  • I would die before I divorce you
    I'd take a thousand thumps for my love
    'Cause you kiss a lucky horseshoe
    Stuck it in my boxing glove
    'Cause anyone who will see us
    Through our victory and done defeat
    Knows that I'll take you to the cleaners
    If you come between the cheats

    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh

    My husband is the finest handsome hustler
    And he still make this housewife blush
    So I'm holding my hand in his
    I'm sitting on the royal flush
    Women drink him in, swimming in his green eyes
    Then go home and catch the chips you got
    And take a bad beat to ooh to boat oh!
    The jack of hearts is my jackpot

    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh

    Catch me on, have to ?
    And I know as my heart beats
    There's a winning secret to both
    And it's sworn between the cheats

    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
    Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh Writer/s: AMY WINEHOUSE, SALAAM REMI
