Nickle and Dimin' Me to Death

(Lewis Franco & The Missing Cats)
I've got a gal she likes to spend the money
She treats it lightly but I don't think it's funny
I'm startin to wonder just who I'm with
My gal's nickle and dimin' me to death
 
Once she said she needed a peppermint
She asked me could I give her just fifteen cent
I said close your mouth if you've got bad breath
Honey you're nickle and dimin' me to death
 
A nickle or a dime man I don't mind
But put them together and what do I find?
I got fifteen cents less than I had
It's addin' up fast and it's makin' me mad
 
Then there was the time she bought a stick of gum
And damn if she didn't want another one
I said you're livin' like queen Elizabeth
Honey you're nickle and dimin' me to death
 
A nickle or a dime man I don't mind
But put them together and what do I find?
I got fifteen cents less than I had
It's addin' up fast and it's makin' me mad
