Get out the cards and they wouldn't notch it
Get on the horses and they wouldn't knock it
I'm not gonna give up, I'm gonna try it again
Keep on bettin', someday Brownie's bound to win

Life is a gamble
People, come rain, come shine
But if you keep on betting
You're bound to win sometime

Take a horse to water but you can't make him drink
Take a charge to school but you can't lick a finger
You can dig a pit for somebody else
You don't want, my friend to fall in that, oh, yourself

Life is a gamble
People, come rain, come shine
But if you keep on tryin'
You're bound to win sometime

Your woman leaves you, please don't wear no black
Two to one, she may come squealing back
If outstretched, here's what she may say
"Please forgive me, Brownie for walkin' away"

Life is a gamble
People, come rain, come shine
But if you keep on waitin'
You're bound, bound to win sometime

Rabbit and a turtle had a race one day
Rabbit could beat the turtle in any old way
The rabbit thought he was so fast
He laid down and went to sleep
When he woke up that old slow turtle had his deal

Life is a gamble
People come rain, come shine
But if you keep on movin'
You're bound to win sometime
Sometime, sometime
