Gamblers Prayer From Marty Allen & Steve Rossi - Hello Dere!

I remember this gambler's prayer from an old Marty Allen & Steve Rossi vinyl album (circa mid sixties?) appropriately titled "Hello, Dere!":



Now I lay me down to slumber,
I pray the Lord I hit my number,
If I should die before I wake,
Put five bucks on number eight.



Well, Mery Christmas (or Hannakah) to all, and to all a good night!!

Amen to that, brother!
I like your version better, Dave, but of course, I can't relate to it at all ;)
(Jonathan Coulton is da bomb!)
Speaking Of Da Bomb - Happy Hannakah!
