for two dimes, a quarter, and a nickel.

To find out how much I spent,

I counted them up cent by cent.

Each dime was worth ten, so I added both of them;

got thirty-five, forty-five, and then there was a nickel...

I added five, and paid fifty cents for the pickle.

I bought an ice cream in the summertime

with four pennies, three quarters, and a dime.

The ice cream lady looked in silence,

and then she counted up my cents.

She counted the three quarters - twenty-five,

The ten cents made eighty-five,

and the four pennies left made it eighty-nine.

So it was eighty-nine cents for the ice cream;

I ate until my shirt popped at the seam!
