Charted: 42
  • Checkmate honey,
    Beat ya at your own damn game
    No dice honey,
    I'm livin' on the astral plane
    Feet's on the ground,
    And your head's goin' down the drain
    Oh, heads I win, tails you lose,
    To the never mind
    Where to draw the line

    An Indian summer,
    Carrie was all over the floor
    She was a wet net winner,
    And rarely ever left the store
    She'd sing and dance all night,
    And wrong all the right out of me
    Oh, pass me the vile and cross your fingers,
    It don't take time
    Know where to draw the line

    Hi ho silver,
    We were singin' all your cowboy songs
    Oh, you told Carrie,
    And promised her you wouldn't be long
    Heads I win, tails you lose,
    Lord it's such a crime
    No dice honey, you're the salt,
    You're the queen of the brine
    Checkmate honey,
    You're the only one who's got to choose
    Where to draw the line

    Checkmate, don't be late
    Take another pull
    That's right
    When you got to be yourself
    You're the boss, the toss
    The price, the dice
    Grab yourself a slice
    Know where to draw the line Writer/s: JOE PERRY, STEVEN TYLER
