The Rumble Strips – Pennies lyrics

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...
