I was deceived into a gamble, lost all the way and I'm broke.
Deprived of everything and cast away penniless.
Hey, dance, dance, over such a silly story.
Tell me where to go, I asked again and again.
They said "there," I went there, "this way," I came this way.
Oh, what a surprise, I've arrived at the middle of a river-bush.
The river blocks me from going;
hey, dance on, it's a silly story.
