From the album lie to me


I used to hang out, down at jack's pool hall
You go down there, don't do nothin' at all
You wanted to play some cards there was a game in the back
You wanted to shoot of somethin', you went and talked to jack
If you had a little money you was a grade a fool
There was a guy down there who used to shoot a little pool

Rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up

Till the day he was dead,
That all they ever said was rack Ў®em up
He didn't own a tv set, he didn't own no car
He ate whatever jack was makin' back behind the bar
They said he had a wife but, she left him in tears
He hadn't been home once in twenty-five years

Rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up

They come from all over thinkin' they were pretty hot
They put the money on the table, wanna play the best we got
Nine in the corner, five in the side
Take a hundred dollar bill and just, let it ride
I'd tell him, "listen hear sonny, there ain't no disaster
There ain't no shame in bein' beaten by a master"

Rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up
Yea, rack Ў®em up
Rack Ў®em up, rack Ў®em up

Til' the day he was gone, they said it all day long rack Ў®em up
