Well, you can stake that claim, Good work is the key to good fortune Winners take that praise Losers seldom take that blame If they don't take that game And sometimes the winner takes nothing We draw our own designs But fortune has to make that frame
We go out in the world and take our chances Fate is just the weight of circumstances That's the way that lady luck dances Roll the bones
Why are we here? Because we're here Roll the bones Why does it happen? Because it happens Roll the bones
Faith is cold as ice, Why are little ones born only to suffer For the want of immunity Or a bowl of rice? Well, who would hold a price On the heads of the innocent children If there's some immortal power To control the dice?
We come into the world and take our chances Fate is just the weight of circumstances That's the way that lady luck dances Roll the bones
Jack, relax. Get busy with the facts. No zodiacs or almanacs, No maniacs in polyester slacks. Just the facts. Gonna kick some Gluteus max. It's a parallax, you dig? You move around The small gets big. It's a rig. It's action, reaction, Random interaction. So who's afraid Of a little abstraction? Can't get no satisfaction From the facts? You better run, homeboy, A fact's a fact From Nome to Rome, boy.
What's the deal? Spin the wheel. If the dice are hot, take a shot. Play your cards. Show us what you got, What you're holding. If the cards are cold, Don't go folding. Lady Luck is golden, She favors the bold. That's cold. Stop throwing stones, The night has a thousand saxophones. So get out there and rock, And roll the bones. Get busy!
