Spare a penny for the man who fought in two world wars
Spare a penny for the church and the religious cause
I am a generous man, but I'm feeling the pinch
I give you all I can, but you're leaving me skint

Spare a penny for our friends in darkest Africa
Spare a penny for the lands of Viet Nam
I've bought your little gifts, not forgetting your flags
Your poppies of good will just reduce me to rags

I hide in cupboards, under stairs
To save my face from coldest [glare / lead]
My kids are scared to go to school
They're frightened of the money wolves

I am a generous man, but I'm feeling the pinch
I give you all I can, but you're leaving me skint
