  • I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    And I said I need dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me

    Bad times are comin' and I reap what I don't sow
    Hey hey
    Well let me tell you somethin' all that glitters ain't gold
    Hey hey
    It's been a long old trouble long old troublesome road
    And I'm looking for somebody come and help me carry this load

    I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Well I don't know if I'm walking on solid ground
    'Cause everything around me is falling down
    And all I want is for someone to help me

    I had a job but the boss man let me go
    He said
    I'm sorry but I won't be needing your help no more
    I said
    Please mister boss man I need this job more than you know
    But he gave me my last paycheck and he sent me on out the door

    Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    Said I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    And I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
    Well I don't know if I'm walking on solid ground
    'Cause everything around me is crumbling down
    And all I want is for someone to help me

    What in the world am I gonna to do tomorrow
    Is there someone whose dollar that I can borrow
    Who can help me take away my sorrow
    Maybe it's inside the bottle
    Maybe it's inside the bottle
    I had some good old buddy his names is whiskey and wine
    Hey hey
    And for my good old buddy I spent my last dime
    Hey hey
    My wine is good to me it helps me pass the time
    And my good old buddy whiskey keeps me warmer than the sunshine
    Hey Hey
    Your mom of mayhem just a child has got his own
    Hey Hey
    If god has plans for me I hope it ain't, written in stone
    Hey Hey
    Because I've been working working myself down to the bone
    And I swear on grandpas grave I'll be paid when I come home
    Hey Hey

    Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    Said need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need
    Hey hey
    Well I need a dollar dollar, a dollar is what I need hey hey
    And if I share with you my story would you share your dollar with me
    Come on share your dollar with me
    Go ahead share your dollar with me
    Come on share your dollar give me your dollar
    Share your dollar with me
    Come on share your dollar with me Writer/s: Egbert Nathaniel Dawkins, Nicholas Anthony Movshon, Leon Marcus Michels, Jeffrey Scott Silverman
