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 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 check 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!

Encore

Cast:
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!

Reprise

All:
He's got two ha'pennies today!
He's got two ha'pennies, hooray!
No more worries or cares
While it may sound cliché,
It's the answer to our prayers
And no more taxes to pay!
Now it's back to the town of Acme
To go shopping with his whole penny!
