"Serious" as written by David W. Foster, Steven Lee Lukather, Bernie Taupin and Alice Cooper....
When I look back at my time at the track
And I played, and I played, and I played, and I was
Shooting the craps at the back of Fat Jack´s
Come on, fade me, Jake
I'm a Las Vegas dreamer they took to the cleaners
A bath, what a bath, what a bath I'd take
A fish on a hook, I was rattled and shook, 'cause I lost my stake
I took that serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke
And a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Again and again, and again, and again, and again

I'm a gambling fool with a roll and cue
Want to play? Want to play? Want to play with me?
Put my ass on the line, rubbed my nose in the grime
And they picked me clean
The chance and the game drove Old Silkly insane
What a pain, what a strain on my brain it was
A fish on a hook, I was rattled and shook, 'cause I lost my stake
I took that serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke
And a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Again and again, and again, and again, and again

Serious, it was serious, oh-so serious
Serious, it was serious, oh-so serious

All of my life was a laugh and a joke
And a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Or a friend
Again and again, and again, and again, and again

All of my life was a laugh and a joke
And a drink and a smoke
And then I passed out on the floor
Or a friend

Again and again, and again, and again, and again, and again
And again, and again, and again, and again, and again
And again, and again
