The Lyrics

it is certain i must scrounge
for my income has fell
i've played lotto for diversion
it has turned into my hell
a lotta money ridin' on it every week
i'm on, i'd say, lately...a losin' streak
friends say, "ya better calm down..
you know gamblin' so much, is a shame
you're to blame and its kinda lame
it isn't like poker...skills are involved in that game
hey buddy...you blow lots of cash
played around with lotto...now your life is trashed"
then i started thinkin'...i am crazed on lotteries

it takes a pretty good chunk
its cuts into my groceries
i once was a rich 'un
i'm livin' now in poverty
i try and i try, but my luck musta went
i've had all my tickets losin'...i can't pay my rent
i fall for the teasin'...i am crazed on lotteries

i had a little money once
i was makin' me a six digit pay
lotto then began to take my dollars
my moola quickly flew away
if i buy 57 tickets..i figure i'll get rich
my numbers come up bust
but i still got the itch
i know its risky, but i'm crazed on lotteries

you know i've been mistaken
i hate the way my funds did sink
i'll hang onto money
off for lotto, i'll no longer slink
yes, i'll stop blowin'...but not just yet
i feel real lucky with this new set
i soon will be loaded, cause i'm crazed on lotteries

I'd wager this is at the top of the parodies posted today. Coincidentally, I just ordered a couple older Joni Mitchell CD's to both work with and listen to. 5's ~ ~ ~
