Written and Sung by James Dunn.

The latest craze that puzzles me is well known to you all,
Tis seen at ferries, stations, and at every public hall;
In barrooms, streets and avenues, and every public spot,
This machine I believe the name is: Drop a nickel in the slot.
It produces almost anything, that any one desires,
As long as money drops inside, the machinery never tires;
You may have seen it long ago, perhaps you may have not.
This wonderful thing and they call it: Drop a nickel in the slot.

Then drop a nickel in the slot, and judge of your surprise,
And article jumps out, and you can scarce believe your eyes;
There's cigarettes of all kinds, and chewing gum, as well,
Just drop a nickel in the slot, what you'll get none can tell.
There's tobacco, candy, undershirts, suspenders, too, and socks,
Clothing new and second hand, and pills, too, by the box;
Whiskey punches and free lunches, freezing cold or hot;
No trouble to get, if you'll only drop a nickel in the slot.

Then drop a nickel in the slot and see what will come next,
If you don't get a house and lot you must not then get vexed;
There's castor oil and bathing suits, and bustles, too, they say,
Just drop a nickel in the slot and the band begins to play.
Just drop a nickel in the slot if you want a loving wife,
She'll be a comfort to you for the balance of your life;
And if you're fond of dressing, and very little money you've got,
If you want a suit of clothes, drop a nickel in the slot.
