The Lyrics

...thanks to ann hammond for the idea...
let's go splurgin', wow
wipe out all your earnings now
come to the casino with me
(come to the casino with me)

early without warnin', i'll be crappin' out
my money dissipated 'fore long
no matter where i put it, when i roll the dice
its headin' south...everything's wrong

come on baby...poverty
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
come on along, spend, baby...what a treat
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
let's go splurgin' now
make a dent in your cash cow
come to the casino with me
(come to the casino with me)

when playin' craps, i often lose, i'm shootin' with fear
at lexus, i lost all my dough
the dealer said "i'm sorry, but you're credit ain't cleared
so if you're broke now, i'm afraid you must go"

come on baby...poverty
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
come on along, spend, baby...what a treat
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
let's go splurgin' now
make a dent in your cash cow
come to the casino with me
(come to the casino with me)

later, maybe sooner, i'll be playin' the fool
i'm messin' up at slot machines, too
i tell ya, chips will rarely pile, i'm gettin' nervous as i play
though, i thought that there was no way to lose

come on baby...poverty
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
come on along, spend, baby...what a treat
yes, i'm gonna take you gamblin' with me
let's go splurgin' now
make a dent in your cash cow
come to the casino with me
(come to the casino with me)

poor me...splurgin' safari...poor me...splurgin' safari
poor me...splurgin' safari...poor me...splurgin' safari
poor me...splurgin' safari...poor me...splurgin' safari

I'm not too sure that anybody who ever lost their retirement fund on a roll of the dice would find any humor in this, but it sure made me giggle. Let's roll dem bones..................oooooh look.....555

Next time you feel like splurging in a casino, just send me $555, and I'll send $5.55 back. You'll come out ahead!

If I played craps I'd end up washing more pants. I get crazy little ideas in my head all the time it's just a matter of plugging them in to a song. Glad you were able to use my comment.
