The ATM Dance

Recommended Posts

THEY BUILD THEM SO TALL LUXURIOUS AND NICE

ALL PAID FOR DOWNSTAIRS ON THE ROLL OF THE DICE

 

SOUNDS BELLS AND LIGHTS AND BIG NAME DELIGHTS

THE GAME ON TV OR A SEAT AT THE FIGHTS

 

THE OFFERS KEEP COMING SO GLOSSY AND NICE

THE ALLURE IS SO STRONG YOU HARDLY THINK TWICE

 

UPON YOUR ARRIVAL THEY FILL YOU WITH BOOZE

THAT DELAY THE IMPACT OF ALL THAT YOU LOSE

 

YOU FEEL THE THRILL AS YOU BET ON THAT CHANCE

AND TRY TO AVOID THE ATM DANCE

 

IT FEELS SO GOOD SO AS YOU FEED THE MACHINE

HOOKED ON THE PROSPECT OF WINNING CHA CHING

 

WINNERS WITH THEIR BIG CARDBOARD CHECKS SHOWING ALL OF THOSE ZEROS

ARE PICTURED SO PROUDLY AND HONORED LIKE HEROS

 

SO EAGER FOR RICHES AND YOUR SHARE OF PIE

BILLS FROM YOUR WALLET YOU CONTINUE TO PRY

 

IN THE MORNING YOUR SOBER AND YOU JUST WANT TO CRY

HOW DID SOMEONE LIKE YOU GOT CAUGHT IN THEIR LIE

 

GONE IS THE FANTASY SPUN BY THE ANGEL IN HELL

THEY TOOK ALL YOUR MONEY AND SAID FARE THEE WELL

 

GONE IS YOUR CASH AND LOST IS THE THRILL

THE NEXT BIG SURPRISE IS THE CREDIT CARD BILL
