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 loo’s”)
(or) i could be a plumber
we could wait till summer
we could save our money
have a fine vacation
we could buy a trailer
if we bought a trailer
we could go to vegas
and be very happy
(“ooh loo’s”)if life is just gamble,
gamble if you want to win
(more “ooh loo’s”)–life can be so easy
let the wheel of fortune spin)
(or we could make a record
sell a lot of copies
we could play las vegas
and be very happy)
(“ooh loo’s”)–if life is just gamble,
gamble if you want to win
(more “ooh loo’s”)–life can be so easy
let the wheel of fortune spin)
