Lyrics

Hey buddy, couldn’t help but see you don’t look well
Had a rough day, huh? Boy, I sure can tell
Now, I’m no doctor, but I think that I can cure that frown
And if I were a doctor I’d prescribe a night on the town

I know a little place; not far from here
And I can guarantee the best time ya had all year
All the ladies and the gents and folks outside & between
Agree this spot is at the top of the social scene

I didn’t introduce myself, just call me Ace
Nice to meet ya, I’m the manager that runs this place
The Grand Avalon Casino raises the bar
With all the glitz befitting of a Hollywood star

Choose a game to play — try any one!
The excitement’s at a fever pitch, come join the fun
You say you’re down on your luck— now don’t you fear!
Cause the losers on the street can win a fortune in here

Say 1, 2, hey! It’ll be okay
Just come on in and follow along
First game’s on me, won’t cost a thing
Roulette or blackjack—dice or slots

I say-ah 1, 2, hey! Step up and play!
Our doors are open dusk to dawn
Every pauper has a chance to become a king
You can find yours here at the Avalon!

The roulette starts spinning with a click & clack
Find the gold that glints between the red & black
Give a handshake to a bandit and let ‘im roll
Watch the nickels start pourin’ like a waterfall

You got it now! I knew you’d love this joint
Jackpots abound — we never disappoint
With music, booze and games, anyone can unwind
At the Grand Avalon, you’ll have a hell of a time!

A quarter past three, you start to look for the door
My buddy, can’t ya tell it ain’t there no more?
There’s a question in your eyes, so let me give you a clue:
See, there’s still the little matter of the debt I’m due

Remember how I said this wouldn’t cost a dime?
Well, that’s cause you’re the payment— you’re already mine!
Take a break, have a drink, cash your chips, my friend—
It’s the party of a lifetime, and you’ll play ’til the end!

Say 1, 2, hey! It’ll be okay
Just come on in and follow along
First game’s on me, won’t cost a thing
Roulette or blackjack—dice or slots

I say-ah 1, 2, hey! Step up and play!
Our doors are open dusk to dawn
We’ll keep on going ’til the judgement day
So come join us here at the Avalon!
