You could do the laundry, I'll come by on Monday
You give me the money, I will buy a ticket
On the local lottery, we could win the lottery
We could go to Vegas and be very happy.

Ooh...
Ooh...

I can be a plumber, we could wait to summer
We could save our money, have a fine vacation
We could buy a trailor, if we bought a trailor
We could go to Vegas and be very happy

Ooh if life is just a gamble,
Gamble if you want to win.
Ooh, life can be so easy,
Let the Wheel of Fortune spin.

We could make a record, sell a lot of copies
We could play Las Vegas, and be very happy

Ooh if life is just a gamble,
Gamble if you want to win.
Ooh, life can be so easy.
Let the Wheel of Fortune spin.

Ooh...
