VERSE 1

 

As I’m driving in a pensive mood

 

Money troubles cloud my mind

 

I’m choosing between rent and food

 

More money I must find.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way……”

 

 

A loosing lottery ticket from Kentucky's Mega Millions with Megaplier from the Kentucky Lottery.

VERSE 2

 

And I see a dollar lying there,

 

Green, on the sidewalk ahead

 

I hesitate to pick it up

 

Doesn’t buy a load of bread.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way."

 

 

VERSE 3

 

When the jackpots small I’m holding out.

 

Just a couple bucks I’ll play.

 

But when it’s past a hundred mill

 

Then I’m in all the way.

 

A quick pick ticket from the Hoosier Lotto Plus drawing

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way"

 

 

VERSE 4

 

When we play in teams you know we sense

 

More camaraderie at work.

 

But if numbers match this job’s past tense.

 

Austin’s where we’ll go berserk.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way.”

 

A lottery ticket for Kentucky's Powerball Power Play, which keeps our best and most deserving students in the Bluegrass State.

 

VERSE 5

 

Heading south bound on I-35.

 

Soon a Vanderbilt I’ll be.

 

I signed up for that lump sum deal

 

Cause waiting’s not for me.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way.”
