A drink at the ritz

The rub of the green
And then off to queens head
A bookmakers friend
then that feeling of dread
A moment of regret
For his lightbulb moment
A drink at the ritz
And blame it all on the blitz
The neighbours banging on the wall
A roll of the dice
Then lying on the floor
The room spinning round
Turn up the music
And drown it all out
Alarm clocks ringing
Letting you know
It’s all about to start again
