Opportunity A.Riggs 1995 All rights reserved

The opportunity might not come again
Count your blessings, can we deal you in
Leave your dignity at the door
Mock integrity, less is more
Minor celebrity on a downward slide
Makes his living selling his pride
Cardboard cutout with shifty eyes
Fill your pockets with money for lies

Tabloid headlines tarnish the stars
Statue of Elvis has been found on mars
Three-headed baby or so it seems
Born to parents in the Philippines
Alien creatures from outer space
Dropped in to visit the human race
Common denominator, here’s the line
You’ll fool most of the people, all of the time

Caveat emptor, so they say
At least one sucker’s born every day
Pay your money then you stand in line
Take your chances every time
Snake oil salesman knows his lines
Florida real estate, solid gold mine
Step right up, wont you gather round
Make a stake, put your money down
