The Lyrics

Definitions of penury: noun: a state of extreme poverty or destitution
I'm baffled at this place, I am
Stuck at this place I am, I am
I've tarried at a place that is a bore
Can't write par'dies like I did before
And every one has has been simply (simply)
About this stupid ,'witty' place by damn (by damn).
I'm runnin' on faith, or penury.
Penury or faith, by damn


Second verse same as the first


I'm baffled at this place, I am
Stuck at this place I am, I am
I've tarried at a place that is a bore
Can't write par'dies like I did before
And every one has has been simply (simply)
About this stupid ,'witty' place by damn (by damn).
I'm runnin' on faith, or penury.
Penury or faith, by damn


--------Lead Guitar--------


Ought to vary this verse. I AM!!
Varying this verse, I am, I am.
I've been buried in the window next door.
They are very much the little wh*res
And I am very much in penury (penury)
Until I can write free, then I'll un-cram (un-cram)
This is second one, in penury.
Plenty of good songs, there am.


P-E-NU-R-Y
Penury (Penury)
Penury (Penury)
Penury by faith I am, I am.
Penury by faith I am.


Yeah!
