Poker
Electric Light Orchestra Lyrics


Away, the joker's closing in,
Reform and they will win,
The light is fading fast.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

The girls come crawling on all fours,
Banging on locked doors,
High cards call the tune.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

Play me another hand,
Loose everything I am,
Until we meet again.

The ace, that's hiding up your sleeve,
Will cause the world to grieve,
The love you had is gone,
I know you know, they know, we all know.

The dream, in every player's heart,
To win it all not part,
They lie awake at night,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

The game, where gamblers rule the night,
And get your blood they might,
The joker's closin' in,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

Away, the jokers's closing in,
Reform and they will win,
The light is fading fast.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

The girls come crawling on all fours,
Banging on locked doors,
High cards call the tune.
I know, you know, they know, we all know,
Everybody's gonna burn down.

Play me another hand,
Loose everything I am,
Until we meet again.

The ace, that's hiding up your sleeve,
Will cause the world to grieve,
The love you had is gone,
I know you know, they know, we all know.

The dream, in every player's heart,
To win it all not part,
They lie awake at night,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

The game, where gamblers rule the night,
And get your blood they might,
The joker's closin' in,
I know, you know, they know, we all know.

@Michael Koszowski I don't think that its a clunker at all....cuz I grew up in the country and it reminds me of that. :) Besides...Jeff Lynne can do no wrong in my eyes.
