The Lyrics

i picked up the dice
they tumbled around a lot
should i keep the fours ?...the threes ?
or that single one dot ?

does my yahtzee have to go ?
its fifty points, you've lost, if its done
i picked up the dice
gave it another shot

i'd kept back the threes
and the other trio, freed 'em
then they started leapin'
i couldn't hardly wait just to see 'em

does my yahtzee have to go ?
its fifty points, you've lost, if its done
i picked up the dice
gave it another shot

hey nonny nonny !
i got another pair of threes
i have set an example
of how to play this game with ease
whee !

does my yahtzee have to go ?
its fifty points, you've lost, if its done
i picked up the dice
gave it another shot

what delight !
i saw that last die land
and i then bellowed, "YAHTZEE ! "
took away that last hand

i love yahtzees, don't you know
its fifty points, you get, when its done
i picked up the dice
gave it another shot
i picked up the dice
gave it another shot
picked up the dice
gave it another shot
ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

You come up with the most out-there themes, Al....this is a classic Rhodes "something great made out of something small" parody. Bravo...555

if I were nonny, I would be mightily impressed with your Yahtzee skills, alvin - assuming this is a true story, of course - 555 (deserves a 66666)

Well, let's see - You picked up your bonus in the Upper Half...72 there, that's a helluva score...plus the 35 bonus points...that equals 107. 3kd, 4kd, Full house, small & Large straights, Yahtzee and a high score in Chance. Comes to...ummm....226 on the Lower Half....That's a Grand Total of 333...of course, I don't really know how to play this game...nope...never touched the stuff...but what box do I put this "555" in ? ~ ~ ~
