Jackpot, uh split shot 
I'm in line doing fine 
This snapper I've got the bounty 
Blessed with the amount, we 
Never guess, the best is yet to come 
Came to rock the fucking block 
If you don't come new 
Then you might get dropped 
I think it's strange 
The thing's the same, carry on 
Season's deranged 
Like the one we call will be gone 

With the touch of my wand 
You are my God, you're my guardian 
I hit the jackpot, I'm the lucky one 
My fortune endless, never coming undone, uh 
Moving, I'm a nomad 
Another girl's voice is the noises rad 
My treasure is soul, aren't you glad 
I get psychedelic with a pen and a pad 

Rooming up in no it's about that critical 
Find it difficult to be so analytical 
I'm filled with hope 
The rope it won't hang you 
Sit your ass down and come in rangoon 
Right about now it's about that time 
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime 
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior 
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for 

Woo 
Everybody jump 

[Chorus:]
What are the chances 
The odds must be enhanced 
It's a wild card that you threw 
Of all the places to end up 
It amazes me 
After all we've been through 

[Bridge]
Jackpot 
All the people say whoa 
Jackpot 
Let me hear you say whoa 
Jackpot 
Uh, what, whoa 
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot 
Whoa 

We hit the jackpot 
The lotto, lucky dot 
So the path that we tread 
We pave the bars of gold 
Now we got it 
How we bought it 
Sweating from stage to stage 
A lot of it 
And if we won the chance to dance 
And do it all again 
We wouldn't change a thing 
There is no other end 
The pinnacle we reached 
We knew it was possible 
How we got here 
Overcoming obstacles 

Right about now it's about that time 
You know I crack the coconut and I twist up the lime 
I've been on the road like a Seminole warrior 
Passing up the tales like the one they wrote the story for 
Reside West Coast from the Mid West 
Take what you like and fuck all the rest, man 
We only enter in one contest 
That we made up ourselves 
That's to be the 311'est 

Woo 
Everybody jump 

[Chorus x2]
What are the chances 
The odds must be enhanced 
It's a wild card that you threw 
Of all the places to end up 
It amazes me 
After all we've been through 

[Bridge]
Jackpot 
All the people say whoa 
Jackpot 
Let me hear you say whoa 
Jackpot 
Uh, what, whoa 
Give 'em what you got 'til you hit that spot 
Whoa 

Woo 
To the death of dismay 
Uh 
Disc jock to the truth
