Here's my story, it's sad but it's true
It's happening to me my friends
But don't let it happen to you

I got a rent collector knockin' at my door
I got no more credit at the grocery store
It's just a dose of bad luck that's goin' around
Will you still love me when the chips are down?

I got a daytime job that lasts all night
I got a color TV that's only black and white
I wouldn't know good luck from a hole in the ground
Will you still love me when the chips are down?

You will call me a loser, but I'd have to say no
I drew the joker instead of the ace
That's just the way it goes

I'm in trouble, I'm in a heck of a mess
Tryin' to look on the bright side
But things look bad I guess

I got no more money left in my bank
I got a run down radio with a leakin' tank
It's just a dose of bad luck that's goin' around
Will you still love me when the chips are down?

I got a three-piece suit, but two pieces don't match
I got a regular itch where I can't scratch
I wouldn't know good luck from a hole in the ground
Will you still love me when the chips are down?

You will claim I'm a loser, but I have to say no
I drew the joker instead of the ace
That's just the way it goes

This is my story, it's sad but it's true
It's happening to me my friends
But don't let it happen to you

I got eight months of unpaid bills
I can't pay 'em now and I know I never will
Maybe good times are knockin', but I don't hear the sound
So, will you still love me when the chips are down?
Will you still love me when the chips are down?
Say, will you still love me when the chips are....
