PENICILLIN PENNY

PENICILLIN PENNY
SHE'S THE OUEEN OF THE SUNSET STRIP
IF SHE EVER GIVES YOU
ANY THEN YOU BETTER SEE YOUR DOCTOR REAL QUICK
FROM THE BACK SEAT OF CADILLAC CARS
TO THE FLOORS OF MEN'S ROOM BARS
SHE'S PENICILLIN PENNY
AND HER FUTURE'S WRITTEN IN THE STARS.

SHE'S PENICILLIN PENNY
AND EVER SINCE THE DAY SHE CAME
THEY SAY SHE'S HAD ON MANY
SHE GIVES THEM NUMBERS NOT NAMES
I ALWAYS CALL HER HON'
BUT SHE CALLS ME One Thousand and One
AND PENICILLIN PENNY
STARTS TO BOGGIE WHEN THE DAY IS DONE.

SHE'S PENICILLIN PENNY
AND IF YOU EVER SEE HER PASSIN' THROUGH
BETTER RUN INTO YOUR HOUSE
BEFORE SHE STOPS AND LAYS A LITTLE ON YOU
'CAUSE IF YOU EVER LET HER IN YOUR DOOR
IT TAKES 20 MILLION UNITS OR MORE
TO CURE THE LOVE THAT
PENICILLIN PENNY'S GONNA LAY ON YOU.
