SOLITAIRE
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1993 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


WELL, I GOT LOST IN THE SHUFFLE
WHEN SHE PLAYED HER WINNING HAND
ALL THE CARDS WERE STACKED AGAINST ME
NOW SHEíS WITH ANOTHER MAN
I SHOULD HAVE PLAYED IT STRAIGHT WITH HER
ĎCAUSE THE STAKES WERE VERY HIGH
I THOUGHT THAT SHE WAS JUST BLUFFING
WHEN SHE TOLD ME GOODBYE

IíVE GAMBLED EVERYTHING
GUESS I THOUGHT WE WERE A PAIR
NOW IíM JUST ANOTHER JOKER
IN THIS GAME OF SOLITAIRE
IíVE GAMBLED EVERYTHING
NOW THEREíS NOTHING LEFT TO SPARE
GUESS ITíS TIME FOR ME TO FOLD
AND START A GAME OF SOLITAIRE

IT SEEMS I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER
THAN TO COURT THE QUEEN OF HEARTS
SHE MADE HER REPUTATION
LONG BEFORE SHE REACHED THESE PARTS
WELL, IíM NOT THE KING OF DIAMONDS
AND I NEVER CLAIMED TO BE
SO, SHE LEFT ME FOR A GUY NAMED JACK
AND NOW IíM HISTORY

(CHORUS)

AND IF I HAD SOME SAVIOR FAIRE
I MIGHT NOT HAVE TO PLAY SOLITAIRE

IíM SITTING IN THIS CLUB ALONE
ĎCAUSE MY LUCK RAN OUT IN SPADES
AND IíM PICKING UP THE PIECES
THAT SHE LEFT AROUND THIS PLACE
ITíS GONNA BE A LITTLE WHILE
BEFORE MY HOUSE IS FULL AGAIN
IT DOESNíT MATTER HOW YOU PLAY THE GAME
I SAID IT DOESNíT MATTER HOW YOU PLAY THE GAME
ITíS IF YOU LOSE OR WIN

(CHORUS)
