Oh you commandeered my love
It was useful for the time
Like whiskey and wine

Oh you set these flowers drying
Hung up while they're dying
But better left to lay

And oh my love won't you take a little of this hurt from me
And oh my love won't you share the burden of this love with me

And oh still I'm crushing pennies
They're weighing down my pockets
Useless in my debts

And oh laying down in my arms
If loving you's a crime
Lord knows I'll serve my time

And oh my love won't you take a little of this hurt from me
And oh my love won't you share the burden of this love with me

Oh you commandeered my love
It was useful for the time
Like whiskey and wine

Crushing Pennies Lyrics

Spring Standards – Crushing Pennies Lyrics

Oh you commandeered my love
It was useful for the time
Like whiskey and wine

Oh you set these flowers drying
Hung up while they're dying
But better left to lay

And oh my love won't you take a little of this hurt from me
And oh my love won't you share the burden of this love with me

And oh still I'm crushing pennies
They're weighing down my pockets
Useless in my debts

And oh laying down in my arms
If loving you's a crime
Lord knows I'll serve my time

And oh my love won't you take a little of this hurt from me
And oh my love won't you share the burden of this love with me

Oh you commandeered my love
It was useful for the time
Like whiskey and wine
