The Lyrics

"Bringing Down The House" is the title of the book that inspired the movie "21"
Bringing Down the House

Watch out!
I’m getting what I’m after
Cool baby!
I’m ready for the danger
I am going to break the bank
Bringing down the House!

Hold tight!
Wait till the shoe is over
Hold tight!
We're in for nasty cards now
There has got to be a way
Bringing down the House!

Watch the pit boss, watch the eye
Ev’ryone around’s a spy
Always ready to move on
Close enough but not too far
Always know just where they are
Fightin' fire with fire!

Too hot!
Yeah, I might need to cool down
Split tens!
I’m looting in broad daylight
But I need a hundred thousand bucks
Bringing down the House!

It was once upon a time
They tried to say that it’s a crime
‘Cause I win lots of money
People on their way to work
Try to tell me with a smirk
“You need a real job”

My game!
Is out of the ordinary
That's right!
Don't want to hurt nobody
But my 4-0-1-K is in the tank
Bringing down the House!

Now it’s time to raise my bet
But you have not seen nothing yet
When ev’rything comes together
I don't know what you expect
But I am planning to collect
I need to retire!

Bringing down the House!
