lyrics

They holla bookie,  bookie/ now I'm lookin' lookin'/numbers game' play the rates /bets cookin' cookin'/as I'm standing by the bar watching regulars come/best to tally up the count 'fore the game has begun/ know the field, and players/ and the habits of play/ got a system so consistent that it never would sway/ but as everything'll change, I adapted a way/ use the blue collar gamblers and folks everyday/ start to see a different caliber/comin' to bet with me/ they only bet the sure shots/ its unexpectedly surprisin' and getting me/ feeling so uneasy/
risin' the feeling that chance just may beat me/They eyes as cold as the cash, hits the table top/ Starin' harder than a target 'fore ya take a shot./ Bet you they believin they deal with a small fry / i get the hint they needa fall guy/ nope!
- Chorus -
They holla bookie, bookie / now Im lookin' lookin'/getting' nervous, how the ball game's cookin' cookin'/and the stakes hit the ceiling when the rookies bookin/every fiber of my being feels I'm gettin' took-en/What is this?/ Whats real?/ I try to separate it/ But I think you know the deal/ runnings harder than steel/ The game starts ill/ Nothing follows a pattern/ No one playin' the same/ Making me ask what happened and bigger players is snapping / Money is such a factor/ They lookin' for me and rewarding killers for capture./ all from a bet they placing/  and tension increasing after/all of my hunches right/ I say/ Dammit its a disaster!/ no where that I can turn/ fears fillin' my eyes/ knew that somethin' was up so I'm really not to surprised/ soaring top of my trade till they target me out the sky/ damn, i think they found they fall guy/ nope
-Chorus
