Lana Del Rey – Off to the Races

Off to the races

My old man is a bad man but
I can't deny the way he holds my hand,
And he grabs me, he has me by my heart.

He doesn't mind I have a Las Vegas past,
He doesn't mind
I have a LA crass way about me,
He loves me with every beat of his
cocaine heart

Swimming pool glimmering, darling,
White bikini off with my red nail polish.
Watch me in the swimming pool
bright blue ripples,
You sittin', sippin' on your black Cristal, yeah

Light of my life, fire of my loins,
Be a good baby do what I want.
Light of my life, fire of my loins,
Give me them gold coins, give me them coins.

And I'm off to the races,
Cases of Bacardi chasers
Chasin' me all over town.
'Cause he knows I'm wasted,
Facing time again in Rikers
Island and I won't get out.

Because I'm crazy, baby,
I need you to come here
And save me.
I'm your little scarlet starlet
Singin' in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for you.

My old man is a tough man but
He's got a soul as sweet as blood red jam and
He shows me he knows me,
every inch of my tar black soul

He doesn't mind I have a flat,
broke-down life.
In fact, he says he thinks it's what
he might like about me, admires me,
the way I roll like a rolling stone

He likes to watch me in the glass room, bathroom,
Chateau Marmont, slippin' on my red dress,
putting on my makeup.
Glass room perfume, cognac, lilac fumes.
Says it feels like heaven to him

Light of his life, fire of his loins,
Keep me forever, tell me you own me.
Light of your life, fire of your loins,
Tell me you own me, gimme them coins.

And I'm off to the races,
Cases of Bacardi chasers
Chasin' me all over town.
'Cause he knows I'm wasted,
Facing time again in Rikers
Island and I won't get out.

Because I'm crazy, baby,
I need you to come here
And save me.
I'm your little scarlet starlet
Singin' in the garden,
Kiss me on my open mouth,
Ready for you.

Yo, I'm off to the races,
Laces, leather on my waist
Is tight and I am falling down
I can see your face is shameless,
Cipriani's basement.
Love you but I'm going down.

God, I'm so crazy, baby,
I'm sorry that I'm misbehaving.
I'm your little harlot, starlet,
Queen of Coney Island.
Raisin' hell all over town.
Sorry 'bout it.

My old man is a thief and I'm
Gonna stay and pray with him till the end.
But I trust in the decision of the Lord
To watch over us
Take him when he may if he may.

I'm not afraid to say that I'd die without him.
Who else is going to put up with me this way?
I need you I breathe you
I'd never leave you.
They would rue the day I was alone
without you

You're lying with your gold chain on,
Cigar hangin' from your lips.
I said, "Hun, you never looked
So beautiful as you do now my man."

And we're off to the races, places.
Ready, set, the gate is
Down and then we're going in
To Las Vegas, chaos, casino oasis.
Honey it is time to spin.

Boy, you're so crazy, baby
I love you forever,
Not maybe
You are my one true love
You are my one true love
You are my one true love
