This song is performed by Cake and appears on the album Pressure Chief (2004).
In the brown shag carpet of a cheap motel
In the dark and dusty corner by the TV shelf
Is a small reminder of a simpler time
When a crumpled up pair of trousers lost a brand new dime
Well you ask me how I made it through and how my mint condition could belong to you
When I'm on the ground I roll through town
I'm a president you don't remember getting kicked around
I'm a dime , I'm fine
And I shine I'm freshly minted
I am determined not to be dented
By a car or by a plane or anything not yet invented...

I'm a dime , I'm fine
And I shine
In the hiss and rumble of the freeway sounds
As the afternoon commuters drive their cars around
There's a ringle jingle near the underpass
There's a sparkle near the fast food garbage and roadside trash
I'm a dime, I'm fine
And I shine I'm freshly minted
I'm silver-plated, I'm underrated
You won't even pick me up because I'm not enough for a local phone call...

I'm a dime , I'm fine
And I shine
I'm a dime, I'm fine
And I shine
I'm a dime, I'm fine
And I shine
