Back Next The Winner

Honey child
I see you is down
in the mouth
never mind honey child
I'm gonna go out
and buy us another ticket
for next week
and this
as sure as I am
standing here
is gonna be
a winning ticket
and you are gonna
be rich honey child
like no man I know

and all your cares
are gonna lift
honey child
like steam off
a hot kettle
come on honey child
don't fret
I am gonna cook ya
some fritters
sleep it off
honey child sleep it off
while I go out
and buy us a new
right now
take me a minute
to go down to the
lottery place
and buy a new ticket
take me a minute.
just a minute.
