The Lyrics

For those outside of the USA, Keno is a betting game in which players try to match numbers they select against those that are drawn randomly by computer and, displayed on a screen. The more numbers you pick, the more it costs but, the payout increases as well. That is, if you ever win. This is for all the losers out there.
Guy next to me just won four grand
I'd like to smack him with the back of my hand
Hate how he grins, his stupid dance
Hate how he smugly stuffs the bills in his pants

Oh, sinful game, I've never won
I'm getting old and I'll have nothing to get by on
So tell me when you're gonna let me win
I'm getting tired of always having to put in

Next lucky fool, comes skipping past
I'll stick my foot out, make him fall on his ass
What is this thing that I've become?
I never used to want to hurt no one

A simple game, I must be dumb
Somebody always takes the cash I had my eye on
I lose again, you gotta let me win
I'm getting tired of always having to put in

And if I ever win, I'd be Pacino
Rockin' in a keen old El Camino
I'd have lots of friends, maybe some bling
It's never me though

Someone else wins Keno

Someone else won Keno

Oh, sinful game, what have you done?
I'm getting old and I'll have nothing to get by on
So tell me when you're gonna let me win
I'm getting tired of always having to put in

And if I ever hit, I'd fly to Reno
Talk down legal 'tutes in a casino
Piss through every penny that I bring
It's not to be though
It's never me, no

Oh.................
No..... oh.....oh

This is how I'm spending every evening
It's never me, though

Someone else wins Keno

Someone else won Keno

Someone else won Keno

Hi Rick, good to see you :) I was attracted here because of the last line in your intro :) Good parody and how true. Nice pun on the artists as well!

Rick! I second the above! Always good to see you. How is that floozy neighbor doing? ;)

I gave my brother $5 to take to his Keno game a couple of weeks ago. I broke even - ha ha. Nice parody.
