Well I lost my shirt in a card game,
Well I lost my shirt in a card game,
The deck was marked,
You could not tell at a glance.
Well I lost my job at the weekend,
Well I lost my job at the weekend,
Found a way to get a dollar,

Sleep on a bed of nails,
Skate on razor blades,
No matter what else fails, yea.
Well I spent it all down at the racetrack,
Spent it all down at the racetrack,
But it was a hoax, the mare was doped,

My rabbits foot and gypsy ring,
My rabbits foot and gypsy ring,
On this loosing streak I might not win
Well I walk on hot coals,
Walk on thin ice,
Got my little girl beside me,

Sleep on a bed of nails,
Skate on razor blades,
No matter what else fails.
