Just one thing I can not do
Place one bet, it would lead to two Is that a problem? Does it hurt?
To not risk losing one more shirt? Not at all, it lets me live
And enjoy the rest of what life has to give. The many, many things I treasure
That give my life so much pleasure The family, friends, things big and small
I can now enjoy them all Theatre, diving. just feeding the birds
It’s hard to put into words My life, my home, my wife, my dog
I’d never have them with a gambling fog I can try new things, some I like.
Should I gamble? On your bike! Now I have the things I need
Because I decided not to feed The addiction that is in me
It can wait, and go hungry Just one thing that’s not so much
When it gives me a life I can really touch Just one thing I can not do
Place one bet and nor can you.
