"Pennies" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
And I stumbled onto you
As you stumbled over me
And you say the fates were cruel
For throwing us together
I always loved you so
Especially when you'd go
All the world must know
That I loved you so

Its a pity we're apart
Its a shame you broke my heart
But I've got a new girlfriend
She looks a lot like you dear
No one could ever do dear
All the world must know
That I loved you so
Especially when you'd go
Especially when you'd go away and leave me here
Go away and leave me alone
All the world must know

Pennies for sale

    General CommentI always thought 'pennies for sale' was like selling something of no value. He's discovered that he wants her, but she's moved on, and he can't convince her to want him. Even though her distance only sells him more, she is done with him.
