Man on the line
Play the game, again
Ev'rybody's gonna lose
And I'm gonna win

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
So, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

Well, I had a buck
When I went to the track
Had twenty grand
When I came back

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
So, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

(saxes & instrumental)

Well, I know a horse
That's good as gold
Run like a Cadillac
I been told

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Oh, stick around baby
N' ev'ryhting will be okay

Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Gonna get rich quick
This is my lucky day
Well, I'll stea,l a-beg, an borrow
Ev'rything will be okay.
