Bad Penny

About this Song:

Moira: What is it like to be a prostitute who falls in love with a regular client – someone who uses her for sex while he imagines he’s with a different girl? He doesn’t think of the prostitute as a person. She’s a commodity. He doesn’t even know she exists.

Siobhan: After listening to the lyrics I immediately thought about Tainted Love (Soft Cell)  so I included quotes of the song. Also I want to draw attention the the Motown Strings + Bass to drag the hat for Mr. Norman Whitfield

Lyrics:

BAD PENNY

If I could believe you’d love me
I would wait my turn
But you don’t even see me
And that’s a lesson I’ve had to learn

So put your money on the table
And get on for the ride
Don’t want to hear about your troubles
I can’t be on your side

Where is my soul, if I have one?
Don’t think it’s ever seen the sun
I’ve had to wipe my heart clean of all its dreams
And forget the girl I might have been

So put your money on the table
And get on for the ride
Don’t want to hear about the girl you love
I still have some pride

If I could believe you’d love me
I might change my mind
But you don’t even see me
And it’s not love that makes you blind

You don’t even see me
And it’s not love that makes you …

Blind
