Off To The Races lyrics:

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 L.A. 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
Oh 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
Gimme them gold coins
Gimme them coins

And I’m off to the races
Cases of Bacardi chasers
Chasing me all over town
‘Cause he knows I’m wasted
Facing time again at 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
Singing in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth
Ready for you

My old man is a tough man
But he 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 rollin’ stone

Likes to watch me in the glass room, bathroom
Chateau Marmont, slippin’ on my red dress, puttin’ 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
Chasing me all over town
‘Cause he knows I’m wasted
Facing time again at 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
Singing in the garden
Kiss me on my open mouth

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
Raising hell all over town
Sorry ’bout it

My old man is a thief
And I’m gonna stay and pray with him ’til 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 gonna 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 hanging from your lips
I said, “Hon’, 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 now we’re goin’ 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

Written by Elizabeth Woolridge Grant (a/k/a Lana Del Rey) / Tim Larcombe
