From the album Pollyanna’s Attic.

Written by Carolyn Arends.

Hey you, with the time why don’t you spend it
If you’ve got a dime why don’t you lend it
If you’ve got hands then get them reaching out
If you’ve got feet then get up off the couch

There’s nothing so rude
As a gift you don’t use
Or a life that you choose not to live
‘Cause you’re blessed to bless
And the best of possessions is
Having something to give

Hey you, with the song, why don’t you sing it
If you’ve got a lunch why don’t you bring it
And if you’ve got a dream don’t let it die
If you’ve got a will come on and try

There’s nothing so rude
As a gift you don’t use
Or a life that you choose not to live
‘Cause you’re blessed to bless
And the best of possessions is
Having something to give

Strength that’s wasted always wastes away
But love that’s lived gets stronger every day

There’s nothing so rude
As a gift you don’t use
Or a life that you choose not to live
‘Cause you’re blessed to bless
And the best of possessions is
Having something …
You’ve got something to give
