A dime a dozen — Être légion. Ex. 'Movies like this are a dime a dozen.' Des films comme ça, il y en a à la pelle.

A dime a dozen — Literalmente «a diez centavos la docena»; quiere decir que sobra y está en todas partes, que la abundancia de la cosa es indicativa de su falta de valor, veracidad, mérito o cualquier cualidad deseable que varía de contexto en contexto. Aunque este dicho se origina en tiempos lejanos, hoy en día los diez centavos de dólar valen aún menos.

"A dime a dozen" in lyrics

Skip lines and don't pay (hey)
Player keep ya money i can buy my own drink
Up in the club (hey)
See men come a dime a dozen
So it don't mean nothing to me (hey)
Plus i ain't even worried bout ya homie

Rihanna - Raining Men

Take your seat and just listen up
Cause this rhyme with reason done too much
I'm a dime a dozen throw to sea, you'll have to wait and see
You can't have all of your outbreaks
If let me make my own mistakes

5 Seconds of Summer - Over and Out

I'm nouveau, Deco, Roman-Greco, Rococo, Barroco, be-bop, hip-hop, flip-flop
SOMEBODY STOP ME!
Pretty viridian faces like mine,
Don't come a dime a dozen - I stand out of the crowd!
Babe, when they made me, yeah, they broke the mold!
Wholesome and kind, staid and refined, totally out of my mind!

Cartoon Songs - The Mask

1, 2, 1, 2, 3, Turn the lights on.

Gucci, Fendi, Prada purses, purchasing them finer things
Men they come a dime a dozen, just give me them diamond rings
I'm into a lot of bling, Cadillac, Chanel and Coach
Fellas boast but they can't really handle my female approach

Fergie - Labels Or Love

I used to cry over heartbreak when I didn't know better,
One thing that my mama told me changed my life forever,
She said the man is a dime a dozen, baby girl don't cry for nothin',
little girl you should go and have fun,
and if you caught one you can catch another one

Karmin - Too Many Fish

Oh but I know where I'll stand
And you ain't woman enough to take my man

Women like you, they're a dime a dozen
You can buy 'em anywhere
For you to get to him I'd have to come over

Paramore - You Ain't Woman Enough

The fruit of love is no joke
men like you are a dime a dozen
men like you are a dime a dozen
the fruit of love is no joke

Giuseppe Manca - Brazen-Face

We’ve battled enough, now it’s the chill phase
I feel like I’m in my ghetto in the Milky Way
From up here, the world looks so small
No one there understands me – Amy Winehouse
Yeah, I want to fly, but I can’t do it
Every day, I’m drinking Red Bull, but the wings, no, they don’t grow

Fler - I'm Lifting Off

Boys, I love 'em
They come a dime a dozen
Boys, I leave 'em
They come and go like seasons

You're sleeping or maybe you're playing dead
I haven't heard anything from you
Images a dime a dozen, images on the escalator
pull me back, I curse them
I take them, I put them outside

La Grande Sophie - You're Sleeping

it's disgusting that she thinks she's got it all figured out,

but what she doesn't know is that to us she's just another one of them.
Girls like you are a dime a dozen.

Just leave, just leave!

Memphis May Fire - Jezebel

People all around, but I still walk alone
Nobody gonna miss me when I'm gone

Friends come a dime a dozen
I want my money back
'Cause I spent millions, matter o' fact trillions

If girls like you and girls like me
Are really a dime a dozen
Then why are we in such a high demand
My mother says it's just a shame

Found out by Till, they all went their way
He glanced at their slight dismay
The zany prank had exposed them all
For Hypocrites come a dime a dozen

Not a dime a dozen
Baby you’re my diam-diam-diamond
I know that we have both been places
