Song Break: A Penny To My Name (Lyrics) by CCritt93

A Penny To My Name

They say only rich men can prosper
It isn’t as simple as they claim
Of this I am sure
I will never be poor
With a Penny
Just a Penny
To my name

We both know the times are uncertain
Our dreams could be swallowed in flame
If it happened right now
I would make it somehow
With a Penny
Just a Penny
To my name

The skies won’t always be sunny
The good life is never guaranteed
But when things get rough ’cos we don’t have enough
A Penny is all that I need

Possessions could vanish tomorrow
Disappearing as easy as they came
If they all go away
I’ll be A-okay
With a Penny
Just a Penny
To my name

[Instrumental break]

The skies won’t always be sunny
The good life is never guaranteed
But when things get rough ’cos we don’t have enough
A Penny is all that I need

Your love, dear, is all that I value
More than all the world’s fortune and fame
So if you’ll be my wife
I’ll be set for life
With a Penny
Just a Penny
To my name

Yes, if you’ll be my wife
I’ll be set for life
With a Penny
Just you, Penny
To my name

A little doo-wop thing I threw together in summer 2013. Although the inspiration is obvious, the lyrics are not species-specific.

A scene setting up the song appears here.

Audio (a MIDI arrangement) here.
