Pennies

from by The Carolan Brothers

lyrics

Brother dear, I hate to be so petty,
But I'm calling in the change that you owe me
If I had, if I had all of your pennies,
I would be a very rich man indeed.

Cos though, they might not seem like much,
The pennies all add up but you can always count on my love
Though, they might not seem like much,
The pennies all add up but you can always count on my love

Brother dear, I would give you back your pennies,
I would give them back to you as soon as you know
That if I called in all the favours I done for you,
All the acts I've done in love, you'd be a very poor soul.

Cos though, the pennies all add up,
They wouldn't amount to much if you could not count on my love
Though, the pennies all add up,
They wouldn't amount to much if you could not count on my love

I know I treat you rough,
And if I ever ask too much, you can always count on my love
Though it might not seem like much, and it never gets said enough,
But you can always count on my love.

Brother dear, don't spend life counting pennies,
To live as a rich man, but die a poor soul.
