  • Once I built a railroad, made it run
    Made it race against time
    Once I built a rairoad, now it's done
    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    Once I built a tower to the sun
    Brick and rivet and lime
    Once I built a tower, now it's done
    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
    Full of that yankee Doodle De dumb
    Half a million boots went slogging through hell
    I was the kid with the drum

    Say don't you remember, they called me Al
    It was Al all the time
    Say don't you remember, I'm your pal
    Buddy, can you spare a dime?

    Once I built a railroad, made it run
    Made it race against time
    Once I built a rairoad, now it's done
    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    Once I built a tower to the sun
    Brick and rivet and lime
    Once I built a tower, now it's done
    Brother, can you spare a dime?

    Once in khaki suits, gee, we looked swell
    Full of that yankee doodle de dumb
    Half a million boots went slogging through hell
    I was the kid with the drum

    Say don't you remember, they called me Al
    It was Al all the time
    Say don't you remember, I'm your pal
    Buddy, can you spare a dime?
