How many more do I need to make a dollar?

All of the time,

I’m counting my dimes,

Each one’s worth **10** single cents…

But I need a whole dollar,

To purchase great things,

Like a dog, a cat, and a fence…

I’m counting my **dimes,**

I’m counting by **tens,**

Starting with** ten, twenty, thirty,**

Three valuable **dimes,**

Are here in my jar,

One’s shiny,**2** others are dirty…**3** silver dimes are not nearly enough,

To buy my new cat a new collar,

The sign at the pet shop, clearly it read,

New collars cost one single dollar

That’s **100** cents, exactly **10 dimes,**

For the perfect great gift for my cat,

How many more **dimes** would I need to go find,

If I want to afford to buy that?
