Nine Nickles

Story Behind The Song

This short song is one of 26 songs from the composition "Phonics A to Z" representing the letter "N". Each little song has it's own melody and it's own set of words beginning with the letter in question.

If I had NINE NICKELS and five cents more,
I'd have fifty cents and I wouldn't be poor.
I'd take the NARROW lane NORTH to the store
And buy NAVY beans, NOODLES, and NUTS galore.

If I had NINE dimes and two NICKELS more,
I'd have a dollar and I wouldn't be poor.
I'd take the NARROW lane NORTH to the store
And buy NAVY beans, NECTARINES, and NUTS galore!

(N for Nuts!)
