NICKEL SONG
*with refrain from "MUSIC! MUSIC! MUSIC!"

* Put another nickel in
In the nickelodeon
All I ever want from you is music

I'll do anything for you anything you want me to
All I ever, all I ever wanted was music

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

In the nickelodeon
All I ever, all I ever, wanted was music

Well I don't mind that
They're lucky but it seems like they always win
And gambling 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

You know they're only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song, oh
They're only putting in a nickel
And they want a dollar song

Oh yeah, all I ever wanted was the music

I'll do anything for you anything you want me to
All I ever all I ever wanted was music sweet music

They're only puttin' in a nickel
To get rid of a lot that's wrong
Oh you know they're only puttin' in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
They're only puttin' in a nickel
And they want a dollar song
Yeah...

    I love the way it is satirical, whimsical and ironical; entertaining in the same way as good dialogue in a movie; after all, they do put in a nickel for a song and, in this case, they literally get a nickel song; i especially like the way it ties in with music, music, music; wonderful melody, great everything!
