Just when you're in the "money" it ends with a demise
Just when you're feeling "funny" it starts up a surprise

Just when you're in the "kismet" it ends with a despair
Just when you're feeling "beset" it starts up a repair

Just when you're in the "fancy" it ends with a knockout
Just when you're feeling "chancy" it starts up a new route

Just when you're in the "whisky" it ends with a headache
Just when you're feeling "risky" it starts up a remake

Just when you're in the "album" it ends with a lament
Just when you're feeling "ho-hum"
it starts up an event

Just when you're in the "clover" it ends with an amen
Just when you're feeling "over" it starts up yet again
