The Lyrics

Gas price risin'
Each day the numbers climb
Not surprisin'
With Middle East unrest, a crime
Pushin' life's products,
Food and existence,
Beyond abilities to pay,
(Ohh) It ain't dimes..slip away..

Life's gone crazy,
And gettin' more so all the time
The future's hazy,
Lightyears beyond reason and rhyme
Pity our offspring,
How will they face it ?
A world of turmoil, worse each day
It ain't dimes..slip away..

Dollar's shrinkin'
And headed nowhere, but down
More ships sinkin'
Than what are comin' in..for folks around
Homes foreclosin'
Skies hang cloudy,
No sunshine fills the day,
(Ohh) It ain't dimes..slip away,

(No), it ain't dimes..slip awa-ay

putting in my two cents about your "dime" it was certainly worth a plugged nickel
