Roll The Dice (Avalon Mickey)

Liza was a lesbian who lived in the Bronx She used to make me dinner when the winters were long Liza packed a pistol and a train to St. John Along Lincoln Continental took a boat near and far We used to count stars while Mary tended bar Liza's long term lover Mary buried her last broad Stuck her twice quick with an ice pick Workin' on the night shift then took flight, in light so bright it Hurt her eyes so she cursed the skies Gripping her purse tight bursting through the night With her hands washed clean off the murder scene She moved to New York City, hung with hookers and fiends Then one night she met Liza in the bar that she worked Serving appetizers in a buttoned down shirt They got along together liked high heels and short skirts So Mary packed her bags and she became Liza's bird Then I saw less 'n' less of Liza and the last that I heard of her Mary murdered her Roll the dice, every soul's gotta price For a fiend while your teen do things you won't believe And kids in poverty pull tricks and robberies So do what you gotta do to get off the streets Jesse moved to Hollywood to take his great chance With a dream in his heart and a blade in his pants Jesse waited tables in the fancy place at Robinson When David Harses's daughter strutted in and spotted him She said, ''Hey, little Cutie, you're a beauty follow me? And took him to all the best parties in the city Introduced to the new producers on the scene He did all he could to get his face on the screen Jesse learned how to slouch with his ass on the casting couch And took it like a champ when they passed him around He read script after script and sucked a whole lotta dick But the only films that Jesse ever made were Jacko flicks So one night he took the blade that he got from his pops Dragged it across his throat and left a note in the mailbox Roll the dice, every soul's gotta price For a fiend while your teen do things you won't believe And kids in poverty pull tricks and robberies So do what you gotta do to get off the streets Roll the dice, every soul's gotta price For a fiend while your teen do things you won't believe And kids in poverty pull tricks and robberies So do what you gotta do to get something to eat Heidi wore a nighty when she worked on the Ave And shiny black stilettos and a red leather bag Heidi took the dough up front and went south She would pick your pocket with your dick in her mouth After she left the trick broke she'd hit him up for a smoke Then count her loot and go shoot some coke She was cute as a button, sweeter than a muffin But Heidi slit your throat if you didn't pay her for her lovin' Me and Heidi first met on Vine and Sunset She was pourin' sweat out the corvette She looked at me and cringed said, ?Hey, you over there If you've got the syringe follow me and I'll share? We went back to my room and used my harpoon Noddin' off on the couch watchin' cartoons And when the sun went down she said, ?I'll see ya around? The last I heard of Heidi she had moved outta town Keepin' the place tidy for some high payin' fool One night she thought she was a fish and drowned in the pool Roll the dice, every soul's gotta price For a fiend while your teen do things you won't believe And kids in poverty pull tricks and robberies So do what you gotta do to get something to eat Roll the dice, every soul's gotta price For a fiend while your teen do things you won't believe And kids in poverty pull tricks and robberies So do what you gotta do to get something to eat
