Dealing With The Devil

This life I'm living in is heaven in disguise,
Won't someone please remove this blindfold from my eyes,
She says she wants it, and it's hard to disagree,
I work for her so much that I should charge a fee.

Dear Lady Luck, she is never on my side,
And when I break the mold, I get lost in the tide,
It's hard to admit it, but she's got the leash on me,
All I need is a winning streak and then I'll be set free.

Even though we've come so far, we've got so far to go,
I made a deal with the devil now, the king of Rock 'n' Roll,
I know it's stupid, but I am a gambling man,
And with these cards upturned, I've got the winning hand.
