Melanie

Melanie is a feminine given name derived from the Greek μελανία (melania), "blackness" and that from μέλας (melas), meaning "dark". Borne in its Latin form by two saints: Melania the Elder and her grand-daughter Melania the Younger, the name was introduced to England by the Normans in its French form Melanie. However the name only became common in English usage in the 1930s due to the popularity of Margaret Mitchell's 1936 novel Gone with the Wind and its 1939 filmation, as one of the novel's main characters was named Melanie Hamilton.

Well you know that I'm not a gambler 
But I'm being gambled on 
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song 
Da-da-da-da 
They put in a nickel and I sing a little song 
 
Well, I don't mind that they're lucky 
But it seems that they always win 
And gamblin' is illegal in the state of mind I'm in 
And if I had a nickel for each time that 
I've been put on 
I would be their nickel man 
And I'd sing a little song 
 
They're only putting in a nickel and 
They want a dollar song 
They're only putting in a little to 
Get rid of a lot that's 
Wrong. 
 
Well I don't know so many things 
But I know what's been goin' on 
We're only putting in a little 
To get rid of a lot that's wrong 
And if we had a nickel for each time that 
We've been put on 
We'd all be their nickel man 
And we'd sing a nickel song 

You know they're only putting in a nickel 
And they win a dollar song 
Oh, yeah, they're only putting in a little 
To get rid of a lot that's wrong 
Oh, they're only putting in a nickel 
To win a dollar song
