Nickels And Dimes

Social Distortion

I'm a Cadillac tramp at the end of his road
A swap meet rat who's sitting on gold, yeah baby
I'm a guitar gangster without a tune
I'm a baseball bat just waiting to swing
Your loan-shark friend with the broken knees, yeah baby
I'm a penthouse pauper with nothhing to lose

I'm chasing nickels and dimes
The rest of the world passes me by
I'm just wasting my time
I'm just sitting here wondering why

I'm the high roller creep that's in too deep
With the slicked-back hair and the silver teeth, yeah baby
I'm a beggin' for a king with a stolen crown
I'm a jailhouse poet, a genius, a fool
I'm the pimp who's lost his cool, yeah baby
Like a first class taste in a second class town

I'm chasing nickels and dimes
The rest of the world passes me by
I'm just wasting my time
I'm just sitting here wondering why

I'm a loaded gun pointed at the mirror
A drugstore cowboy whose end is near, yeah baby
I'm a big time skater with broken down dreams
I'm a derelict rebel without a cause
I ain't the cat with the sharpest claws, no baby
'cause sometimes life just ain't what it seems

I'm chasing nickels and dimes
The rest of the world passes me by
I'm just wasting my time
I'm just sitting here wondering why
I'm just sitting here wondering why
And just like you, I'm wondering why
