"I love finding old whatever and making it usable. I spend more time and money than I would had I purchased the item new, but there's something about saving something from the eternal abyss."


<div style="text-align: center;">BETTER THAN NEW<br />
(Jimmy Maraventano, Sr.)<br />
<br />
<br />
I once found this old guitar it was broken <br />
I polished up a few of the dings<br />
Put on a new set of strings<br />
Now it helps me to play some of my songs<br />
<br />
I once had this old blue truck it didn&rsquo;t run too well<br />
I changed the spark plug wires<br />
My buddy Mike got me a set of tires<br />
And now it gets me to where I need to go<br />
<br />
CHORUS<br />
See with more than your eyes<br />
Hear with more than your ears<br />
Some things that seem finished are still good for years<br />
Take my advice<br />
It&rsquo;s really up to you<br />
Some things that seem finished are better than new<br />
<br />
I once had this real great girl and I wish her well<br />
I really don&rsquo;t know why<br />
But sometimes I made her cry<br />
I wish I had that chance with her again<br />
<br />
I once had this old grandma and I miss her so<br />
Sometimes we&rsquo;d sit and talk<br />
Maybe go for a walk<br />
She&rsquo;d get me through the problems of my days<br />
