‘If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man.

You win some, lose some, all the same to me.

The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say,

I don’t share your greed, the only card I need is the Ace of Spades



If this card comes calling.

Be mindful of its friends.

Don’t jump to conclusions.

It might not mean the end.


It could just be a visitor.

Who takes away your breath.

Don’t make rash conclusions.

When prophesying death.


It could be a decision.

One that you must make.

It could also be a warning.

Before you make mistakes.


‘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 for ever.’
