For A Penny
-Artist: Pat Boone from "More Greatest Hits"-Varese Vintage VSC 5522
-peak Billboard position # 23 in 1959
-Words and Music by Charles Singleton

Darling, darling, darling
If you should say we're through
I would sell my heart for a penny
'cause it's worthless to me without you
Oh, oh, oh
With these arms I hold you
That's all I use them for
I would sell these arms for a penny
If they couldn't hold you any more
In other words I seem to have nothing at all
Unless I have you by my side
Without you my whole world would crumble and fall
But with you I'm so satisfied
Oh, oh darling, darling, darling
I swear by up above
For a penny, for a penny, for a penny
I'd give all that I own for your love
I'd give all that I own for your love
