Lucky Bets - The secret to winning at gambling

Updated on June 17, 2010

Oh, gambler, listen close.
I’ll tell you the trick to earning your fortune.

Luck likes sweet.

Bring on the treacle and luck will cling to you.
Douse yourself with honey.
Wash your hair in maple.
Wear clothes made from sugar cane with candy ribbons for decoration.

Cloak yourself with a molasses vest.
That’s the trick that works the best.

But, remember luck is a fickle bird who offers no guarantee.
So, when it leaves you short of cash and covered with flies,
don’t come crying to me.
