Penny For Your Thoughts

I like doo wop and the blues
I like heavy metal song
Tell me why I got to choose
Which side of the fence I’m on

Are you with me? Are you leaving?
Are you argumentative?
You all want some true believing
Why’d you act so tentative?

Don’t you act so sentimental
Kid, you got some nerve
The reason I like the instrumentals
Is cause they haven’t got any words!

Doo wop bop bop bop
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

I Johnny Walker Red
I like being juxtaposed
I like seeing Johnny’s dad
Wearing Johnny’s mother’s clothes

I the prince and you like the king
We both like the way Freddie Mercury sings
We’re into deep call this thing a fling
Which one of you is gonna let me swing?

Don’t you act so sentimental
Kid, you got some nerve
The reason I like the instrumentals
Is cause they haven’t got any words

Doo wop bop bop bop
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
Show me what you got, play it for me honey

You can be a man of faith
Or you can be a hired gun
You be 1988 and I’ll be 1941
Quit acting like a mama’s boy
Instead of your father’s son?

Doo wop bop bop bop
Penny for your thoughts, music for your money
Show me what you got, play it for me honey
