Lyrics

  • WHEN WILL YOU TIRE OF THOSE CRAP-GAME CASINOS?
  • YOU’VE PLAYED EVERY DICE GAME, FROM VEGAS TO RENO
  • BUT YOU CAN’T FIGHT THIS COMPULSION
  • KEEP BELIEVING YOUR LUCK’S IN,
  • BUT IT’S GONE IN A TAILSPIN
  • COLD MONDAY MORNING ON THE EDGE OF THE CITY
  • YOU HAIL DOWN A RIDE TO ATLANTIC CITY
  • BUT THE MAN WANTS PAID BACK,
  • THEY’LL PUT A BULLET IN YOUR BACK
  • MAKE YOU FACE LOOK LIKE ROAD MAP
  • BOWED NOT BROKEN
  • THE SHARK’S NOT JOKING
  • YOU KEEP HOPING
  • THE SYSTEM CAN BE BEAT
  • A COLD AFTERNOON IN A TOWN FULL OF LOSERS
  • A SLOT-MACHINE HEAVEN, FULL OF RED-EYED JUICERS
  • BUT THE MAN WANTS PAID OFF
  • BEFORE HE STARTS ALL THE ROUGH STUFF
  • THEY’VE TAKEN THE GLOVES OFF
  • WHEN WILL YOU TIRE OF THOSE CRAP-GAME CASINOS?
  • YOU’VE PLAYED EVERY DICE GAME, FROM VEGAS TO RENO
  • STAKE IT ALL ON THAT ONE THROW
  • THEN YOU RUN OUT OF THE BACK DOOR,
  • ON THE RUN ONCE MORE.
