The Lyrics

...the words of "penny lane" transposed into "benny and the jets"...
banker's...motorcar's a treasure
the kids are laughin' at him
wears no mac in rainy weather
it's surely gonna pour...tonight
you'll...hear the sound
the barber shows some pics, amusin'
of the heads, he's found

skies, so suburban and they're blue, you bet
folks come and go about
p-p-p-penny lane's the best
fireman is wieldin' an hourglass
his engine, he keeps really keen
he loves the queen, to boot
a portrait 'mong his loot
you know he owns a very clean machine
oh oh
penny lane's the best

hey nurse...poppies, you're displayin'
baby, you're no actress
but it seems like you are playin'
how our ears and eyes take in all these visions, strong
the fireman rushes in from the street
its nearly strange as this song

skies, so suburban and they're blue, you bet
folks come and go about
p-p-p-penny lane's the best
barber is shavin' his customers
their hair, you know he's gonna preen
the children can't stay mute
they're gonna mock and hoot
you know it seems to be a little mean
oh oh
penny lane's the best

penny...penny...penny
penny lane's the best...yes !

penny...penny...penny
penny lane's the best...yes
