lyrics

If I had a nickel
For every click on YouTube
So when you watched this song now
I’d make a buckaroo, dude
That’s what I would do, newb
Off that suckeroo rube
That’s what you would do too
Doo-doo, doo-doo

Every view on YouTube
I’d make another nickel
Take that to the bank, yeah
Every click’ll trickle
Drop it in the kitty
A nickel for my ditty
To make another vide-
Uh-oh-oh

Gimme a nickel
Gimme your hard-earned pay
Gimme a reason
To get through the working day

But I don’t own that YouTube
And it don’t work that way, pal
So if you add my song now
That kinda add don’t pay, pal
There’s a pretty penny
And someone’s makin’ plenty
And I ain’t gettin’ any
Nyah-nyah-nyah nyah-nyah

Gimme a nickel
Gimme your hard-earned pay
Give you a reason
To get through another day
Everybody’s got an angle
An edge to push, a break to wangle
Up your skirt or whatyacallit
There’s a straight shot to your wallet
Cyber ceo providers
Claim your content as free riders
All is fair if you desire it
Share the love and be a pirate
Yar

Gimme a nickel
Gimme your hard-earned pay
Gimme a reason
To get through the working day

Gimme a minute
Gimme a chance to say
Gimme a reason
For giving it all away
For giving it all away
For giving it all away
