"Penny And Me" as written by and Taylor Hanson Isaac Hanson....
Cigars in the summertime under the sky by the light
I can feel you read my mind
I can see it in your eyes under the moon as it plays
Like music every line
There's a rug with bleeding dye under the fan in the room
Where the passions burning high by the chair
With the leopard skin under the light
It's always Penny and me tonight

On the plane step up with both my feet
Riding in seat number 3 on a flight to NYC
Got my bean in a coffee cup next to my seat
Catch the view and another good book to read
Sitting at home over the friendly skies
Missing her eyes
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes, pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight

Staring at a million city lights
But it's still Penny and I all alone beneath the sky
Feel the wind brushing slowly by
If I could soar I'd try to take these wings and fly
Away to where the leaves turn red
But no matter where I am instead
Singing along to feeling alright
Or making it by under pink moonlight
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes, pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight

Penny likes to get away and drown her pain in lemonade
Penny dreams of rainy days and nights up late by the fireplace
And aimless conversations about the better days

Singing along to feeling alright, yeah
Or making it by under pink moonlight
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight

Penny and me tonight
Penny and me tonight
Penny and me tonight

    General Commentthis song is so totally about memories that you hang onto and remember as you get older. i mean, Penny isn't an actual girl, she's cumulative memories from over the years that you think about as you grow up. like rolling the windows down, turning the radio up and pushing the pedal to the ground. that's something you remember because you had fun doing it... HANSON FOREVER!!

    General CommentThis is no surprise really. I may not have listened to their music before. But think about how good that music was for how young they were. They're definitely talented guys, and it's no surprise they were gonna get into more of a rock sound as they got older. It's a good tune.

    General CommentDoes it get any better than this? I don't think so...

    No teeny bopper here by the way, just a straight up 24 year old male who digs Rock and Roll. Do not deny this song

    General CommentNot that I don't appreciate Mmmbop for what it is-- a super fun (which is ironic, looking at the lyrics) pop smash that definitely takes me back to being a kid. I also admire the fact that they were so young and could write pretty well on a mature subject (loss of innocence...). But THIS song definitely defines who Hanson is now and who've they've always been...music lovers. They recognize that certain songs are very important at specific points of your life and the power music has to bring you back to that place every time you hear it. Not to mention, you can never go wrong with referencing some of the GREATEST influences we have in music today--THE BEATLES! Personally, I (like a lot of the people commenting on this song, which is very refreshing) was not a fan of Hanson when Mmmbop was HUGE. In fact, I stumbled upon this song very late at night around on a late night talk show just a few years ago and couldn't believe my eyes/ ears when i heard it was from Hanson! I've been hooked on them ever since! I really think they deserve a lot more credit for their wonderful music and great charitable efforts.

    General CommentI wonder if Taylor named Penelope after this song because the song was written before she was born. Anyway, this song is absolutely amazing!!! Especially the live acustic version on the DVD. I love how much the crowd gets into it! :)

    General CommentI don't think it's actually about Penelope, since she wasn't born when the song was written, and it is obviously about a girl around the same age as him, even if it's not necessarily a "romance".
