The Lyrics

Life is a gamble ain't it? LOL!! ;-D ;-)
Their money is in the pot
So shuffle up and deal
And all they want to do is bet, bet
They’re flippin’ their chips, and russin’ the Roulette wheel
And all they want to do is bet
Cigarettes, wine, beer, and tropical drinks
And all they want to do is bet, bet
Seem to be all they need to help them think
And all they want to do is bet
High rollers walking around burning money they don’t earn
And all they want to do is bet, bet, bet
Slot machine fruitcakes, like watchin’ them wheels turn
And all they want to do is
And all they want to do is bet
Without regrets
Wanna feel Lady Luck’s grip, up and down the strip
It’s all or nothin’ (woo!) so they let it ride (woo!)
All they want to do is
All they want to do is bet

(Instrumental Break)

Well you can’t be under 21
Is what the rules are about
And all they want to do is bet, bet
The faster us kids sneak in
Is all the faster we get thrown out
And all they want to do is bet
But that don’t keep us kids from doin’ some gamblin’ too
And all they want to do is bet, bet
They still can sell us kiddies, fake I.D.’s state issued
All they want to do is
All they want to do is bet
Without regrets

(Instrumental Break)

Well, we barely made the Amtrak
Caught the last train out
And as it clacked down the track
We could hear the people shout, they said:
“Don’t come back here again, loser!”
But if I ever do, I’ll lose more money
Cause all they want to do is bet
Without regrets

Wanna feel Lady Luck’s grip, up and down the strip
It’s all or nothin’ (woo!) so they let it ride (woo!)
All they want to do is
All they want to do is bet
Without regrets
All they want to do is bet

(Instrumental till fade…)

Why do you think they call them "one armed bandits". Gambling is always touted as a source of funding for schools and other government projects. That money won't accrue from paying out big prizes to everyone who steps through the door. Like booze and cigarettes, gambling is a reliably steady revenue stream because it is based on compulsions. Your lyrics capture that frenzy. If you are in the mood to gamble on another parody, check out "Down on the River".

Gambling is far too lucrative to those in government. The people who run 'serious' gambling are the Mafia. They tend to be a bit more intelligent as to what is needed to get and keep the profits. (Intelligent as in utterly ruthless and without a shred of scruples. The government tends to have some scruples and a lack of the needed 'stone' to wade through rivers of blood and create mountains of corpses. Shall we take our luparas and make our guns warm? The Mafia people don't ask such questions - all they do is blow people away. Nuff said, and it's Snuff time if you're 'made'.
