Ace of Spades

If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
You win some, lose some, it's - all - the same to me
The pleasure is to play, it makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades
 
Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
Going with the flow, it's all a game to me,
Seven or Eleven, snake eyes1 watching you,
Double up or quit, double stakes or split,
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades
 
You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby,
I don't wanna live forever,
And don't forget the joker!
 
Pushing up the ante, I know you've got to see me,
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand2 again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

  • 1. In games played with two dice, the roll of two tips is named this way after its similarity with two eyes. Usually it has a meaning of "bad luck" due to the fact of being the lowest score in most games.
  • 2. The dead man's hand is a poker hand called this way for supposedly being the cards that Wild Bill Hickok held when he was murdered at Deadwood, Dakota in 1876. Although there's no agreement about the exact cards that comprise the hand, it's accepted that it's composed of both black aces and eights, with the queen of hearts or nine of diamonds as kicker. But according to the Adams Museum at Deadwood, which claims to have the actual cards held by Hickok, this hand would be: ace of diamonds, ace of clubs, eight of clubs, eight of hearts and the queen of hearts.
