Aint no reason

Aint no rhyme

What I'm do'in

Earn nothin' an' dime

Takin' these dollars

Playin' small time

On this table

Nothin's stable

 

Nothin' much else!

Nothin' much else!

 

 

Touched by a Rainbow

Played it's end

Kissed this life

Money to spend

Spinning eyes

On a gambler's prize

And nothin' much else!

No. Nothin' much else!

 

Losin' spells

Tragic tell

Hotel window

Lookin' back

Faded hands

Folding lies

Won and lost

Love and dust

And nothin' much else!

No. Nothin' much else!

Touched a Rainbow

Played its end
