Penny Drop

Lyrics

Every little car has to train
To pick the skin to use his brain
Got to be sharp, country wise
Must be ready to improvise

Clink, clink you?ll be Bob
Can?t you hear the penny drop
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Till you hear the penny clinking

Now come, come, come let me explain
Watch as an expert get?s me grain
Subtrude brilliance crystallized
Watch me Intellectualize

Clink, clink you?ll be Bob
Can?t you hear the penny drop
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Can you hear the penny clinking

We can not afford to wait
Please conceive and incubate
There?s no time for long debate
Use your paite concentrate

Kids today have got no vision
Never do enough revision
Watch far too much television
Have you came to some decision.

Every little fox boy has to train
To pick the skin to use his brain
Got to be sharp, country wise
Must be ready to improvise

Contemplation
Aspiration
Dedication
Recarnation

Try cerebral exercise
But you just might materialize

Clink, clink you?ll be Bob
Can you hear the penny drop

Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Thinking, thinking
Keep on thinking
Can you hear the penny clinking
