Pennies in My Pockets
(adding 5+5)

I have pockets on my pants,
And pennies in my pockets,
Pretty pennies in the pockets,
Of my
purple penny pants...
I need to have
10 pennies,
To do the penny dance,
So I want to have
10 pennies,
In the pockets of my pants...

One pocket in my pants,
5 pretty pennies,
How many do I need,
To do the penny dance?

5 more pennies?
Join me for the dance,
They're in the other pocket,
Of my
purple penny pants!!!
