Bet your love on a slot machine
One quick pull to make here leave
Spinning reels spin your reeling head
Both come up empty, better off dead

Bet your heart on a poker hand
Came up with jokers, five of them and,
The only thing winning, the voice in your head
Argues the point, better off dead

Up by the river on the east side of town
That was where, you let your guard down
Let your guard down

Bet your smile down at the track
Long-shot horse named paint it black
Straight to second to last place instead
Please hit the ground, better off dead

Bet it all at the black jack table
Split up your hand, thought yous was able
To play two queens for everything instead
Dealer says man, your better off dead

Up by the river on the east side of town
That was where you let your guard down
Let your guard down
Let your guard down
Let your guard down
