Lyrics

Three coins in the sewer
They fell down the drain
Through a hole in my pocket
Now I’m ??? again
They rolled down the pavement
Through the muck and the slime
Went plop in the water
One at a time
Stuck me hand through the grating
But me arm was too short
And as I tried to remove it
Some of me fingers got caught
And a crowd gathered 'round me
They thought I was insane
As I lay in the gutter
With me arm down the drain
Off came the drain cover
And I fell with a thud
Crawled out through a manhole
All covered in mud
Now me friends won’t come near me
Oh, ain’t that a shame
Since that day in the sewer
I just don’t smell the same
Since that day in the sewer
I just don’t smell the same
Can’t talk about throwing your money down the drain. I went after those pennies
down and all, urgently
