My goodtime friends have put me down
I'm all alone in your town
You know I don't have no place to go
The woman I love she don't want me no more
I'm just trying to explain
I need a penny to call my baby
You don't seem to understand
I need a penny to call my baby
You know she asked me to call her on the phone
She got the nerve to tell me she all alone
I'm just trying to explain
I need a penny to call my baby

I'm just trying to make you understand
I need a penny to call my baby
Now I don't have no peace of mind
I'm just trying to seek what I can find
I'm just trying to explain
I need a penny to call my baby

Now I want to tell you when I wake up in the morning
And I find now baby I'm all by myself
I feel so disatisfied
When I go to work and I come home in the evening
And there ain't nobody there
I feel so disatisfied
Oh give me a penny baby, give me a penny baby
My wife, now my wife she left me
Give me a penny
Give me a penny
