Piesne hazardných hráčov


Hazardní hráči sú zvláštna komunita ľudí, okolo ktorých sa od dávna vytvára aj zvláštna kultúra, umenie a zberateľstvo. Jedinečný svet točiaci sa okolo kasín a hazardných hier.

Niekoľko príkladov piesni, ktoré sa dotýkajú prostredia hazardných hier:



Muž, ktorý rozbil bank v Monte Carle
(The man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo)


The man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo
(spieva Charles Coborn)

Pieseň pochádzajúca z 19. storočia. Údajne bola vytvorená práve aby ospievala skutočného muža, ktorý rozbil bank v Monte Carle. Zložil ju Fred Gilbert v roku 1892. Inšpiráciou pre pieseň by mal byť muž menom Charles Deville Wells (1841-1926) - hazardný hráč, ktorý opakovane rozbíjal bank v Monte Carle. Existuje ešte domnienka, že by to mohol byť hráč Joseph Jagger, ktorý získal slávu v roku 1873, ale keďže pieseň bola zložená až v roku 1892, je pravdepodobnejšou inšpiráciou pán Wells.

V júli 1891 pán Wells odišiel do Monte Carla s hotovosťou 4000 libier, počas jedenásť hodín strávených v kasíne postupne rozbil bank na niekoľkých ruletových stoloch a navyhrával tak cez milión frankov. Pri jednom sedení mal až 23 prípadov výhry z 30 po sebe idúcich kôl. Pán Wells sa vrátil do Monte Carla v novembri toho istého roku a opäť vyhral. Získal ďalší milión frankov za tri dni, kde tiež mal aj neuveriteľné výhry na číslo v päť krát po sebe idúcich kolách.

(Čo vtedy znamenalo tzv. rozbitie banku? Každý hrací stôl mal určitú hotovosť - bank, napríklad cca. sto tisíc frankov a viac, ak hráč pomocou výhier túto hotovosť stola získal, znamenalo to, že rozbil bank. Taký mŕtvy stôl bol potom prikrytý čiernym súknom; tento zvyk môžeme zbadať aj v jednej filmovej ukážke: Velkolepí hráči rulety v 19. st. - rozbil bank )



Text piesne (Anglicky):

The man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo

I've just got here, through Paris, from the sunny southern shore;
I to Monte Carlo went, just to raise me winter's rent.
Dame Fortune smiled upon me as she'd never done before,
And I've now such lots of money, I'm a gent.
Yes, I've now such lots of rhino, I'm a gent.
As I walk along the Bois Boolong
With an independent air
You can hear the girls declare
"He must be a Millionaire."
You can hear them sigh and wish to die,
You can see them wink to the other eye
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo.

I stay indoors till after lunch, and then my daily walk
To the great Triumphal Arch is one grand triumphal march,
Observed by each observer with the keenness of a hawk,
I'm a mass of money, linen, silk and starch -
I'm a mass of money, linen, silk and stahahahahrch.

As I walk along the Bois Boolong
With an independent air
You can hear the girls declare
"He must be a Millionaire."
You can hear them sigh and wish to die,
You can see them wink the other eye
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo.

I patronised the tables at the Monte Carlo hell
Till they hadn't got a sou for a Christian or a Jew;
I then flew off to Paris for the charms of mad'moiselle,
Who's the loadstone of my heart - what can I do,
When with twenty tongues she swears that she'll be true?
(slurred)
As I walk along the Bois Boolong
With an independent air
You can hear the girls declare
"He must be a Millionaire."
You can hear them sigh and wish to die,
You can see them wink to the other eye
At the man who broke the bank at Monte Carlo.







Viva Las Vegas - Elvis Presley (1964)


Text piesne (Anglicky):

Viva Las Vegas

Bright light city gonna set my soul
Gonna set my soul on fire
Got a whole lot of money that's ready to burn,
So get those stakes up higher
There's a thousand pretty women waitin' out there
And they're all livin' devil may care
And I'm just the devil with love to spare
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more
Than the twenty-four hours in the day
'Cause even if there were forty more
I wouldn't sleep a minute away
Oh, there's black jack and poker and the roulette
wheel
A fortune won and lost on ev'ry deal
All you need's a strong heart and a nerve of steel
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin'
And your one armbandits crashin'
All those hopes down the drain
Viva Las Vegas turnin' day into nighttime
Turnin' night into daytime
If you see it once
You'll never be the same again

I'm gonna keep on the run
I'm gonna have me some fun
If it costs me my very last dime
If I wind up broke up well
I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
I'm gonna give it ev'rything I've got
Lady luck please let the dice stay hot
Let me shout a seven with ev'ry shot
Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas,
Viva, Viva Las Vegas
