The Lyrics

One of my friend's favourite songs that he'd love to sing over and over again in karaoke nights is "My Way" by Frank Sinatra. But then as I walked out of the bar one Friday, I thought this song up to really pull his legs. This parody is based on my own TAB (a place you bet on sports and horses) 'investing' experience and wrote this up.
And now, that June is here
So I face, my home accountants
My friends, I'll say it clear
Then stash my cash from a local chaplain

I've built, a pot that's full,
I invest each and every Friday
I know too much 'bout this
How I get my pay

Paychecks, I've had a few
But then again, too few to mention
I did, what I had to do
To kiss my 'Queens' [Like how Americans refer a $100 bill as a 'Benjamin Franklin, we in New Zealand refer a $20 note as the Queen (Queen Elizabeth II), with tax exemptions

I planned, each line I call
Each single slip, before the first game
And more, much more than this.
That's how I get paid.

Yes there were times, I'm sure you knew
When I bid more, for all that I can choose
But through it all, when there was doubt
I weighted them up, and sit them out.
I've seen it all, and I stood tall
And I got my pay.

I've tried points starts, combined
First one to score, heads up, and margins
And now as time ticks by, I found them all so intriguing
Now think, I called all that, and may I say, not in a shy way
Oh no, no I don't bet
I have earned my pay

For such a poor man, what have I got
If I do bet, then I have naught
I'll show the world, of all the deals
And not the calls of what my heart feels
The record show, I am not broke
And I get my pay

Yet, I won't get laid.
Yes, that's basically my way of denying I have a sport gambling problem. But man, I'm winning so much lately.
