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
Dad da dad da dad da da da
Dadn da dad da da da
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song

Well I don’t mind that they’re lucky, 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 the nickel man and I’d sing a nickel song

You know, hey’re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Oh, they’re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song

Well, you know I know I don’t know so many things
But I know what’s been going on
We’re only putting in a little 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’d all be the nickel man and we’d sing a nickel song, you know

They’re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Oh, they’re only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song

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
Dad da dad da dad da da da
Dadn da dad da da da
Dad da dad da da da, Da da dad da da da

Da da da da dadn da da da
Da da da da dad da da da
Da da da da dad da da da
Da da da da dad da da da

They’re only putting in a nickel and they want a dollar song
We’re only putting in a little to get rid of a lot.
They’re only putting in a nickel and they want a dollar song
