"Keep Your Eye On The Money" as written by and Nikki Sixx....
Black jack roulette
Losing high and low
She rolls the dice
She's cold as ice
Turn a young man old

Comedy and tragedy
Entertainment or death
Like sister morphine
Hooked on her game
Time to place your bets

If it wasn't for bad luck
I'd have no luck at all

Keep you eye on the money
Keep you eye on the dealer's hand
Keep you eye on the money
Keep you eye on the lady's hand

Queen of hearts
Or ace of spades
I'm dancing on the blade
Freak show goin' broke
The crowd screams on for more
Electric shock won't bring ya back
You've gone over the boards
Can't beat the clock, the deck is stacked
The crowd looks on in horror

If it wasn't for bad luck
I'd have no luck at all

Keep your eye on the money
Keep your eye on the dealer's hand
Keep your eye on the money
Keep your eye on the lady's hand
