The Lyrics

In Las Vegas, you can cash your paycheck at any casino in the city. However, there is a hidden danger to this "convenience."
Sitting in a casino, she just cashed her paycheck,
She would not know that her finances would be such a wreck

She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her paycheck, says oh no!

Said "oh no, I can't even pay my bills"
She said "I was really drunk to the gills,"
She said "why did I take all those free drinks?"
She said "those young waitresses are such finks."
But unfortunately,

She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her paycheck, says oh no!

Said "oh no, I can't even pay my bills"
She said "I was really drunk to the gills,"
She said "why did I take all those free drinks?"
She said "those young waitresses are such finks."

I put the dime in the slot machine, and drank a few more beers
Put the dime in the slot machine and I sure felt better,
Put the dime in the slot machine, drink 'em all up,
Put the dime in the slot machine and try to pawn my jewelry."

Woo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.
Oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo-oo.

Sitting in a casino, she just cashed her paycheck,
She would not know that her finances would be such a wreck
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her money
She put the dime in the slot machine, she lost her paycheck, says oh no!

And said "oh no, I can't even pay my bills"
She said "I was really drunk to the gills,"
She said "why did I take all those free drinks?"
She said "those young waitresses are such finks."

I have to pawn my television, to pay my rent bill,
Have to pawn my diamond ring, to pay my light bill,
Have to solicit myself, in the streets at night,
When you run up big gambling debts, it is such a big fright.

Put the dime in the slot machine and lose your dignity.
Put the dime in the slot machine, you'll lose and feel worse.
Put the dime in the slot machine, greed will get you,
Put the dime in the slot machine, and Go to Gamblers Anonymous,

Woo--is there no way I can win?
She say, woo—Gambling is not a sin,
She say, well woo-- is there no way I can win?
She say woo--woo, Gambling is not a sin,
She say yow-- is there no way I can win?

She say wow—I have a player's card,
She said "Oh, no, is there no way I can win,"
She said, "Oh, no, is there no way I can win,"
She said, " Oh, no, is there no way I can win,"
She said, "I'm gonna try keno next.

Put the dime in the slot machine and lose your dignity.
Put the dime in the slot machine, you'll lose and feel worse.
Put the dime in the slot machine, greed will get you,
Put the dime in the slot machine, and Go to Gamblers Anonymous

Yes, Go to Gamblers Anonymous,
Go to Gamblers Anonymous, They'll tell you what to do.
Go to Gamblers Anonymous. They'll tell you what to do.
Go to Gamblers Anonymous. They'll tell you what to do.
Go to Gamblers Anonymous. They'll tell you what to do and
Go to Gamblers Anonymous. They'll tell you what to do.

Good parody. Really sheds some light on serious subject matter.

I loved the original "Doc-tah" Agree with Jon, gambiling can be a serious problem. Writing about the pain seems to help some us vent.
