Lyrics

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 They put in a nickel and I sing a little song Well, I don't mind that they're lucky But it seems that they always win And gamblin' 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 little song

They're only putting in a nickel and They want a dollar song They're only putting in a little to Get rid of a lot that's Wrong. Well I don't know so many things But I know what's been goin' 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 their nickel man And we'd sing a nickel song You know they're only putting in a nickel And they win a dollar song Oh, yeah, they're only putting in a little To get rid of a lot that's wrong Oh, they're only putting in a nickel To win a dollar song
