Mike Cooley – 3 Dimes Down Lyrics

[Spoken Intro]
I'm not gonna tell you what I was thinking about just now

[Verse 1]
It was a straight shot
All it took was luck to not get caught
I laid three dimes down and the machine wanted twenty-five cents
In the back seat, her and a friend
One out the window and the other on the other end
One belt loop away from Sunday night's news

[Verse 2]
If the part about being who he was didn't help Tom get loose
What's a guy without a T. gonna get? Totally screwed
While chicken wing puke eats the candy apple red off his Corvette

Three dimes down and twenty-five cents
Shy of a slice of the Doublemint Twins
Come back baby, rock-n-roll never forgets

[Verse 3]
So you're a little bit older and a lot less bolder than you used to be
You used to shake 'em down and now you stop and think about your dignity
So sweet sixteen staring thirty-one
Feel a little tired when the workday's done
All you gotta do is get up and get it, you're next
You're in a fix
[Spoken Outro]
Okay, that's what I was thinking. I can't believe it worked. Of course it worked
