Keno Baby

Keno Baby

My wife and I liked to play keno
Just about every weekend we would go

She was pregnant and due any day
Over an hour’s ride each way

Other players would say  
Your going to give birth today
   
We got home and went to bed
It’s that time my wife had said

Her water broke on the floor
Our first was born in nineteen sixty four   

It was almost a maybe
That we had a keno baby
