[The Man]
Charlie went out to the gambling hall
And he started to play on the roulette wheel
With a quarter on the red and his head in his hands
As he watched and he waited till the ball came to rest

Old Charlie never moved, he just let his money ride
And the red won again, and again, and again
He won sixteen times before they found out he was dead
For the whole time, what a wonder, he was dead, but still a winner
Imagine the shock and the stunning loss of pride
For the house had been losing to a man who had died
There's gotta come a time when we all gotta go
The start is always fast but the ends always slow
[Swallow]
And the moral is? and the moral is?
And the moral is? and the moral is?
[The Man]
When miss Annie found out she put a gun to her head
It was loaded, sixteen bullets
She was all dressed in black, she had her necklace on
When she fired sixteen bullets

Her sons put her in a coffin then they put it in a hearse
It was drawn by sixteen horses
Then they all got on a barge and they drifted out to sea
To see a fallen angel, whose fall was over
A fallen angel, with a moustache

And there's gotta come a time when we've all gotta go
You start out always fast but the ends always slow
There's gotta come a time when we've all gotta go
You start out always fast but the ends always slow
[Swallow, Brat & Poor Baby]
And the moral is? and the moral is?
And the moral is? and the moral is?
[The Man]
It was their time to go so they went
