lyrics

i just found a penny on the ground call it luck
just a little Lincoln and i know he's not worth that much
he was kinda shiny so i guess i kinda picked him up
but he was on tails so i guess that makes me kinda dumb

i put him my pocket and then i just walked away
thanking my good fortune and continuing about my day
hearing music in my pocket my happy little penny sings
playing with my pocket lint and all the keys on my ring

penny penny you're bad luck
dark clouds go where i go
penny penny you're bad luck
dark clouds go where you go

i just found a penny on the ground but it brought bad luck
just a little tarnished tender terrorizing copper slug
cashiers turn their noses when i introduce him at the store
because there's no such thing as penny candy anymore

an oversized tyrant who knows he's a dime who failed
jinxed like the chain letter that i half-forgot to mail
cunning like a monkey and heartless like a parking maid
how do i get rid of this worthless little copper thing

i used to feel lucky that i found you
now i'll be happy when you're gone

how do i get rid of this cursed little copper thing
it doesn't get the hint and it will not seem to go away
it shows up unexpectedly and rains all over my parade
cunning like a monkey and heartless like a parking maid

i just found a penny on the ground call it luck
just a little lincoln and i know he's not worth that much
he was kinda shiny so i guess i kinda picked him up
it was on tails so i guess that kinda fucked my luck
