Pretty Penny

Woke up this morning with a penny on my skin
Figure I'm no princes but o, I love my gin
I tossed my penny down the wishing well
It through the bottom straight down to hell

and now the devil caught my penny he said that's one
you know it's gonna cost a little more for you my son
I snatched my penny man, I wished him well
joined him for a beer, figured what the hell

Oh Pretty Penny, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh Pretty Penny, well how about you
Oh Pretty Penny,
Oh Pretty Penny,
no matter what I do
I can't seem to get rid of you

I took my penny to a game of cards
I lost that money man, headed back to the bar
The bartender asked me, what'll it be
anything I can get for a penny

and now the bartender reached down
he reached for his gun
he said it's gonna cost a little more for you my son
well I shot him in his chest man
I stole that rum
and Now me and penny we're on the run

Oh Pretty Penny, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh Pretty Penny, well how about you
Oh Pretty Penny,
Oh Pretty Penny,
no matter what I do
I can't seem to get rid of you

I took my penny to a girl on the street
she said it's gonna cost a little more for me
I said I don't want ya in that kinda way
me and my penny need a place to stay
so then I took my penny down to that cash machine oh
to see if I could pull out maybe, something green
the guard tower asked me could you move along
I said, can I play you a little song called

Pretty Penny, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh Pretty Penny, well how about you
Oh Pretty Penny,
Oh Pretty Penny,
no matter what I do
I can't seem to get rid of you

Oh Pretty Penny, Oh, Oh, Oh,
Oh Pretty Penny, well how about you
Oh Pretty Penny,
Oh Pretty Penny,
no matter what I do
I can't seem to get rid of you
