A song about gambling and taking risks in life.


To be shooting craps, or laying cards
Is of no concern to me
My only concern, is whether or not
it's double or nothing

It's full house, or no house at all
place your bets darling, or fold and withdraw
Coz when I roll out, nobody can bowl out
It's double or nothing

If you must play, then you must know
The rules of this house, to keep your stories tall
Load your craps, stuff your sleeves
And hide your cards from me


released May 15, 2018
Recorded live in studio with Byron Muller at Audio Nebula, Markon Studios, Johannesburg, South Africa.
