My baby's a crap shooter
And she shoots 'em like a man
My babe, she's a crapshooter
And she shoots em' like a man
And ev' since she been shooting craps
Woo-well-well, she been going from hand to hand

Sometime she wins
But the most time she lose
Sometime she win
But now the most time she lose
But now when she lose
Woo-well-well, then I have the crap shooting blues

She told me to always
Bet that the dice won't pass
She told to always
Bet that the dice won't pass
But ev'rytime since I been bettin' that way
Woo-well-well, I been had a raggedy yas, yas, yas.

Since I have been shooting craps
I can't win a cent
Since I have been shooting craps
I can't win a cent
Well, I can't win enough dough
Woo-hoo-well-well, now to even pay my rent

I'm tellin' all you crapshooters
Now to let crapshooting go
I am telling all you crapshooters
Woo-well, to let crapshooting go
'Cause now you will be stone barefooted
Woo-well-well, then again and outta dough.
