Waiting for an Ace
I wore my real red dress and poker face
To the party, give me whisky on ice
Deal them down and dirty aces would be nice
I'm very patient, waiting for an ace
Lack of expression, void of any trace
Bets go 'round the table, up goes the price
I call your bet and raise you, roll the dice
I hope to take your chips and leave this place
The last hole card - it was filthy dirty
I got that sugar sweet and tasty ace
I am just going to take your money
I will be nice and I will be flirty
While I am raking up that soft green space
It's been real nice playing with you honey!
