In For a Penny, In For a Pound

In For a Penny, In For a Pound

In For a Penny, In For a Pound 320 213 Jason Stadtlander

Driving the company with dollars in mind
Scrooge is your model, in him you will find
Stoke the fire, the coals are aligned
Screw the the staff the way you’ve designed

In for a penny, in for a pound
Enjoying your car and premium sound
Standing on bodies on top of the mound
As you’re in for a penny and in for a pound

She dreams of a goal that she’ll reach in time
Making her plans to weather the climb
Following the path and saving each dime
Until she has realized that it’s reached it’s prime

She’s in for a penny, in for a pound
Her pattern is planned ’til everything’s sound
Watching each movement, holding fast to the ground
She’s in for a penny and in for a pound

He stands with his team, a fight to be free
Ready to charge at his C.O.’s decree
Holding his gun, he’ll never flee
For truth is beheld, so Don’t Tread on Me

He’s in for a penny, in for a pound
Ready to defend ’til the battle is crowned
His word is his honor, forever renowned
Because he’s in for a penny, in for a pound

I stand in the booth, staring at options
I’ve read and I’ve researched and heard the concoctions
With four hundred million, it’s our chosen adoption?
A liar, a thief, a moron, a flake, endless corruption

We are in for a penny and in for a pound
No choice that I have makes me feel sound
Dear God help us all, not to be drowned
We’re in for a penny and in for a pound
