  • Oh my
    20 throw down in my fist of rage
    And the man to my left has folded down
    Well Johnny doubled up with a royal flush

    I had three Jacks and a pair of nines
    My mind is turning, just two shots more
    There's not much left to play
    Well then dude walks in, black hat on top

    What am I, if I'm lucky
    Wasn't a county cop
    'Cause I'm just runnin' out of time

    Who's up for game two
    What to do
    My wallet's gettin' thin
    And I just lost my watch last night
    Well I gotta problem

    Just one answer
    Gotta throw it all down
    And kiss it goodbye
    Yeah!

    That was a crazy game of poker (That was a crazy game of poker)
    I lost it all (I lost it all)

    But someday I'll be back again
    And I, never to fold. (Never to fold)

    Who's up for game three
    I can barely see the bourbon drowning next to me
    And I just lost it all
    Well there's a man sittin' next to me
    Red, was smiling

    'Cause it's funny
    I don't have no money tonight
    Yeah

    That was a crazy game of poker (That was a crazy game of poker)
    I lost it all (I lost it all)

    But someday I'll be back again
    And I, never to fold. (Never to fold)

    Bop bop bop
    I say now skittlee dat dat,
    Well how bout that?
    I'm coming out the front never coming out the back
    And I walked into the bar yesterday
    'Cause I had something to do, something to say

    And Johnny walked in right behind me
    And I didn't turn around
    'Til I heard the sound of his feet
    Falling on the ground

    I looked over my shoulder and I saw a clown
    And I said what'cha doin' in the bar tonight.
    So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
    He looked at me with a face full of fright

    And I said, how 'bout a revolution?
    And he said right.
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah jah jah
    Jehovah!

    And I said, what'cha looking at?
    He hit me across the face with a bat
    I grabbed my .45 and I said let's get out and go
    So he opened the door and said
    Do what you're here for

    I said I'm wandering round the road four to four
    And I said I been walking
    For about a thousand years.
    And my feet are growing tired

    My eyes a little wired
    Don't know what to do unless I retire
    And he just said let's play some crazy poker

    So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
    He looked at me with a face full of fright
    And I said, how 'bout a revolution?
    And he said right.
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say die
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
    Day day oh!

    I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
    I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
    But I'm not gonna quit and I'm not gonna stop
    I don't give a shit cause I got the drop

    Johnny just got two eyes just like mine
    And I'm feeling kinda funky, kinda fine
    And I drank a bottle of whiskey, 'fore I came
    Came to the bar to see what's the same

    I saw my man named Johnny sittin' across the table from me
    And to my left was a man, he had no chin
    Didn't really think about starting a scene
    The man to my right wasn't feeling kinda nice

    He looked kinda mad and I felt bad
    Because I took his money last night it's kinda funny
    But now I'm just struggling
    I need a honey-bunny.

    I don't know what to say anymore
    So I'm just gonna go out, anywho
    So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
    He looked at me with a face full of fright

    And I said, how bout a revolution?
    And he said right.
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah
    I say of, you say a
    I say revolution, and you say jah jah jah
