Song title: Roll of the dice


Roll of the dice

Well I’ve been a losin’ gambler
Just throwin’ snake eyes
Love ain’t got me downhearted
I know up around the corner lies
My fool’s paradise
In just another roll of the dice

All my elevens and sevens been comin’ up
Sixes and nines
But since I fell for you baby
Been comin’ on changin’ times
They’re just waitin’ over the rise
Just another roll of the dice

I’ve stumbled and I know I made my mistakes
But tonight I’m gonna be playin’ for all of the stakes
Well it’s never too late so come on girl
The tables are waiting
You and me and lady luck well tonight
We’ll be celebrating
Drinkin’ champagne on ice
In just another roll of the dice

High-rollers lay down your bets and I’ll raise ‘em
Well I know the odds ain’t in my favor

Maybe I’m just a clown throwin’ down
Looking’ to come up busted
I’m a thief in the house of love
And I can’t be trusted
Well I’ll be making my heist
In just another roll of the dice
Move on up
Come on seven
Roll me baby
In this fool’s heaven
