about

Written in 2015. The lyrics tell of a friend in need you could do without...

lyrics

He's a gambling man he steals from the state
He won't seek help ‘cos his habit's too great
He's always broke but cash is his need
His soul is full of greed

He'll work his way into your house
In the guise of a loyal friend
He'll bleed you dry in the blink of an eye
But won't return to make amends

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do

He's a gambling man he steals from the state
Loyalty to anyone is what he lacks
He borrows from those he calls his mates
But never pays 'em back

He'll feel no remorse for what he'll do
He only thinks about himself not you
He'll steal from you but quickly deny
And sell his spoils, what a guy

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do

He's a gambling man he steals from the state
He won't seek help his habit's too great
He's always broke but cash is his need
His soul is full of greed

He's got no respect, no respect for you
He'll steal your cash, that's just what he'll do
