Verse 1

So many things can happen, twenty one years from today.

We may stop walking together, somewhere along the way.

I may find love somewhere, you may be in another city.

But I'm still hoping that somehow you'll end up with me.

Chorus

Because twenty one years from now

I still want you to owe me my twenty one cents.

And I wanna be the grumbling wife

Complaining about it from the kitchen.

Hey, where's my twenty one cents?

Verse 2

So many things can happen, twenty one years from today.

Maybe I'll make you fall in love with me, maybe I'll make you stay.

Maybe I'll make you promise that you'll never ever walk away.

And maybe I'll hold you to it, twenty one years from today.

Chorus

Because twenty one years from now

I still want you to owe me my twenty one cents.

And I wanna be the grumbling wife

Complaining about it from the kitchen.

Is it crazy to wish something as trivial as twenty one cents

Will be another running gag between us, is it too insignificant?

And I hope I won't end up being a stranger from across the street,

Yelling at you, hey, where's my twenty one cents?

Bridge

Hey, you owe me twenty one cents.

And another enchanted evening that I'll never forget.

Just like the day we met.

Or all the evenings that we've spent

Joking about my twenty one cents.

Chorus

And twenty one years from now

I still want you to owe me my twenty one cents.

And I wanna be the grumbling wife

Complaining about it from the kitchen.

Hey, where's my twenty one cents?

Outro

You can keep it, baby,

I only want that smile on your lips to be ever present.

That's worth a hundred thousand twenty one cents.

There's my twenty one cents.

There's life's best present…
