A Penny for the Old Guy

from by Mark Lenover



Let’s throw a party for the hollow men
They aren’t themselves lately
They never listen
They never answer
They can’t remember
I can’t remember…
Can I get a penny for the old guy?

Let’s take collection for the hollow men
Now fill your hats, don’t be stingy
They’re at the river
waiting together
They can’t remember
I can’t remember…
Can I get penny for the old guy?
