If I Didn’t Have a Dime — Gene Pitney

If I didn’t have a dime,
And I didn’t take the time
To play the jukebox
Whoa, Saturday night would have been
A sad and lonely night for me.

And if you weren’t standing there
Ruby lips and golden hair,
Beside the jukebox
Whoa, I’d have lost my chance
To hold you while you danced with me.

While the records turned and turned
We danced and learned,
our hearts had yearned for this.
Neath the moon we walked
and walked And talked
of love, and then . . . we kissed.

Now with every sweet caress
Oh my darlin’ how I blessed
That little jukebox.
Whoa, love songs that they sing
Wouldn’t mean a single thing
Even though you’re standing there
Ruby lips and golden hair
If I didn’t have a dime
And I didn’t take the time
To play the jukebox.
