  • Now, some believe in God
    And some believe in gold
    And some still believe in witchcraft
    Least that's what I'm told
    Now, I believe in luck
    'Cause that's what I've plenty of
    And I believe in women
    And sharin' lots of love

    It's such a beautiful madness
    It's bigger than life
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    It's bigger than life (bigger than life)

    That's why they call it "snakes and ladders"
    You watch 'em rise, you watch 'em fall
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    It's bigger than life (bigger than life)

    Welcome to the new Dark Ages
    Take off your hat and stay a while
    And who would have thought it would become a crime
    Turnin' straw into gold and water into wine?
    Go ahead, fly into my web
    Let me take you for a ride
    And come on darlin', step right up
    It's all goin' wrong inside

    It's such a beautiful madness
    It's bigger than life
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    It's bigger than life (bigger than life)

    That's why they call it "snakes and ladders"
    You watch 'em rise, you watch 'em fall
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    Now, I don't like to blow my own horn but

    Oh, it looks like I'm in too deep
    And I can't sleep
    Now maybe it's depression, maybe it's the dope
    Chances are it's a little bit of both

    It's such a beautiful madness
    It's bigger than life (hmm)
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    It's bigger than life (it's bigger than life)
    That's why they call it "snakes and ladders"
    You watch 'em rise, you watch 'em fall
    It's such a beautiful madness (beautiful madness)
    It's bigger than life
    Bigger than life (bigger than life) Writer/s: Howard Simon Bernstein, Robbie Robertson, Robert Robertson
