The Lyrics

This is my last song for awhile (about 3 weeks) due to papers and finals. I think its not bad... but all you readers can judge for yourselves and say what you think by clicking 3 dots at the bottom of the page. And remember this follows the coolio original version not the weird al version
As I walk through the alley and get back in my house
I take a look at my wife and realize I should get out
Cause I've been sinning but winning no cash and
Even Hammer would think that my spending's rash
But I ain't never made a bet there's no chance of paying
I'm sure that I'll win enough to if I keep playing
I'd better watch how I'm spending, my ways be mending
The banks have been loaning but that might soon end
I really hate to beg but I gotta eat
In two days I see myself living on the street, fool
I've the kind of luck that even Murphy never dreamed of
Hundred bucks when I come when I leave I have peanuts

Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise
Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise

Was at the poker table, hoped I was able
Not to lose a lot of bucks but I had no such luck
So I gotta rebound with the blackjack
Too much tough decision botching didn't get jack back
An uneducated fool I failed out of grade 9
Got my chips in my hand but soon they won't be mine
I'm a flat broke gambler ain't never winning
Tried a poker face and I ended up a grinning, fool
Bucks are nothing but a dice roll away
Inside I cried, but I'll try, some more today
I've 23 bucks, but will I ever have twenty four?
The way things are going I'm not sure

Tell me why am I, too dumb to try
Doing something else, cheaper at night
Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise
Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise

My bad situation, would be less unpretty
If I moved far away, from atlantic city
Garbage man by day, throw cash away at nighttime
And if it stopped being Aces, think I'd bet on the races
I think I must be cured, from this horrible addiction
Is a cure a likely thing, or is it fiction?
I hope its not, need help a lot
And I have got, to try or I'll be an out of luck fool

Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise
Been spending most of my life, losing in a gambler's paradise
I sure pissed off my wife, losing in a gambler's paradise

Tell me why am I, too dumb to try
Doing something else, cheaper at night

Tell me why am I, too dumb to try
Doing something else, cheaper at night
