when in the course of lifes events
plans and patterns that i choose
the future is self-evident
i bet my blood to win or lose

ch.
whoa is me, whoa is me
from sea to shining
whoa is me

i ain't the one who made the game
don't waste my self defining rules
caught a glimpse of dealer's eyes
--seen how he suckers all the fools

ch.

with eyes as wide and deep to match
all the hearts insanity
his glance fell on a wicked catch
raging drunken gambler me

ch.

ever feel ya bones exposed
greeds and lust beneath the dust
if he sees me he's seem 'em all
deal again, in god i trust

ch.

after all it is his deal
no matter how i think its stacked
hearts or spades or spin the wheel
no matter how i break the rack

ch.

but he can't control his eyes
no concept of a poker face
reflected cards in starry skies
say play the ace,just play the ace

whoa is me, whoa is me
whoopee ti yi yaa, whoa is me!--nicolo
