There's a little girl lives on our street she's awful sweet and pretty
The boys stand on their heads for her but she thinks they're all silly
She's got freckles on her nose her hair is light and sandy
Penelope Candance is her name but we call her Penny Candy
She doesn't know what a nickel is she's got no use for dollars
There's always a penny in her hand and a licorise on her collar
She's the sweetest girl in town the little boys think she's a dandy
But the monkey shines don't bother her when she's eatin' Penny Candy
Penny Candy she eats that messy kind Penny Candy she eats it all the time
[ guitar ]
She brightens up the neighborhood her little face is always glowing
And when she's in a hurry we all know where she's a going
It's to the little corner store that's awful close and handy
Then once again her happy face is black with Penny Candy
Penny Candy she eats that messy kind Penny Candy she eats it all the time
[ guitar ]
She's always got a smile for you if you should ever meet her
And with Candy on her face her smile is a little sweeter
Penelope Candance is her name and she likes that fine and dandy
But if you want to see her dimples show just call her Penny Candy
Penny Candy she eats that messy kind Penny Candy she eats it all the time
