Women think I'm tasty, they're always trying to waste me
Make me burn the candle right down
But baby, baby
I don't need no jewels in my crown

Cause all you women is low down gamblers
Cheating like I don't know how
Baby, I'm no crazy
There's fever in the fuck house now

This low down bitching got my poor feet itching
Don't you know the deuce is still wild?
Baby, I can't stay

You got to roll me and call me the tumbling dice

Always in a hurry, I never stop to worry
Don't see the time flashing by
Honey, got no money
I'm all sixes and sevens and nines

Say now, baby, I'm the rank outsider
You can be my partner in crime
Baby, I can't stay

Oh my, my, my, I'm the lone crap shooter
Playing the field every night
Baby, can't stay

Got to roll me...

...yeah

Keep on rolling

...yeah... baby, call me the tumbling dice, yeah
Oh baby, sweet little sugar... yeah...
