lyrics

It all started with a red paperclip
I took the journey of my life
On a quest for another trade
I want to trade with you

Don't be shy, tell me what you've got
I just might wanna make the drive
Is it new or is it hand made?
Make an offer I can't refuse

Don't think I don't have the time
To check out what you've got to trade me
Right now I wanna make it mine
This is my destiny

And it's all I can do
To make a trade with you
Just one red paperclip
Whatcha got to trade for it?
What do you have to lose?

A fish-shaped pen or a trip for two
A years free rent in Arizona
It all started with a paperclip
And nothing else to do

This is the story of my life
Trading up for happiness
It started out as just a joke
But now I feel brand new

Don't think I don't have the time
To check out what you've got to trade me
Right now I wanna make it mine
This is my destiny

And it's all I can do
To make a trade with you
Just one red paperclip
Whatcha got to trade for it?
What do you have to lose?
What do you have to lose?
