lyrics

Lady Luck got acres low and high
Throw you any colour any card you can choose
But when her dealer is a crooked guy
Even when you win still you will lose

Don’t stop to wonder
Can’t afford to go under
Got to keep control until the end of the day

So though life is a bitch
And you will never be rich
Don’t throw your hand while the game’s still in play

Freeze the river but no-one skates forever
Keep your eyes wide open don’t believe in free lunch
One day soon you will dance on the moon
But till then be ready beware of the crunch

Friends can be nice
But their hearts can be ice
Even while they’re smiling they can blow you away

So though life is a bitch
And you will never be rich
Don’t throw your hand while the game’s still in play

Dealing diamonds is a heart breaking trade
See the gambler shuffle with the queen up his sleeves
Busts your bid wide open with a club or a spade
Calls your king a joker with a smile as he leaves

Blackjack’s for fools
Solitaire rules
Keep your poker face on hold for all of your stay
And though life is a bitch
And you will never be rich
Don’t throw your hand while the games still in play
