[Verse 1]
C
Penelope Halfpenny sat on the desk
C
Then stretched and grinned
    G
She cracked her spine
G
And so we sinned
      Am              F
While Ruth in red and Beckett in blue
Am          F
Into the confessional flew
    Dm             G
And in that box, unlocked their dreams
      Dm         G
While lovers ran hands on nylon
Bb
Penelope, Penelope, Penelope Halfpenny
 
[Verse 2]
C
Penelope Halfpenny
C
Asked a great deal
C
Turned on her heel
            G
Through her squandered ambitions 

while marking time
Am C F Taught lessons to all adjacent to crime Dm From her days reporting
G
to Scotland Yard blotter
Dm G Who got who and who got what Dm G But none of that mattered, not one jot Bb To Penelope, Penelope, Penelope,
C
Penelope Halfpenny
[Bridge] Em Am D G Ruth in red tumbled from her bed
F G
although, I know
Em Am D G Beckett in blue, hung there bleeding
F
from the springs below
G Penelope, Penelope [Verse 3] C Penelope she came and went C We assumed that all her savings were spent G Her style of drama and her shape of face Am F Disappeared with the dot of a decimal place Dm G While Beckett in blue and Ruth in red Dm G Might for all I know be dead Dm G And to the church door both were driven Dm G Or could be somewhere, happily living Dm G Just in time to be forgiven Bb Penelope, Penelope, Penelope,
C N.C.
Penelope Halfpenny
