my day
Showing up and helping me out that way.
Itís such a nice thing I just canít repay.
You know Iíll never understand
What I did to deserve such a good, good friend
But you know what they say is true.
Every little good deed that you do
Is gonna come back to you someday.

Our story isnít over thereís a little bit more
Because Susan was pulling up to the supermarket store
She had a song on her lips and smirk on her face
Cause she was delivering her sweet potato pies that day

When suddenly Susan saw Samuel, you remember him.
Yeah, he was at the start of the story.Well here he is at the end.
But he had a stumble in his step and a sag in his mouth
Susan said, ďSamuel whatís got you so down and out?Ē

Well, Samuel said, ďSusan itís a sort of a sorry story I must sayĒ
I havenít had anything to eat all day
My stomach is empty and I simply should scrounge something up
But Iím starving and I can hardly stand up



I had some money I saved to go to the store to buy a snack to eat
But I donít have any money anymore you see
So like a ship on the sea with a hole underneath
Iím sunk

Susan thought about her sweet potato pies, and she saw her friend in need
She thought, ďSam is such a good, good guy, and that guy has got to eat!Ē
She said, ďSam Iíve got some food right here
Iíll share it with you happily
Cause you know you can always count on me.Ē


And Sam said, ďSue, say you made my day
Showing up and helping me out that way.
Itís such a nice thing I just canít repay.
You know Iíll never understand
What I did to deserve such a good, good friend
But you know what they say is true.
Every little good deed that you do
Is gonna come back to you someday.
