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 blow lots of cash
played around with 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 ~ ~ ~
