Michael
Ice cubes on a red hot stove will melt, and I'll bet ya,

Jermaine
A drowning man bet his first words are help, and I'll bet ya,

Tito
If you bet on a horse and the horse don't win, you lose, and I'll bet ya,

Jackie
If you try, to sit on air, you're gonna fall, and I'll bet ya,

Michael
If you want a winning hand,
If you want a perfect man,

Jackson 5
I'll bet you never lose with love,
I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
Bet you never lose with love,
I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,

Jermaine
Take a car,

Tito
Without fuel,

Michael
I it ain't gonna move,

Jermaine
A and I'll bet ya,

Michael
A carpenter can't build his house without any tools, and I'll bet ya,

Tito
If your shoes are too small, they hurt your feet, and I'll bet ya,

Jermaine
And you can't know what's goin' on, if you're asleep, oh I'll bet ya,

Michael
If you want a winning hand,
If you want a perfect man,

Jackson 5
I'll bet you never lose with love,
I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,

Bet you never lose with love,
I know I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,

Ooooh, (ooooh)
Aaargh, aaargh

I'll bet you never lose with love,
I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya,
Bet you never lose with love,
I know I'm gonna win, and I'll bet ya etc
