Baby calls me Mr. Sweepstake,
There's no gamble that I won't make,
I take a chance every now and then,
If you never play, you’re never gonna win
I’d like to land the big one once and a while, maybe even one time, but
I’ll have to settle for a smaller cut, five bucks says I make this ten-foot putt!
One time, come on Lady, give me some Luck
Just one time, let me win the big one then, I’ll give it all up!
One time, I’m going all in, make me a rich man
One time, do me a favor, I know that you can.
Well when the odds get better, the bets get odder,
If you’re gonna bet the big one, it better hold water,
I always say, in a game of Texas Hold’em,
If you ain’t got the cards, you really ought to fold ‘em
But I don’t listen to my own advice, the size of the pot, just too nice
I make a big bet, table calls my bluff, need one last card 'til I strut my stuff
One time, come on, Dealer, show me that Ace
One time, down on my knees, begging for grace,
One time, been sitting so long, I been betting so hard,
One time, just this one time, just that card!
(gimme an ace, gimme an ace, gimme an ACE!) Awwwwwwwww!!!
That was my last hold 'em I got busted
Evenings home with Baby, 'til I'm more trusted
But our Love grows stronger every day
It's kinda like poker in a funny way
See, I played Love weak, now I'm all in
Night time comes, the games begin
Baby gives me all the action I can take
Playing crazy eights, fifty cent stake!
