seminole bingo lyrics – warren zevon

“seminole bingo”

i’m a junk bond king
and i’m on the run
me and a friend of mine
we were headed for the sunshine

i got my hands on the wheel
i got gas in the tank
i got a suitcase full of money
from a luxembourg bank

we didn’t stop ’til we got to big cypress
wandered in to the legion hall
the sign outside said “seminole bingo”
fell in love with the ping pong b*lls

and the sec is far behind
down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
a long way from liechtenstein
i’m a junk bond king playing seminole bingo

and my wall street wiles
don’t help me even slightly
’cause i never have the numbers
and i’m losing nightly

i cashed in the last of my triple b bonds
bought a double-wide on the tamiami trail
i parked it right outside the reservation
fifteen minutes from the collier county jail

and the sec is far behind
down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
a long way from liechtenstein
i’m a junk bond king playing seminole bingo

well, the sec is far behind
down in the swamp with the gators and flamingos
a long way from liechtenstein
i’m a junk bond king playing seminole bingo
