Snakes & Ladders Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I can stand but I don't like the feeling
I could fall but I'm always on the floor
You could make a million staring at the ceiling
You could break your back and still be poor

One for the liar, one for the cheat
One for the man, who you'll never meet
Piece of the action and a portion of pie
They'll be there waiting when your big chance comes by

There's a snake on top of every ladder
Who will tell you that he's your best friend
Everyone important needs an adder
But subtraction gets you in the end

One for the liar, one for the thief
One for the man, whose time is so brief
Piece of the action and a portion of pie
They'll be there waiting when your big chance comes by

One for the liar, one for the cheat
One for the man, who you'll never meet
Piece of the action and a portion of pie
They'll be there waiting when your big chance comes by

They don't care they don't mind
The in-betweens will steal you blind
I don't know I can't say
It seems it's always been this way
You won't feel or complain
The gentle leech will cause no pain
