The Lyrics

Once Upon A Dime
Would make a phone call in a booth,
Buy a candy bar,
Pay for a movie show
But, that was Once Upon A Dime
Quite some time ago

Once Upon A Dime
Would buy a kid a comic book,
Pay for pinball games,
Newspapers on the lawn
But, that was Once Upon A Dime
Now that time is gone...

Thru the glass, shifting sands pile high
Hours trickle years,
Like cotton clouds, tomorrows fly
Ice cream cones,
A double nickel piece of pie
Where did they go?

Once Upon A Dime
We had a happy ten cent world,
Life was all small change
Too bad that Once Upon A Dime
Never comes again...

Too bad that Once Upon A Dime
Never comes again...

Nice! I know you're nostalgic for the good old days, but you may be pleased to learn your dime has inflated to $555!
