A Dollar To Start
A dollar to start, then ten to grow
A hundred tomorrow, go with the flow
You’ll soon be rich, don’t worry at all
We’d never like to see you fall!
We’re here to help, just take your card
And pay right now, it’s not so hard
It’s only numbers, smile and play
Don’t fear tomorrow, enjoy today!
So how’s it going, old friend of mine?
I’m calling to see if all is fine
Oh right, you’re not so happy now
It all went wrong, I shan’t ask how
I thought you might want one more chance
You went elsewhere, come back and dance
My game is better, so let’s begin
This time you’re really going to win!
I hope you’re happy, I need to check
The wheel has stopped, you left the deck
There’s no more action, no more cash
So once again, you had to dash?
I know you want to go, be free
I understand, that’s just like me
But this, your only chance has gone
You lost your money, the game goes on
But now you’re free, you’ll never be back
The greed you had will now attack
Another wanderer, hoping high
To have a chance before they die
So just remember, when living at last
Your hopes of riches have far from passed
A dollar to start, your dreams come true
If that first dollar is coming to you
