Lyrics[]

Wakko:
I've got a ha'penny today!
Yakko and Dot:
He's got a ha'penny, hooray!
Dr. Scratchansniff
How did you dooz it?
Wakko:
All work and no play!
Dot:
He chopped wood
Yakko:
He chopped suey
Wakko:
I pitched horseshoes and hay
Yakko:
He milks jokes and cows for his fee
Wakko:
It was more than I thought it would be!
All:
An entire's full-year's salary!
Wakko:
And now I've got a ha'penny!
All:
He's got a ha'penny today!
He's got a ha'penny, hooray!
Yakko and Dot:
All those days of hard work
And here's your reward
Wakko:
Now there's nothing in this world
That I can't afford!
Dot:
You can buy any toys you pick!
Yakko:
And eat candy until you're sick!
Tristesse:
Plus a gourmet meal for monsieur
Yakko and Dot:
And still you'd never be poor!
All:
Because he's got a ha'penny today!
He's got a ha'penny, hooray!
Wakko:
Our water tower shanty we can finally repair!
I can even buy our brother some new underwear!
It's like I won the lottery!
All:
Because he's got a ha'penny!
Wakko:
I'll buy burgers at the butchers,
And blintzes at the bakers,
Groceries at the grocer's,
Season tickets for the Lakers!
Dr. Scratchansniff:
You can buy my new elixir!
Hello Nurse:
You can buy it by the bucket!
Dot:
There's just one little problem...
Yakko:
It's lousy, you should chuck it!
Wakko:
It's so hard to believe it really happened to me!
I'm goin' shoppin' with my ha'penny!
All:
He's going shopping with his ha'penny!
He's got a ha'penny today!
He's got a ha'penny, hooray!
With it, he could buy himself a tropical cruise!
Wakko:
But first, there's one important thing that I have to choose
My sister has been ailing quite a lot
Yakko:
We don't exactly know what she has got
All:
You plan to spend your ha'penny on what?
Wakko:
An operation to save my sister Dot!
All:
To cure whatever problems she's got!
An operation to save his sister, Dot!
Wakko:
It's a present to her from me
All because I've got a ha'penny!
All:
Because he's got a ha'penny!
In the village that's called Acme
He's going shopping
So let's get hopping
He's going shopping with his ha'penny!
