Lyrics

  • Ice cubes on a red hot stove will melt, and I'll bet ya,
  • A drowning man bet his first words are help, and I'll bet ya,
  • If you bet on a horse and the horse don't win, you lose, and I'll bet ya,
  • If you try, to sit on air, you're gonna fall, and I'll bet ya,
  • If you want a winning hand,
  • If you want a perfect man,
  • I'll bet you never lose with love,
  • I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
  • Bet you never lose with love,
  • I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
  • Take a car, without fuel, it ain't gonna move, and I'll bet ya,
  • A carpenter can't build his house without any tools, and I'll bet ya,
  • If your shoes are too small, they hurt your feet, and I'll bet ya,
  • And you can't know what's goin' on, if you're asleep, oh I'll bet ya,
  • If you want a winning hand,
  • If you want a perfect man,
  • I'll bet you never lose with love,
  • I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
  • Bet you never lose with love,
  • I know I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
  • Ooooh, (ooooh)
  • Aaargh, aaargh
  • I'll bet you never lose with love,
  • I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
  • Bet you never lose with love,
  • I know I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya etc
