Lottery Blues

Written by: Robert Heemstra

lottery fever is hitting the land
I’m sure it’s hitting sailors at sea too
let’s face it life’s no Fantasy Island
when it comes to lottery have no clue

yet I see and hear about the winners
just like the track and casino they’ll play
churches have their bingo we’re not sinners
if wife or I win we’re at Tampa Bay

at times my wife really wants to win big
and it affects me when she’s feeling hurt
I know she would love to own a big rig
one thing for sure I know I won’t lose shirt

if you’re a player I wish you good luck
my luck’s been costing me more than a buck
