lyrics

Hold your cards up to your chest
I'm tempted now to try and guess
And the fool who shows his hand should slit his throat
You got the king the queen is mine
I've got the jack the ten the nine
But the eight's a slave chained up beneath the deck

I've only got a pair of threes but I ain't gonna fold
I know that you were bluffing for your trembling hands they told
Let's lay em on the table now so everyone will know
That all your chips are mine and now you're broke
I hesitate to tell you what you look like
But if you don't find a mirror then you might die

I'm pulling lashes from my eyes
Like flower pedals to decide
If you love me or if you love me not
Now I pulled all my lashes out
But I'm bathing in a tub of doubt
Come pull the plug I'm ready to get out

I've only got a pair of threes but I ain't gonna fold
I know that you were bluffing for your trembling hands they told
Let's lay em on the table now so everyone will know
That all your chips are mine and now you're broke
I hesitate to tell you what you look like
But if you don't find a mirror then you might die
