Lyrics

Have you ever consider’d rolling dice?
Perhaps a nat’ral twenty?
Have you not thought
that playing could be nice
Have you thought of countries?
I would like to play that nice game.
I have about three hours.

Will that be long en —
ough to play that game?

I would prefer to take six.
How about we say
we’ll eat at four and a half?
Then we can go, parents willing.

I would like to play
sometime quite soon.
Please put that rulebook away.

Have you consid er’d
you could be playing it wrong.
I think you might not like that.

That’s not how it
is suppos’d to be used.
It does not work like that.
I think, you might, die twice tonight.
You are not a good player.
