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
