The Lyrics

This is my second rewrite of this song hope i got it right this time
Its been a bad day
Theres lots of bills that I have gotta pay
But in Las Vegas things did not quite go my way
My luck was so small
While playing poker, if in the deck there was no joker
I would be rich not broker
But I lost it all

And if your hand contained a royal flush
You as well would have bet lots of stuff
But he had five cards, and each one was a four
Now Im so poor

Because of Murphys law I had to fail
Ive got cash like a see-saw or a garbage pail
In olden days this would have got me thrown in jail
Guess Im in luck, I might starve
But that is just about it

Just give me something
Ill more than pay you back within just a week
I am sure my luck is gonna stop being bleak
On that I swear
Im not addicted, Im just trying not to be evicted
If you dont help me then you are rather wicked
Also very unfair

And if your hand contained a royal flush
You as well would have bet lots of stuff
But he had five cards, and each one was a four
Now Im so poor

Because of Murphys law I had to fail
Ive got cash like a see-saw or a garbage pail
In olden days this would have got me thrown in jail
Guess Im in luck, I might starve
But that is just about it
