(1997) Song Break: Roll of Penny’s by CCritt93

Roll of Penny’s
Adapted from “Bed of Rose’s” (Harold Reid)

I am stuck with a discriminating palate
I’m more a fan of walnuts than of wheat
But as hard as I may try, one thing I can’t deny
A twenty-seven-year-old* boy has got to eat

There’s Penny in her kitchen Monday evenin’
Warmin’ up her spy who came in from the cold
And in a sight I still am not believin’
With just a cookie sheet she fixed some rolls

This roll of Penny’s that I’m tastin’
I’d never dream was from a can
This roll of Penny’s I’m not wastin’
How she makes them I may never understand

She kissed me and said, “Secret, I’ll be busy”
And led me to my cozy easy chair
But then I saw it all in the mirror
And learned exactly how they were prepared

The dough was just laid out and never beaten
No, she didn’t even let me lick a bowl
But of the fresh baked goods I’ve ever eaten
The sweetest of them all are Penny’s rolls

This roll of Penny’s that I’m tastin’
I’d never dream was from a can
This roll of Penny’s I’m not wastin’
How she makes them I may never understand

This roll of Penny’s that I’m tastin’
I’d never dream was from a can
This roll of Penny’s I’m not wastin’
How she makes them I may never understand
Mmm mmm mmm mmmmm

*Secret’s age is to be reckoned from 1993 Sep 5.

From 1997. Adapted from “Bed of Rose’s” by Harold Reid, a 1970 single for the Statler Brothers.

What is Penny cooking up for Secret? He’s in for a bit of a surprise.
