I'm beginning the next song

Aowh, play the fucking song

Penny's just the sort of girl your mother ought to meet
She's quiet and polite and responsive on her feet
When she sees a pensioner she'll sacrifice her seat
And if you call her pretty she'll go rose in her cheeks
But this is just the surface though, behind her hidden depths
When she goes out at night, she takes a ... breath
Pulls on a balaclava and a pair of ... tights
When the world is ... she goes out into the night
'Cause Penny
Has a secret
Iden-ti-ty

She washes all the moonlight ... mucky little patches
She washes ... bucket
If you're window's grimy, Penny will not ...
... warm
Penny's undistractable, she has a job to do
Soapy water's ... see through and through
...
She could be your daughter but up a ladder she's a stranger
'Cause Penny
Has a secret
Iden-ti-ty
'Cause Penny
Is a vigilante window-cleaner now

...
...
...
...
...
But she washes windows in the middle of the night
...
...
She's half way up a ladder, perched half way up a wall

I tell you ladies and gentlemen, if you could see the things she can see
...
...
...
These are the things that Penny sees
'Cause Penny
Is a vigilante window-cleaner now

This is the part of the song
Where Mister Andy Raven our special extra-special special extra guest violinist
Will explain his very own squeegee method
With a violin


When the morning comes in a sunny sunlight
When everything is clear and clean and everything is bright
Looking out their windows people wonder with a frown
Just who or what is making such a difference to their ...
... all up and down the tube
... if only someone knew
...
Some have had their windows clean and some of them do not

You know what they say
You can clean half the people all the time
But you can't clean all the people half the time
...

Penny never says a thing, she tucks her sponge away
And does the things that people do to get her through the day
Working in the library ...
Dreaming all the while of her vigilante spree
'Cause Penny
Has a secret
Iden-ti-ty
'Cause Penny
Is a vigilante window-cleaner now

...
In her soul she's doing good by turning hearts of oak
She's keeping windows tidy for the common man or bloke
She's keeping Britain tidy for the conscientious folk
There's conscientious folk
There's conscientious folk
She's keeping Britain tidy
Heh-heh-heh
Turned out nice again
