The Lyrics

I pray, throw the dice, and kneel in the parking lot
I can't afford Vegas, so this is as good as I got
Craps is all I really know, so I bring my welfare check here to blow
I pray, throw the dice and kneel in the parking lot...

I got no credit, I got no shares of stock
All got is this roll of 20's here in my sock
Craps is all I really know, so I bring my welfare check here to blow
I pray, throw the dice and kneel in the parking lot...

What's goin' on, did someone load the dice, now?
What's to depend on if not an honest vice, now?
Craps is all I really know, so I bring my welfare check here to blow
I pray, throw the dice and kneel in the parking lot...

Hey, can't you spot me? I know my luck will turn...
In a week, maybe two, I'll have some more cash to burn...
Craps is all I really know, so I bring my welfare check here to blow
I pray, throw the dice and kneel in the parking lot...

The phrasing fits like OJ's glove. Very good job. I hope others will see this one. It's very hard to get noticed in the Am I Right crush on Monday, but this one was worth finding. Keep it up. 5-5-5

Is somebody pickin' on me again? (Note: Not the "Peanuts" character, but the guy from the Coasters' song.)

Leo - you've got a real deft touch with Joni Mitchell and her somewhat quirky pacing and I don't know if anyone here does it better. 5's here again.

Clever title, and the parody was good, too.
