Buffalo Nickel

This song is by Shovels & Rope and appears on the album Little Seeds (2016).

I walked up to the counter with a buffalo nickel
Was gonna give him half, but instead he charged me triple
He said it's twenty on the money
What you're paying for it honey
I said man you must be joking
He said go ahead and try me
Now he's lookin' at me funny
And my nickel's laying sunny-side down

I hold out just to get myself a little bit corrected
A hot collar isn't any way to get yourself respected
And though I aim to be emphatic
There's an awful lot of static
'Cause you've got a lot of heart, but your moves are enigmatic
If you're acting too erratic it's my semi-automatic response

Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, hey
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
Workin' around each other

I got caught upset-looking like a little shadow
So mad 'cause I couldn't shake the noise out of the rattle
It was mean of me to say, but I meant it when I said
That I guess I'll do all the work, I guess you take all the credit
If you read well then you read it
I'll just be a dog and shed it all right

Hey, hey, hey, hey, yeah
Hey, hey, hey, hey
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
You and I (Workin' around each other)
Workin' around each other
