Nickel in the sky

Nickel in the sky, where are you
Nickel in the sky, where are you
My pockets are empty, my rents unpaid
Where are all those silver coins of yesterday

Nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel
Is it in your pocket
Nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel
Is it stored away
Nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel
Does someone else got it
Nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel, nickel
Does it do what you say

Nickel in the sky, where are you
Nickel in the sky, where are you
How many struggle to find your better way
All of us got to be told where to look for your treasures

And she says, hey you down there
You don't need to go far
I've been right here with you, spinning all along
Look deep inside, you've got all that you need
Don't believe what they sell you
They've turned silver into greed.
