Well, you know that I'm not a gambler
But I' m being gambled on
They put in a nickel
And I sing a little song

Da da da da da da da da da da
They just put in a nickel
And I sing a little song

Well I don' t mind that their luck
But it seems like they always win
And gambling is illegal
In the state of mind I' m in
And if I had a nickel
For each time that I' ve been put on
I would be their nickel man
And I' d sing a nickel song

They' are only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Ya they' are only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song

Well I don' t know so many things
But I know what' s been going on
With only putting in a little tune
To get rid of a lot that' s wrong
And if we had a nickel
For each time That we' ve been put on
We'll all be their nickel man
And we' d sing a nickel song

They' re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Ya, they' re only putting in a little
To get rid of a lot that's wrong

Da da da da da da da da da da

They' re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Da da da da da da da da da da
They' re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Da da da da da da da da da da
Da da da da da da da da da da
