Pennies from Heaven

Pennies from Heaven

Walking ’round the streets, one place to another and I feel like I lost out on a will. No you don’t come here. Yes you’ve got to go there as well. Wait here a minute, but I’ve been here three hours. My legs are aching ‘cos the seats have all gone. Hey you over there, there’s a cubicle spare. So come on.

Honey, I need money. Money to find my way. I ain’t had a bite since Saturday night and that is now three days.

She looked at me like I’m some sort of beggar. You know it’s hard to keep your temper at times. We don’t know if to pay you ‘cos your being out of work is a crime, yes a crime. We decided after thinking, your career is sinking, so we’ll offer you a tenner a week. Who was it that said, it was the Bible I read, said the ones that inherit are meek?

Honey, I need money. Money to find my way. I ain’t had a bite since Saturday night and that is now three days.

One minute I’m in Euston, the next I’m in Camden. They send me back to Kentish Town. I’ve completed lap two, there’s a hole in my shoe and I’m down, yes I’m down. It’s been such an ordeal, and the way that I feel when I get a letter next day. Saying there’s something down here, that we need to clear up and if you don’t come, you don’t get paid.

Honey, I need money. Money to find my way. I ain’t had a bite since Saturday night and that is now three days. Honey, I need money. Money to find my way. I ain’t had a bite since Saturday night and that is now three days.
