    The first time I saw you
    Oh, you looked so fine
    And I had a feeling
    One day you'd be mine
    Honey you came along and captured my heart
    Now my love is somewhere lost in your kiss
    When I'm all alone it's you that I miss
    Girl a love like yours is hard to resist
    Oh, Oh, Ooh, Ooh, Oh

    Penny lover, my love's on fire
    Penny lover, you're my one desire
    Tell me baby could this be true
    That I could need someone, like I need you

    Nights warm and tender
    Lying next to you
    Girl I surrender
    Oh, what more can I do
    I've spent all of my life in search of your love
    Now there's one more thing I'd like to say
    Don't you ever take your sweet love away
    Girl I'll do anything, just please stay
    Oh, Oh

    I don't understand it, Oh what's come over me
    But I'm not gonna worry, no not anymore
    'Cause when a man's in love, he's only got one story
    That's why my love is somewhere lost in your kiss
    When I'm lost and alone it's you that I miss
    With a love like yours, it's hard to resist
    Ooh, Ooh, Oh

    Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
    Penny lover, don't you make me cry (don't you make me cry baby)
    Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
    Penny lover, don't you make me cry (Oh penny baby)
    Penny lover, don't you walk on by (don't you walk on by)
    I remember the first time I saw you baby
    Penny lover, don't you make me cry
    You had the look in your eye, you had the look in your eye, Yeah, Yeah
    Oh Penny (Penny lover)
    Oh penny baby Writer/s: BRENDA HARVEY-RICHIE, LIONEL RICHIE
