The thing about 'gimme' (="give me") is that it often used as a noun, especially in sports commentaries. Here's a possible explanation.
A child who wants something but doesn't have the language to 'dress' up the request in socially acceptable indirection, will just point and say 'gimme'. It doesn't take a growing child long to learn that this isn't an infallible strategy! But for a time, the child thinks that 'gimme' is a simple way of getting something they want.
Sports commentators often say that a certain or sure or easy job is 'a gimme'. It's possible that if you've heard 'gimme' in a song lyric, it's an extension of this usage.

Afterthought. I think I can be a bit more specific than just 'sports commentators' (originally, that is - "a gimme" is much more widely used now). I think the root was strokeplay golf (that's the sort where players win hole by hole, rather than adding up their total as they go - 'matchplay').
When a player's ball was near enough to the hole, he would say 'Will you give me that?" Hence a near-enough certainty became known as a gimme.
