A choice to make, a path to take:
To play the game or walk away?
<i>It's just some fun, no harm can come.</i>
The choice I made, my path did trade:
We played the game, then ran away.
<i>We tricked the bum, we fooled him good!</i>
The choice is mine, I raise my stein:
This game tonight? Oh yes, let's play!
<i>Get in your cars, the race is on!</i>
An easy choice, the path is clear,
I long to play a game tonight.
<i>She's lookin' hot, don't wait for me!</i>
There is no choice, I've but one path,
It's just for pleasure now I live.
<i>You guys are weak; come on, be men!</i>
They make the choice, arrest my path.
The cell is cold, as are their eyes.
<i>Oh stupid man, your "fun" mistakes
have left you,
One final choice: two paths, which way?
I cannot do this on my own.
<i>Here, take my hand, I'll lead you on.</i>
