Off to the Races

My old man is a bad man

But I can't deny the way he holds my hand

And he grabs me, he has me by my heart

He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past

He doesn't mind I have a L.A crass way about me

He loves me with every beat of his cocaine heart



Swimming pool

Glimmering darling

White bikini off with my red nail polish

Watch me in the swimming pool

Bright blue ripples, you

Sitting sipping on your Black Cristal, oh yeah



Light of my life, fire in my loins

Be a good baby, do what I want

Light of my life, fire in my loins

Gimme them gold coins

Gimme them coins



And I'm off to the races, cases

Of Bacardi chasers

Chasing me all over town

'Cause he knows I'm wasted,

Facing time again at Riker's Island

And I won't get out



Because I'm crazy, baby

I need you to come here and save me

I'm your little scarlet starlet

Singing in the garden

Kiss me on my open mouth

Ready for you



My old man is, a tough man

But he got a soul as sweet as blood red jam

And he shows me, he knows me, every inch of my tar black soul

He doesn't mind I have a flat broke down life

In fact he says he thinks it's what he might like about me, admires me

The way I roll like a rolling stone



Likes to watch me in the glass room, bathroom

Chateau Marmont

Slipping on my red dress, putting on my make up

Glass film, perfume, cognac, lilac

Fumes, says it feels like heaven to him



Light of his life, fire of his loins

Keep me forever, tell me you want me

Light of your life, fire of your loins

Tell me you want me, gimme them coins



And I'm off to the races, cases

Of Bacardi chasers

Chasing me all over town



'Cause he knows I'm wasted, facing

Time again at Riker's

Island and I won't get out



Because I'm crazy, baby

I need you to come here and save me

I'm your little scarlet starlet

Singing in the garden

Kiss me on my open mouth



Now I'm off to the races, laces

Leather on my waist is

Tight and I am falling down

I can see your faces, shameless

Cipriani's basement

Love you, but I'm going down



God I'm so crazy, baby

I'm sorry that I'm misbehaving

I'm your little harlot starlet

Queen of Coney Island

Raising hell all over town

Sorry 'bout it



My old man is a thief, and

I'm gonna stay and pray with him till the end

But I trust in the decision of the law

To watch over us

Take him when he may, if he may

I'm not afraid to say

That I'd die without him

Who else is gonna put up with me this way?

I need you, I breathe you, I'll never leave you

They would rue the day, I was alone without you



You're lying with your gold chain on

Cigar hanging from your lips

I said, "Hon' you never looked so beautiful

As you do now my man"



And we're off to the races, places

Ready set the gate is down

And then we're going in

To Las Vegas, pay us

'Cause you know we'll race this

Honey it is time to spit

Boy you're so crazy, baby

I love you forever

Not maybe

You are my one true love

You are my one true love



You are my one true love
