G C G D G
G C
Well, you know that I'm not a gambler, but I'm being gambled on
G D7 G
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
G C
Da-dn da da-dn da da-dn da da da, da-dn da da-dn da da da
G D7 G
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
 
G C
Well I don't mind that they're lucky, but it seems they always win
G D7 G
And gambling is illegal in the state of mind I'm in
G C
And if I had a nickel for each time that I've been put on
G D7 G
I would be their nickel man and I'd sing the nickel song
G C
Da-dn da da-dn da da-dn da da da, da-dn da da-dn da da da
G D7 G
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
 
Chorus
C G D7 G
They're only putting in a nickel, and they want a dollar song, oh
C G D7 G
They're only putting in a nickel, and they want a dollar song
 
G C
Well, you know I don't know so many things, but I know what's been going on
C G D7 G
We only put in a little to get rid of a lot that's wrong
G C
And if we had a nickel, for each time that we've been put on
G D G
We'd all be the nickel man and we sing a nickel song
 
Chorus
 
G C
Well, you know that I'm not a gambler, but I'm being gambled on
G D7 G
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song
G C
Da-dn da da-dn da da-dn da da da, da-dn da da-dn da da da
G D7 G
Da-dn da da da da-dn da da da, da-dn da da
 
Chorus
 
C G D7 G
They're only putting in a nickel, to win a dollar song
G C
Da-dn da da-dn da da-dn da da da, da-dn da da-dn da da da
C G D7 G
Oh they're only putting in a nickel, to win a dollar song
