"Pretty Penny" as written by Dean Deleo, Robert Emile Deleo, Eric Kretz and Scott Richard Weiland....
Have you seen your mother girl?
Has she gone away?
Gone away and found the pearl
But the price she paid

Gone, when you wake in the morning
Gone, when you find that there's no one sleeping
Gone, pretty Penny was her name
She was loved and we all will miss her

How far will you go I say, just to bait a mouse?
Shorter lived and longer gone
Can you figure out?

Gone, when you wake in the morning
Gone, when you find that there's no one sleeping
Gone, pretty Penny was her name
She was loved and we all will miss her

Have you lost your sister girl?
She's all but blown away
Blown away and lost the pearl
And the price she paid

Gone, when you wake in the morning
Gone, when you find that there's no one sleeping
Gone, pretty Penny was her name
She was loved and we all will miss her

    General Commentthis is what scott had to say about this song:

    "I wrote it third person and I only realized a couple weeks ago when I finally listened to the whole album that it was actually an introspective thing. It's easier to write in an allegorical sense-third person-when it's something you have a hard time looking at. It's probably one of my favorite songs on the album. I think people are going to either love it or hate it."
