Don't take any wooden nickles
stack all your quarters in a row
And when it rains it only trickles
just in case you didn't know.
If I had only had a dollar
for every time I heard you say
Please, you don't have to holler
I would have a nice pay day.
Here's a penny for your thoughts
they ain't worth a gosh darn dime
You can take them and get lost
in line at the bank next time.
A candy bar and a coca cola
use to cost me fifty cents
Now don't you play me your viola
just toss me some breath mints.
If I had only had a skill
I'd work in wood or pottery
Do you have me in your will
for I'll never win a lottery.
