lyrics

Once in my favorite diner, I noticed on the floor
a shiny dime which I picked up, and then looked 'round for more.
It was noticed by my neighbor who sat there next to me.
He mentioned it and praised me highly for my industry.
We got to talking, and he seemed a very pleasant guy.
I told him of my job and how I hated it and why.
He was quite sympathetic, and he asked me to invest
in enterprises that he ran, and I did, for a test.
My money quickly doubled, then it tripled. I was in.
My whole life's savings, and then some more, I handed it to him.
Then one day when I called him there's no answer on the line.
He'd gone completely missing with the money that was mine.
And so, to keep myself from going quickly to default,
I started taking money from my employer's bank vault.

Now you know that every day we make decisions big and small.
To sleep late, throw a man a buck, or give a friend a call.
But these choices' effects multiply all of the goddamn time,
And that's why I'm in prison now, for picking up a dime.
