Five hundred will buy you a stack
Bet it on the red or the black and you lose

Bet on the blues

You tell me you are a gambling man
Try to beat the house if you can and you lose

Bet on the blues

If you're looking to get an inside slant
If you're looking for something so good you can't refuse

Bet on the blues

Find a man who thinks he's over the hump
And I'm here to tell you he's a kind of a chump, you can use

Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues

Lucky old sun is shining today
Even money says you'll be paying some dues

Bet on the blues

You say you found your lady fair
Eight to five says she's wearing her traveling shoes

Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues

Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues, bet on the blues

Five hundred will buy you a stack
Bet it all on the red or the black and you lose

Bet on the blues

If you're looking to get an inside slant
If you're looking for something so good, you can't refuse

Bet on the blues
Bet on the blues

Bet on the blues
You better, bet on the blues
