  • Sittin' at a poker table holdin' kings and threes
    So far lady luck, hm, sure has been good to me
    I should quit while I'm ahead, but I'll hang around instead
    And the dealer asked, what would you settle for?
    And I said, just a little more

    I need just a little more
    A little more than I've got
    And I've got all that I can spend and I can't spend it fast enough
    But if the truth be known, I can't quit on my own
    And I spent all my life waitin' for just a little more

    Havin' a drink here on my favorite stool
    I know that a couple has turned into a few
    And the bartender says to me, son, I think it's time you leave
    If you don't mind headin' for the door
    But I ask, for just a little more

    I need just a little more, a little more than I've had
    And I've had all that a man should and I should leave and not come back
    But if the truth be known I can't quit on my own
    And I spent all my life waitin' for just a little more

    Too many late nights and all of the above
    You've tried to help me for so long
    But you finally had enough
    And you tell me that you're gonna leave
    As you're holding on to me
    But before you let me go, hold me just a little more

    I need just a little more
    A little more time
    Time for me to end all these hurtin' ways of mine
    And Lord, I know you give me all the strength that I need
    But I'm down here on my knees prayin' for
    Just a little more
