Since time began the gamblin' man
Has always led the way,
You can beat the odds and trim the gods
But first you gotta play!
Let it ride, let it ride,
When your luck looks good, let it ride,
Let it roll, let it ride,
Make a side-bet on the side,
When you got that hunch, let it ride!
Spread your sail, ride the time,
When you're goin' good, let it ride!
Let it romp, let it rip,
Get your wallet off your hip,
When you hit that clip, let it ride!
The faint of heart never reach the heights
They get their goodies in tiny bites!
Multiply, don't divide
When your luck looks good, let it ride!
When you feel unafraid
And you know you got it made,
And when love is the prize
That is right before your eyes,
Bet your gold, bet your gal,
Bet the Panama Canal,
Come on pal, let it ride!
