Lyrics

Well, you can stake that claim Good work is the key to good fortune Winners take that praise Losers seldom take that blame If they don`t take that game And sometimes the winner takes nothing We draw our own designs But fortune has to make that frame We go out in the world and take our chances Fate is just the weight of circumstances That`s the way that lady luck dances Roll the bones

Why are we here? Because we`re here Roll the bones Why does it happen? Because it happens Roll the bones Faith is cold as ice Why are little ones born only to suffer For the want of immunity Or a bowl of rice? Well, who would hold a price On the heads of the innocent children If there`s some immortal power To control the dice? We come into the world and take our chances Fate is just the weight of circumstances That`s the way that lady luck dances Roll the bones Jack...relax Get busy with the facts No zodiacs or almanacs No maniacs in polyester slacks Just the facts Gonna kick some gluteus max It`s a parallax...you dig? You move around The small gets big It`s a rig It`s action...reaction Random interaction So who`s afraid Of a little abstraction? Can`t get no satisfaction From the facts? You better run, homeboy A fact`s a fact From Nome to Rome, boy What`s the deal? Spin the wheel If the dice are hot...take a shot Play your cards. Show us what you got What you`re holding If the cards are cold Don`t go folding Lady Luck is golden She favors the bold That`s cold Stop throwing stones The night has a thousand saxophones So get out there and rock And roll the bones Get busy! Roll the bones Why are we here? Because we`re here Roll the bones Why does it happen? Because it happens Roll the bones
