Lyrics

My mother gave me a penny To buy some candy I couldn't buy the candy It cost a nickel A nick nick nick nick nickel It cost a nickel A piece of penny candy, It cost a nickel. My mother gave me a nickel To buy a pickle I couldn't buy the pickle It cost a quarter! A quar quar quar quar quarter It cost a quarter A little nickel pickle It cost a quarter My mother gave me a quarter To buy some soda water I couldn't buy the water It cost a dollar! A do do do do dollar It cost a dollar For bubbles in the water It cost a dollar. My mother gave me a dollar so I wouldn't holler You should have heard me holler Cause what can you get with a dollar? Yes, everything is higher It's just outrageous Yes, everything is higher Except my mother's wages!
