Through ugly pints and Sunday breath 
Sit men whose stare is cold as death 
Through wide lapels and glued up eyes 
Through made up kids and made up wives 
Sitting in the heart of them 
Is a man who's not like other men 
Don't you know just who I am 
A nod, a wink, I am the domino man. 

And if you pull a double one 
I'll pack my bags and I'll be gone 
If you pull a three and four 
I'm flying off to Singapore 
Where women dance and tigers roar 
I'm lying on a distant shore 
I'm living life just as as I can 
A nod, a wink, another drink I am the domino man. 

Through a twenty deep screen of humorists 
Through slavering jaws and angry fists 
Through tales of mishap and the clickety-clack 
Is fully paid member of the brother of the tap 

Through heavy smoke and idle bets 
Through heaving lungs and heavy debts 
Sits a man who knows he can 
A nod, a wink, I am the domino man 

And if you pull a two and a six 
I'll pack my bags and take that risk 
And if you pull a four and five 
They'll never take this man alive 
I'll go far east and I'll survive 
The market streets I'll duck and dive 
I'm living life as fast as I can 
A nod, a wink, another drink I am the domino man 

And when he's off to sail the seven seas 
He just stay indoors or hides up trees 
He's been to places that you've never seen 
But his mind is blank and his passport's clean 

But if you pull a two and a six 
I'll pack my bags and take that risk 
And if you pull a four and five 
They'll never take this man alive 
I'll go far east and I'll survive 
The market street I'll duck and dive 
I'm living life just as fast as I can 
A nod, a wink, another drink, I am the domino man
