I'm picking up pennies
But they don't give me any...
Of the luck that they promise
I aint got nothing but dreams of loving
I'll tell you something,
My pennies are piling up
... But I aint got no luck...
Oh I miss you my honey,
I wish you would phone me,
But you aint so lonely
You go out drinking, I see you laughing
When I'm out drinking all I do is cry
I'm such an unlucky guy...
Ohhhhh what am I to do with all this change?
Ohhhhh sitting in my room the answers plain
Ohhh I'll take it to a slot machine in town
Yeah turn my pennies into pounds...
Now I've got lots of money honey...
And all of a sudden you come
Rat tat tattin' on my door
I don't wanna see you anymore...
