# Get Your Money Right Song

If you are teaching about coins and their value, you need this song in your lesson plan ASAP! Blazer Fresh has created a fun song that will stick in kiddos’ heads like an earworm and help them remember the value of a penny, nickel, dime, and quarter. They also sneak in some addition and subtraction practice that fits with the entire standard (see below for CCSS alignment). Play this song at the start of every lesson for your unit on money and watch your class make cents of this concept in no time! The lyrics are below the video.

## Lyrics

Blazer Fresh!
Nutcracker
Dollars. To the. Sky!

Let’s get it!

Ya better getcha money right,
Yeah getcha getcha money right!
Ya better getcha money right,
yeah getcha getcha money right!
Watch the green like a traffic light
So you can getcha money right,
Get a million like a megabyte
yo getcha money right!

Pennies nickels and dimes are lookin mighty FOYNE!

A Penny’s one cent, A nickel has five
A dime’s ten cents, And a quarter’s twenty five
When it adds up to a hundred cents
you gotta dolla yo
I got all of my money right it’s like I won the lotto yo

I have five pennies that adds up to a nickel
But I need 10 nickels, for a 50 cent pickle
If I have 2 nickels, that’s as much as a dime
50 dimes is 5 dollars, yo I HIT THE BIG TIME

Lincoln on the penny is the only one that’s brown
But Tom, FDR, and George got the silver down

Ya better getcha money right,
Yeah getcha getcha money right!
Ya better getcha money right,
yeah getcha getcha money right!
Watch the green like a traffic light
So you can getcha money right,
Get a million like a megabyte
yo getcha money right!

I think I’m getting better at STACKIN ALL THIS CHEDDAR

A Stack of 25 pennies is worth a quarter
A stack of 5 nickels, same amount but it’s shorter
10 dimes or 4 Quarters are worth a dollar bill
I got my money right, yo I got mad financial skill

Yo I need buy deodorant for my armpit (ew!)
Three dollars fifty cents, I would like to purchase it
I got four dollars so how much do I get back?
50 cents of change man! Put that in your back pack!

Lincoln on the penny is the only one that’s brown
But Tom, FDR, and George got the silver down

Ya better getcha money right,
Yeah getcha getcha money right!
Ya better getcha money right,
yeah getcha getcha money right!
Watch the green like a traffic light
So you can getcha money right,
Get a million like a megabyte
yo getcha money right!

Ya better getcha money right,
Yeah getcha getcha money right!
Ya better getcha money right,
yeah getcha getcha money right!
Watch the green like a traffic light
So you can getcha money right,
Get a million like a megabyte
yo getcha money right!

How much is a penny yo?
ONE CENT
How much is nickel though?
FIVE CENTS
How much is a dime worth?
TEN CENTS

Four quarters and some sweet rhymes!
