        Just one thing I can not do
        Place one bet, it would lead to two
        Is that a problem? Does it hurt?
        To not risk losing one more shirt?
        Not at all, it lets me live
        And enjoy the rest of what life has to give.
        The many, many things I treasure
        That give my life so much pleasure
        The family, friends, things big and small
        I can now enjoy them all
        Theatre, diving. just feeding the birds
        It’s hard to put into words
        My life, my home, my wife, my dog
        I’d never have them with a gambling fog
        I can try new things, some I like.
        Should I gamble? On your bike!
        Now I have the things I need
        Because I decided not to feed
        The addiction that is in me
        It can wait, and go hungry
        Just one thing that’s not so much
        When it gives me a life I can really touch
        Just one thing I can not do
        Place one bet and nor can you.
