lyrics

"Twelve For A Penny"
I saw an ad for 12 cassettes for a penny.
I filled out the form for 12 cassettes for a penny.
I mailed the form for 12 cassettes for a penny.
And I waited for my 12 cassettes for a penny.
I ordered:
Pyromania, Theatre of Pain, Brothers in Arms & Purple Rain.
No Jacket Required, Speaking in Tongues, 1984 & Van Halen I.
Licensed to Ill, Who Made Who,
Pink Floyd The Wall (that one counted as two)
In 6 to 8 weeks, my cassettes arrived.
I was so excited I almost burst.
I didn’t know what to listen to first.
I opened the bill, it was for more than a penny.
They wanted my dollars and they wanted twenty!
Oh well, I got:
Pyromania, Theatre of Pain, Brothers in Arms & Purple Rain.
No Jacket Required, Speaking in Tongues, 1984 & Van Halen I.
Licensed to Ill, Who Made Who,
Pink Floyd The Wall (that one counted as two)
I got “The Joshua Tree” CD for my birthday.
And a compact disc player, yay!
I’d never heard anything sound so great.
I listened to it every day.
But, I only had one disc, that's not very many.
Then I saw an ad for 12 CD's for a penny!
I filled out the form for 12 CD's for a penny!
And I mailed the form for 12 CD's for a penny!
You know what I ordered:
Pyromania, Theatre of Pain, Brothers in Arms & Purple Rain.
No Jacket Required, Speaking in Tongues, 1984 & Van Halen I.
Licensed to Ill, Who Made Who,
Pink Floyd The Wall (that one counted as two)
Pyromania, Theatre of Pain, Brothers in Arms & Purple Rain.
No Jacket Required, Speaking in Tongues, 1984 & Van Halen I.
Licensed to Ill, Who Made Who,
Pink Floyd The Wall (that one counted as two)

Rob Lambert Chicago, Illinois

I'm in Chicago cooking up songs just for you! My music is made up of a dash of T-Rex, a pinch of Adam Sandler & gallons of a super-secret sauce.
