Em / G / Eb
Chorus: A penny saved is a penny earnt, And, a penny spent is a penny burnt, Shall we then spend none at all, And, rue the lessons left unlearnt? In order to reach many, First, I need "a" penny, Then... Do I spend? Or, could I lend? How to behave, Save... Or, wave... Bye-bye? Why? Chorus 100 pennies in a buck, And, with any luck, There'll be enough interest, In the interest rate, The money lent, Will appreciate... Exponentially, For if it's squared, I'm there -- A picture of Ben. (He is still, The only non-dead president, To get his own bill.) Then, I can spend the rest, On what is best. Chorus Ahhh... I can see, There is a fine line, Between necessity, And, being greedy -- Mine, mine, mine. Not just for me, But, for all of us, To be frivolous, Could be disastrous. Chorus Gotta penny, In my pocket, Not gonna let it, Burn a hole, Until I've plenty, Gonna hold, Tight, Once I've earned, Once I've learned, Then, I might, Recommend, How to spend. Chorus Sooner or later, We all fall, What good is it then, If you spent none at all?
