lyrics

One look at these cards
You'd think the dealer rigged the deck
But when it's you against the house
That's what you come to expect
The best refuse to fold
Even when the chips are down
So I'll be asking for another
Till they put me in the ground

Dealer hit me one more time
I'm fairly certain I am dying
So how's about another hit
Bury me with two cards upon my chest
Dealer hit me one more time
I'm fairly certain I am dying
So how's about another hit
Ace of spades and queen of hearts with my last breathe

They say
There's enlightenment in pain
And all my belly aching
Is such a waste
Try and laugh at the expense
Of this crazy old world
And enjoy what you can
Till the whole things spoiled

I'll never be a man
Of possessions and luxury
But I try and always
Keep good company
Sit down and tell me
How you sweat, bleed, laugh, love, fail, and cry
Otherwise I'd rather drink alone tonight
