Penny Wise

Penny wise and a pound fool
A pocket full of shiny copper
On my bike and off to school
A fireball bazooka bubblegum shopper.
A pocket full of shiny copper
Coasting toward the corner store
A fireball bazooka bubblegum shopper
Loaded for bear and wanting more
Coasting toward the corner store
Better hurry or I’ll be late
Loaded for bear and wanting more
Twenty penny candies wait.
Better hurry or I’ll be late
On my bike and off to school
Twenty penny candies wait
Penny wise and a pound fool!
