Life's Lottery

Her hopes high upon the convenience store purchase

Until the young woman divined the game was lost

Her last three dollars gone to waste

So into the dirty gutter it was tossed

Until the young woman divined the game was lost

She dreamed of paid bills and a Hawaiian beach

So into the dirty gutter it was tossed

When the sweet dream was yanked from reach

She dreamed of paid bills and a Hawaiian beach

As she did when she was going to be a movie star

When the sweet dream was yanked from reach

Now serving drinks to slobs in a topless bar

As she did when she was going to be a movie star

She looked at herself in the mirror

Now serving drinks to slobs in a topless bar

The ravages of dreams lost stand out clear
