Entirely consisting of pennies and dimes
Well, maybe a quarter or two
But no fucking nickels
Your pocket has these little chimes
Reminding you what the cost is.
A penny saved is a penny earned,
Ain’t that right, Ben Franklin?
Well an everyday spent
Builds a debt of malcontent,
And daily pennies
Don’t outweigh that.
But “Keep collecting, saving up!
Because – perhaps –
By the time your married
Those daily pennies you save up
With be worth all that spare-same
That you carried.”
