Rob Schackne #416 - "Bound to lose"

            (h/t The Holy Modal Rounders)

Bound to lose
it's not real
I'm working in
the laboratory
on burnt denim
and stardust
comes and goes

it's not home
it's not real
I got me an apple
I got me a pear
got from a planet 

riverboat gambler
bound to lose
from town to town

we waltz the night
I waltz me the night
tell me what this means
what this means
riverboat gambler
it's not real
bound to lose
so bound to lose

lay this body down

  1. Hmm. Just a recurrent earworm to me - but far better to any interested parties is to have a listen to the Holy Modal Rounders sing "Bound to Lose", circa 1964. Since it's a classic, it shouldn't be too hard to track down. :)
