Dimes in The Jar Submit Correct Lyrics

Don't you know, baby?
The faster you get there
The longer it takes you to leave
And ain't it so

That the nicer they treat you
The more they're inclined to deceive
So it goes, baby, I'm here for the long run
They told me to come as you are

I found a good one
She looks like she could run
She looks like a good one so far
Never got handed a dollar by no one
I earned every dime in the jar

She wants to catch you
And she wants to fetch you
And she wants to wrap you all up
Into a bundle, if you make a bundle
Of cash, you're just plain outta luck

It starts out dandy
And she'll give you candy
But that's only part of the trap
She gets an attorney

And his name is Bernie
And he'll string you up like a cat
Never got handed a dollar by no one
I earned every dime just like that

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin'
From dive bar to bar

Every dime in the jar comes
From diggin' and scratchin'
And stealin' the gold
From the stars

Please, understand me
Ain't nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin'
From dive bar to bar
Oh yeah

Every dime in the jar comes from
From diggin' and scratchin'
And stealin' the gold
From the stars

Please, understand me
Ain't nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar

When I was a young boy
My daddy had nothin'
Momma would save every dime
Now mommas have nannies
And house cleaning spannies

And daddies will lose every time
They don't save dimes now
Not even dollars
They don't save nothin' you earn

Now I don't know how
I'm sure in the end now
There's some place
Where they gonna burn

Never got handed a dollar
By no one and here is
The lesson I learned

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin'
From dive bar to bar

Every dime in the jar comes
From diggin' and scratchin'
And stealin' the gold
From the stars

Every dime in the jar
Comes from runnin'
From dive bar to bar
Oh yeah

Every dime in the jar comes
From diggin' and scratchin'
And stealin' the gold
From the stars

Please, understand me
Ain't nobody handing me
Dimes that I keep in the jar

Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar
Dimes that I keep in the jar
