"Bon Temps Roulette"

[Verse 1]
At a roulette table on a riverboat
With ermine on her shoulders and diamonds 'round her throat
She laid a wad of money on seven and said let it roll
Yeah, like the Cajuns say bon temps roulette let the good times roll

[Verse 2]
She hit her number and the table went wild
That good lookin' woman never cracked a smile
She said just stack it all back on seven honey and let it roll
Yeah, I've come to play bon temps roulette let the good times roll

Then somebody whispered I think she's got a gun, ya'll
Ain't she that woman from Memphis who's been on the run

[Verse 3]
Well, they say she caught her husband piled up on the bed
With a Cajun stripper that they call Little Red
She got her husband's revolver and slipped a bullet in one hole
Then she said we gonna play a little Russian roulette
And let the good times roll

[Verse 4]
She hit her number on the very first spin
Put in another bullet and (blam) hit it again
She said ooh I'm feelin' lucky I think I'll try the riverboat
Like Lil' Red used to say bon temps roulette let the good times roll

[Chorus]
Let the good times roll - let the good times roll
If you're gonna play you know there ain't no way to save your soul
Let the good times roll
Let 'em roll - let 'em roll
Yeah, like the Cajuns say bon temps roulette
Let the good times roll

[Verse 5]
She must have had a million dollars he put it in a sack
Then he put her in his prowler but not in the back
And he didn't turn north towards Memphis
He headed south and let it roll
Yeah, like the Cajuns say down New Orleans way
Let the good times roll

[Chorus]
Let the good times roll - let the good times roll
If you're gonna play you know there ain't no way to save your soul
Let the good times roll
Let 'em roll - let 'em roll
Let the good times roll
Yeah, like the Cajuns say bon temps roulette
Let the good times roll
