The Five Pennies

by Danny Kaye

Danny Kaye (born David Daniel Kaminsky; 18 January 1913 – 3 March 1987) was a celebrated American actor, singer, dancer, and comedian. His best known performances featured physical comedy, idiosyncratic pantomimes, and rapid-fire nonsense songs.




This little penny is to wish on 
And make your wishes come true 
This little penny is to dream on 
Dream of all you can do 

This little penny is a dancing penny 
See how it glitters and it glows 
Bright as a whistle 
Light as a thistle 

Quick, quick as a wink 
Up on it's twinkling toes 
This little penny is to laugh on 
To see that tears never fall 

This this little penny 
Is the last little penny 
Most important of all 
For this penny is to love on 

And where love is, heaven is there 
So with just five pennies, if they're these five pennies 
You'll be a millionaire 
For this penny is to love on 

And where love is, heaven is there 
So with just five pennies, if they're these five pennies 
You'll be a millionaire
