Well I lost an eye in Mexico I lost two teeth, where I don't know People see me coming and they move to the other side of the road I robbed a liquor store or two I made myself at home a few times Borrow myself a car when I need it I got me a shack at the bottom of the road Fixing cars and giving tows I spend all my money On the lottery
When I win the lottery Gonna buy all the girls on my block Color TV and a bottle of French perfume When I win the lottery Gonna donate half my money to the city So they have to name a street or a school or a park after me When I win the lottery
Never ran a flag Up a pole Like Mr. Red White and Blue down the road But I never call myself a hero for killing a known communist Now I could walk into any old bar And find a fight without looking too hard But I never killed someone I don't know Just cause someone told me to.
And when I win the lottery Gonna buy the house next to Mr. Red, White and Blue And when I win the lottery Gonna buy post 306 American legion, paint it red with five gold stars When I win the lottery
When the end comes to this old world The righteous will cry and the rest will curl up God won't take the time To sort your ashes from mine Cause we zig and zag between good and bad Stumble and fall on right and wrong Cause the tumbling dice with the luck of the draw Just leads us on
And when I win the lottery Gonna buy all the girls on my block Silver plated Six shooters with a quart of the finest highland scotch Cause when I win the lottery The righteous will shake their heads and say That God is good, but surely works in mysterious ways When I win the lottery.
