The Lyrics

I'm not the gambling type....
Hey Man! Boy those slots hypnotize
Hey Man! I just rolled a "snake-eyes"
Hey Man! I don't think I've made a dent
This flashy bright casino
Has taken each cent

Hey Man! My paycheck is gone
Hey Man! Got nothing to pawn
Hey Man! Well, it's a total butt-ram
I thought that I was up a thousand.
And then I....

Oh, they cleaned me out, man
All I've left is this bus ticket
I'm leaving "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, they've reamed me out, man
And they told me where to stick it
I'm done in "lose-a-bet" city
Goodbye cash......in a flash

Hey Man! Oh Henry, You're now my lunch today
Hey Man! It's all I can now munch, or pay
Hey Man! Guess I crashed and burned
I came here for some fun and am I dumb
Am I dumb!

Oh, they cleaned me out, man
All I've left is this bus ticket
I'm leaving "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, they've reamed me out, man
And they told me where to stick it
I'm done in "lose-a-bet" city
Goodbye cash......in a flash

Oh hit me!

Oh, they crapped me out, man
All I've left is this bus ticket
I'm screwed in "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, they've tapped me out, man
And they told me where to stick it
I lost in "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, they cleaned me out, man
All I've left is this bus ticket
I'm leaving "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, they've reamed me out, man
And they told me where to stick it
I'm done in "lose-a-bet" city
Goodbye dough......watched it go!

Ah, "lose-a-bet" city, ah, "lose-a-bet" city
Blackjack in "lose-a-bet" city, odds stacked in "lose-a-bet" city
Ow, "lose-a-bet" city Yow! "lose-a-bet" city
Why me? "lose-a-bet" city Why me? "lose-a-bet" city

Ohhhh, those casinos blow!

"Lose-a-bet" city "lose-a-bet" city
Not quite right
That "lose-a-bet" city
Bad night
At "lose-a-bet" city, at "lose-a-bet" city
Bite me, "lose-a-bet" city
Wiped me, "lose-a-bet" city
Oh, I'm in debt!

Good job. Strange, you can sing the chorus to YMCA as well (Young Man...Hey Man!). I gamble...rarely...enough to get the song, but not enough to lose the house (Vegas or Atlantic City maybe once a year).
