last four nickels lyrics – son seals

i took my last four nickels
put ’em into the telephone
tryin’ to call my baby
but she’s not at home

baby, what you tryin’ to do to me, girl?
i wanna show you girl
oh, the best things in life are free

i took my last hundred dollars
and i bought a gold ring
she said it ain’t got no diamond
it won’t mean a thing

hey baby, what you tryin’ to do to me?
i wanna show you girl
oh, the best things in life are free
aw

i took my last two hundred dollars
and i bought a cadillac
she said it sho’ looks good
but they wanna take it back

hey baby, what you tryin’ to do to me, girl?
i wanna show you girl
oh, the best things in life are free

i took my last four nickels
put ’em into the telephone
tryin’ to call my baby
but she’s not at home

hey baby, what you tryin’ to do to me?
i wanna show you girl
oh, the best things in life are free
oh
