My Shiny, Shiny Little Pebble Drop

Oh, my shiny, shiny little pebble drop
You fell from the sky and into my palm
Sliding over my tough, tough skin
You are so delicate, so fragile
But, in the sun, you shine so bright
You mirror what you see
So, as I stare into you
You stare back at me
Oh, my shiny, shiny little pebble drop
When I let you slip through my fingers
You fall like you fell from the sky and into my palm
But, now you are joined by many, many others
Oh, my shiny, shiny little pebble drop
You fell from the sky and into my palm
And I let you drip into a puddle
Where you glisten ever brighter
So that as the world stares at you
You can mirror the world
