she's always game for playing cards
she'll snatch them off the shelf
although i'd like to hold her hand
she holds her hand herself
.
"it's jacks or better", she'll exclaim
although my name is jim
and i might win a game or two
but odds of that are slim
.
she has a lovely poker face
and never bats an eye
she raises up the ante
till it's "uncle", that i cry
.
she likes to hold 'em texas syle
clutched tightly to her chin
she'll raise me with a sawbuck
when i've just laid down a fin
.
though i'm a kind of rummy guy
she says that's sacrilege
and it would never cross her mind
to take a stab at bridge
.
those jokers aren't enough for her
wild deuces must apply
she raises up the ante
till it's "uncle", that i cry
