The Lyrics

This is not meant to make light of a serious subject, but more to direct attention to, and highlight such sad scenarios facing many senior citizens, or anyone with a gambling addiction
Dealer's cards pitch,
Saved the wrong pair
Calling that last raise around,
Losing my share..
Spendin' With Clowns

Games, I now switch,
It's time to move..
Hearing the slot machine sound
Luck needs new groove
Fast my heart pounds,
Spendin' With Clowns

Gambling again, breaking old rules
Performing casino circus, with all these fools
Blowing the whole monthly pay
Like some honey starved bear
Stubborn and blind..
Grasping at air..

Saving no face
Cash dwindling fear..
Just thinking like I always think,
Jackpot is near.
Bright wheels turn their rounds,
I'm Spendin' With Clowns
My last dollar's here..

Tired and broke,
Fighting a tear,
Leaving a loser, again
Home time is here..
To the parkin' lot grounds,
Thru Spendin' With Clowns,
Next time..I..might...cheer...

Next time...I...might...cheer

Well, maybe next year...
Loved it AFW.The sad truth is, many people live this way. I've seen seniors in wheelchairs with oxygen tanks playing slots at Foxwoods in CT.And thay were bussed in!
I'm sure Stephen Sondhiem would be proud of you.

Sir, this is good, but sad . . . For Seniors to be reduced to gambling fools, after leading lives of hard work & sacrifice! But they still have ~High Hopes~ of winning big!

If that's not bad enough, I hear of people in wheelchairs with oxygen masks still smoking.
