as i was playing online slots, trying to get back up to $1700 from $1620 or so, cher's "not enough love and understanding" was on. i heard "gambling" in "standing" and came up with "not enough money won from gambling" - because i'm not going to stop gambling at $1700 if i've lost so much more than that.

this song must've come out in the summer of 1991 - i don't really remember being anywhere and hearing it, i just had a hunch. it struck me as a real "summer song," i think i remember driving in philadelphia when it was on. i didn't get my license until 1992, so maybe it was my mom driving - maybe it was on the way to dr. guarino's in allentown.

anyway, here goes...

fears here in this world - where do i go, where would i turn
if i'd need some mo...ney - seems that money can't be found
where, where is my share - now money's tight, casino's so bad

i got big bucks hard - hard times of horrid strife
bad luck was such pain, near loss of life
i lost all of what was, now i want to gamble just to make up

not enough money won from gambling
i would lose too much to win it at one time
not enough money won from gambling
i'm so blind

spent all of my time in the buildings just to get mine
being there is daily, there's a dream to reap the most
slots never can win, no - win my bank, my bank needs refilled

i lost enough for house-siding - wow, that hurts
too much - hey, it makes me very scared
i lost all of what was, now i want to gamble just to make up

not enough money won from gambling
i would lose too much to win it at one time
not enough money won from gambling
i'm so blind

i need to stop this gambling,
i need to win what was
the money lost from gambling
enough for house-siding, four new rides
enough mo...ney made my whole world bright
enough lost - if i could turn back time
i lost all of what was, now the one thing's gambling - just to make up
