Deze single was de opvolger van Thanks For The Memory en strandde in de Tipparade. De opvolger van In For A Penny was Let's Call It Quits en haalde zelfs de Tipparade niet, waarna in Nederland voor Slade een stilte van vijf jaren volgde, voordat er weer successen werden behaald.

De titel In For A Penny wijst naar het Engelse spreekwoord "In for a penny, in for a pound", ofwel "wie a zegt, moet ook b zeggen". Hiermee wil men zeggen dat je, als je eenmaal iets bent begonnen, je tot het eind moet volhouden en niet voortijdig dient te stoppen.

Het opmerkelijke aan In For A Penny is dat het de enige track in de carrière van Slade is waarin een accordeon wordt bespeeld.

Songtekst

Do you remember the night in September
The two of us laid in the hay.
Do you remember the day in December
And how we got carried away.

[chorus]:
If you're in for a penny you gotta be in for a pound
'Cos over and over you played me that old fashioned sound
Look around

Did you discover that ooh I'm a lover
When we took a tumble or two
Were you surprised when you tried me for size
You'd bit off more than you could chew.

If you're in for a penny you gotta be in for a pound
'Cos over and over you played me that old fashioned sound
So look around
Play the refrain, play it an' play it an' play it again.

Oh Do you remember the night I surrendered
You wanted to paint me in oils
Ooh you were tender, well do you remember
The sleepers could hear me for miles.

If you're in for a penny you gotta be in for a pound
'Cos over and over you played me that old fashioned sound
So look around
Play the refrain, play it an' play it an' play it again.
