"Betcha Nickel" as written by Chick Webb and Ella Fitzgerald....
I betcha, a nickel,
I bet you I win.
I betcha, a nickel
That you will give in.

What's a matter honey?
'Fraid you'll lose?
Do what you wanna,
And say what you choose.

I still betcha, a nickel,
That you will be mine.
I betcha, a nickel,
Even raise it a dime.

I always win my money;
You can bet on that.
I always take a tip,
And keep it under my hat.

You've got yourself, to yourself.
Come on, get off that shelf.
You can fool some of the people, some of the time,
But you can't fool all the people, all of the time.

That's why I betcha, a nickel,
That you will be mine.
I betcha, you'll sign on, the dotted line.
I don't see no sense in wasting all this time,
'Cause whatever you bet, your bet is gonna be mine.

You've got yourself, to yourself.
Come on, get off that shelf.
You can fool some of the people, some of the time,
But you can't fool all the people, all of the time.

(we betcha, a penny, we ain't got a dime)
Say that ain't no money, you're wastin' my time.
I don't see no sense in all this rhythm, and rhyme.
'Cause whatever you bet, your bet is gonna be mine.
