Off To The Races

Lyricist:     Composer:

My old man is a bad man but
I can't deny the way he holds my hand
And he grabs me he has me by my heart
He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past
He doesn't mind I have an LA crass way about me
He loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart

Swimming pool glimmering darling
White bikini off with my red nail polish
Watch me in the swimming pool
Bright blue ripples you sittin' sippin' on your black Cristal
Oh yeah

Light of my life fire of my loins
Be a good baby do what I want
Light of my life fire of my loins
Give me them gold coins give me them coins

And I'm off to the races cases of Bacardi chasers
Chasin' me all over town 'cause he knows I'm wasted
Facin' time again on Rikers Island and I won't get out
Because I'm crazy baby I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little scarlet starlet singin' in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for you

My old man is a tough man but
He's got a soul as sweet as blood red jam
And he shows me he knows me
Every inch of my tar black soul
He doesn't mind I have a flat broke down life
In fact he says he thinks it's why he might like about me
Admires me the way I roll like a Rolling Stone

Likes to watch me in the glass room bathroom Chateau Marmont
Slippin' on my red dress puttin' on my makeup
Glass film perfume cognac lilac
Fumes says it feels like heaven to him

Light of his life fire of his loins
Keep me forever tell me you own me
Light of your life fire of your loins
Tell me you own me give me them coins

And I'm off to the races cases of Bacardi chasers
Chasin' me all over town 'cause he knows I'm wasted
Facin' time again on Rikers Island and I won't get out
Because I'm crazy baby I need you to come here and save me
I'm your little scarlet starlet singin' in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth

Yo I'm off to the races laces
Leather on my waist is tight and I am fallin' down
I can see your face is shameless Cipriani's basement
Love you but I'm going down
God I'm so crazy baby I'm sorry that I'm misbehaving
I'm your little harlot starlet Queen of Coney Island
Raising hell all over town
Sorry 'bout it

My old man is a thief and I'm gonna stay and pray with him till the end
But I trust in the decision of the Lord to watch over us
Take him when he may if he may
I'm not afraid to say that I'd die without him
Who else is gonna put up with me this way
I need you I breathe you I'd never leave you
They would rue the day I was alone without you
You're lyin' with your gold chain on cigar hangin' from your lips
I said "Hun' you never looked so beautiful as you do now my man"

And we're off to the races places
Ready set the gate is down and now we're goin' in
To Las Vegas chaos Casino Oasis honey it is time to spin
Boy you're so crazy baby I love you forever not maybe
You are my one true love you are my one true love

You are my one true love
