tails you lose

to say the very least I had a problem with my past life

six boys, csa an a no good cheating wife

now the boys are all grown up an wanna kill me

no lawyer in the land would defend me

kept my alibi short and sweet

up against the wall facing defeat

next words carefully had to choose

said sons one an all

heads you win 

tails you lose

some you win some you lose

sun always shining 

or you got the blues

them pay no taxes

never their dues

all hope on heads

it’s tails you lose

tried to make amends with my old self

looking back all the time you pay with bad health

still it haunts me like a ghost

doctor said try leaving for the coast

hell wouldn’t you know he was right

thanked my lucky stars every night

til one sunny day I answered the door

six burly bruisers an the devil’s own whore

some you win some you lose

sun always shining or you got the blues

them pay no taxes

never their dues

all rides on heads

tails you lose

your glass maybe half empty

in the land of plenty

could be red you’re riding black

rosy eyed dream begins to crack

maybe a big estate

rotten luck forever wait

some you win some you lose

sun always shining or you got the blues

them pay no taxes

rest forever payin their dues

all rides on heads

sorry

it’s tails you lose
