BIG BOSS MAN
Eddy Mitchell


I'm a big time gambler
That's why I'm always on the move
I'm a big time gambler
That's why I'm always on the move
Always tryin' my best to win
But somehow or other always lose

Started gamblin' Friday night
Just as soon as I got paid
But before the game was over
I lost every dime I made
I say I'm a big time gambler
I've got Las Vegas in my veins
And when it comes to races
Bettin' on horses is my thing
(That's why I've always got the blues)

Like most big time gamblers
You know they've always got the blues
Just like most big time gamblers
You know they've always got the blues
You know they never stop gamblin'
Until they lose their socks and shoes
