"Nothin' to Lose" as written by and Darrell Lance/abbott Abbott....
[Woman moaning]

I am a gambler, God knows, I've been around
I've lived it up and now I'm livin' it down
I've played some hunches, and I've played some blues
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

I thought my woman was my ace in the hole
But when she left me I was out of control
I've just had bad luck since I got the news
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

Old lady luck ain't nobody's friend
And old dame fortune broke my heart in the end
Love was the one thing I tried not to abuse
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

I like casinos and I love slot machines
I lost a fortune, if you know what I mean
Those one armed bandits was the wrong thing to choose
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

You wanna help me, do you know where I'm at?
Don't try to change me girl, it's too late for that
You say "quit gambling" and I'll have to refuse
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

I lost it all, I don't have no more to give
The doctor tells me I don't have long to live
My friends all say they'd hate to be in my shoes
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

[Woman moaning]

You say salvation is the one thing I need
It's hell or heaven that I'm just a bad seed
What makes you think you have the right to accuse
A man with nothing ain't got nothing to lose

Nothin' to lose
Nothin' to lose
Nothin' to lose

    General CommentMan, I hate the dude who submitted this.
    I was about to submit it, but since the RBR album is taking ages to arrive to my country and my english ain't that great, I couldn't make out the lyrics.
    But all the punctuation errors in these are an insult to Dime fans... I'll get the corrected.

    Anyway... this song kicks fucking ass!
