Don't ask me why I did it,
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
There were no other amusements or games to play
To pass the night away.
Don't ask me why I did it
I must have been lonely, stupid, or blind,
But I know that it seemed like a good idea at the time.

It was 3 AM in the casino
I was feeling like the Sportsman of the Year
So I blew a little money on the roulette wheel,
And I taught myself to play Chemin de fer.

Don't ask me why I did it,
It seemed like a good idea at the time.
There were no other amusements or games to play
To pass the night away.
Don't ask me why I did it
I must have been lonely stupid or blind,
But I know that it seemed like a good idea at the time

As the dawn came round on Monte Carlo,
I had lost the car and safe deposit key,
The country house in Switzerland was mine no more,
And the gendarme at the door said "c'est la vie!"

Don't ask me why I did it,
I must have been lonely stupid or blind,
But I know that it seemed like a good idea at the time.
