Lyrics by Tripod


Little boy
Listen, I’ll tell
Little boy
You can do well

Buy and then sell,
Your pockets to swell,
Go straight to hell like Twopenny!

Little boy Follow his lead
Step by step
You could succeed!

Wealth guaranteed!
Never have need!
Lie there and bleed like Twopenny!

His assets were many
His silk purses burst at the seams

Now he’s not got any!
Invested by worms
for infinite terms,
the maggots long squirm in Twopenny!

Men of wealth
Borrow and lend
What dark deal
Brought him his end?

Whose coin did he spend?
Which loyal friend
Drew a dread dividend from Twopenny?

Sea of blood
Watch as he drowns
As he sinks
So goes the pound

Shillings and crowns
Princes and clowns
We all go down with Twopenny!

His goblet now empty
His fine wine is splashed on the stones!

A hero to many
Decays in his vault
Entombed with his gold
Like pharaohs of old, old Twopenny!

Old Philip Twopenny
My son, study closely his tale

Oh sing it again he’s
A turd that’s interred for eternity
Suck on it, old Phillip Twopenny!
