Two for a nickel . . .

Ever since I first heard the Chili Peppers cover the Red Hots song, I thought the line was “Two for a nickel, three for a dime” which makes no sense. Why would I buy a dime’s worth of red hots if I’m going to get less than two nickel’s worth?

After around 15 years, I Googled the lyrics and it turns out it’s “two for a nickel, FIVE for a dime.” Now that makes sense.

Now where I can get some red hots for 5 for a dime these days?
