  • How was I to know?
    It's a crazy thing
    I showed you my hand
    And you still let me win

    And who was I to say
    That this was meant to be?
    The road that was broken
    Brought us together

    And I know you could fall for a thousand kings
    And hearts that would give you a diamond ring
    When I fold, you see the best in me
    The joker and the queen

    I've been played before
    If you hadn't guessed
    So I kept my cards close to my foolproof vest
    But you called my bluff (but you called my bluff)
    And saw through all my tales (saw through all my tales)
    And then you went all in
    And we left together

    And I know
    You think that what makes a king
    Is gold, a palace, and diamond rings
    When I fold, you see the best in me
    The joker and the queen

    And I know you could fall for a thousand kings
    And hearts that would give you a diamond ring
    When I fold, you saw the best in me
    The joker and the queen

  • Th London from LondonDid Ed officially sample Daniel Johnston's The Story of an Artist for The Joker and the King? Piano and style awfully similar!!!!
  • Neil Eaglesfan from UkAgree with Mr Stuart Robertson. very very very very very very very similar. Surely this should be challenged?
  • Mr Stuart Robertson from East LothianHas anyone compared The joker and the queen with the Eagles song "It's your world now" . It's featured on the album Long road out of Eden on disc 2 track 9. Very very similar tune !!
  • PkNotting hill
  • Jenny from LiverpoolThis tune is off a musical film too and I can’t think what it is but it’s doing my head in. I need to know.
