lyrics

Got a lucky star now you're bound to earn big, you're earnin big baby
You're hooked on a winning streak, well like a king i'll live now
My hearts are heavy cos the queen she won't show no
I got the aces waiting up my sleeve though

She says just read them
Then weep to me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set you won't set me free

And I got the devil, she's sitting across from me
She's got her hooves out but now we're playing footsie
The Joker and the Jack, her left and right hand man
I've got a little hope, but i'mma do what I can (tonight)

She says just read them
Then weep to me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set you won't set me free

* * * * * * * *
Well, well, well
What do I have before me?
I'm observing something very peculiar
Is that how you try and woo a woman?
Keep searching those pockets baby

* * * * * * * *

But now i'm weeping, she's taken it all from me
I say you're a cruel mama darlin won't set, you won't set
You're the cruelest mama darlin' won't set, you won't set
You're the cruelest mama darlin' won't set, you won't set me free
