Lyrics to song Big Coin by The Beautiful South

(Heaton/Rotheray)
Big coin that you toss for heads or tails
Big coin that you let slip down the drain
Big coin didn't find where it landed
Big coin, big coin

Big coin that you dropped in the river
Little raft that took you across
Little hand that pulled it from the gutter
Big coin, big coin

It's a tiny little heart that
challenges the coin
But the coin has no beat or no breath
Big coin won't even leave you a love note
Big coin, big death

Big coin that you held and you treasured
Big coin that you can't
believe that you lost
Little kiss that helped you when you needed
Little kiss, big coin

Little heart that has no exchange rate
Big coin that could join the IMF
Little heart is only the
greedy 'cause it's poor
Little heart, big coin

It's a tiny little heart that
challenges the coin
But the coin has no north or no south
Big coin says it will never ever leave you
Big coin, big mouth

Little heart,
it ain't gold, it ain't silver
Little heart,
it ain't wasted on me
Little heart,
so much bigger than the coin
Little heart,
big guarantee
Little heart,
big guarantee

Little heart...

It's a tiny little heart that
challenges the coin
But the coin has no north or no south
Big coin says it will never ever leave you
Big coin, big mouth
