Penny Plight

Written by: David Smalling

No more shall I afford again for love to wish
Or find the copper price of break buried in mud
No more its sound in the blind man's enamel dish
No more the bracelet toxic fountain turned to blood 

Or find the copper price of break buried in mud
The red penny used, forgotten, disdained, denied
No more the bracelet toxic fountain turned to blood
No more worth for economic drain villified

The red penny used, forgotten, disdained, denied
It freed my lips from juju and lollipops stain
No more worth for economic drain villified
The world is changing fast nothing good shall remain

It freed my lips from juju and lollipops stain
Nor shall I for a penny's wish find love and joy
The world is changing fast nothing good shall remain
As the penny goes so goes the girl and the boy.
