Steppenwolf – Life Is A Gamble lyrics

Words and music by Bobby Cochran and Harry Garfield

Spin that wheel of fortune
Playin' that game of fools
Don't be afraid to take a chance
You haven't got much to lose

Come on little girl and step right up
I want to be the first to wish you luck 'cause

Chorus: Life is a gamble where
Where you search and you ramble
And you try for the high that will help to see you through
Life is a gamble and so if you can handle
The uncertainty of tomorrow with me, Today I'll bet on you

Shoot your shot girl with all you got
I'm gonna get you to give in
The stakes are high but darlin' don't be shy
I'm givin' you a chance to win

I can't make promises they'd just be lies
It's ridin' on the wheel and a roll of the dice, 'cause

Repeat chorus

How will it be tomorrow
How Can I say today
Like a gamblin' man with a losin' hand
I'm waitin' for a winnnin' play

Come on little girl and step right up
I want to be the first to wish you luck 'cause

Repeat chorus
