The Lyrics

This song is about an obsessive horse-racing junkie, with the names of an ex-acquaintance and her husband added.
Hey guys, let's go horse-racing tonight
Smarty Jones is winning something
That's been known to change our wallets forever
We'll kill our 401Ks tonight
So stick around
You're gonna see a Kentucky Colonel
Solid walls of drawl
Say, Randy and Connie, have you wagered yet
But he's so spaced out, Lenny and his bets
Oh they're weird and irrational
Well, yeah, he's an unhappy loser
He's got hobnail boots, a leisure suit
You know I saw him in Gamblers Digest Magazine
Lenny and his bets
Hey guys, plug into the faithful
Maybe they're committed
But Lenny makes them break their religion
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
Where we fight the other bettors out in the street
To see who's won and who's lost
