and old song by sinatra

issued from my radio
i started singing with him
and began to tap my toe
he mentioned it was pennies
that were pouring on the ground
and you could make a fortune
if you took a look around
they made them up in heaven
tossed them from the pearly gates
fashioned from some copper mines
where minting emanates
i used to hear that pennies
dropping from the empire state
could cause a mean concussion
if they landed on your pate
but pennies dropped from heaven ?
they could kill you where you stood
just like a little meteor
that doesn't sound too good
but over there in england
it's more dangerous, it sounds
for it's not raining pennies, there
i hear it's raining pounds
