(Intro and Outro - shuffle rhythm) The low down the low down lottery blues I got the low down the low down lottery blues Cos at eight o'clock I always lose! (Play Chorus - see below) (Verse one) Now Camelot say it's fourteen million to one But it seems like forty billion to none Cos every number I use Always seems to just lose I got the low down lottery blues! (Chorus) The low down national lottery blues The low down lottery blues Just six little numbers And my life would cruise Away from the lottery blues! (Verse Two) In it to win it that's what they say For the big finger to point your way But every number I use Always seems to just lose I got the low down lottery blues (Chorus) (Verse Three) I soon learned with an unlucky dip They ain't no thing as get rich quick Cos every number it choosed All randomly losed I got the low down lottery blues! (No Chorus before bridge verse) (Bridge Verse - shuffle rhythm) And it's four, nine, six, eighteen, thirty, and ten And guess who's working next week again? But some lucky 'Mother' Has got good news And the rest have got the lottery blues!
