The Lyrics

A parody of Matthias' parody. OS: Matthias' parody:
From somewhere in America
A desp’rate man with bucks
His airplane landed in Vegas
He thought he’d try his luck
His chances like those of a shot in the dark
That hypnotized him with hope…

He was a Tipsy Gambler
He was a Tipsy Gambler

He drank some rounds and rounds
Then he thought he’d take the floor
As he rubbed his lucky rabbit’s foot
At the casino door
Oh, how he’d love to hold so near
The thousands of dollars that he’d win while here…

“I’m lucky!”—Tipsy Gambler
“I’m lucky!”—Tipsy Gambler

All through the roulette wheel
Numbers waited to woo and steal
Poker games and 21
Oh, the house was having fun!
He loathed to see his money go
Through constant betting flow
But he lost it,,,he lost it…

Poor Tipsy Gambler (he lost it)
Poor Tipsy Gambler (he lost it)
Poor Tipsy Gambler (he lost it)
Poor Tipsy Gambler (he lost it)…
