step right up my good friends
I’m the dealer of days
take a chance on tomorrow
bet your dreams buy your plays

if you win I’ll assure
you the finest estate
if you lose I will choose
what will hang as your fate

but I’d give you one chance
double down for my stake
of all dreams from all men
lost to gambling’s mistake

if you win they’re all yours
every whole every part
if you lose then I’ll take
all the hope in your heart
