Turn of the Dice – Julie Matthews
From the album ‘Lies and Alibis’ Pat Shaw and Julie Matthews


I’ve been sitting here watching you staring at the wall
Looking for the future in a crystal ball
Pinning your hopes on what might be
Hoping that it comes with a guarantee
Wasting your life on nothing but worry
Before you know it it’s gone in a hurry
Here’s a piece of good advice
Roll with every turn of the dice

Step right up step right in
Give it the best shot that you can
Be prepared to pay the price
Roll with every turn of the dice

You worry `bout the house and the car and the nine to five
You sit back waiting for bad times to arrive
Trouble might be round the corner
Nothing you can do could ever warn you
You got to learn to take it all as it comes
Here’s a piece of good advice
Roll with every turn of the dice

Step right up step right in
Give it the best shot that you can
Be prepared to pay the price
Roll with every turn of the dice
