Queen of Diamonds - Lyrics

The casino floor is full of men so frightened
Trying to make it pay
To win or lose we know just how our night ends
Gonna throw it all away
Hope that suddenly you draw the queen of diamonds
And everyone around you fills turns to silence
Another plea to keep the repo man from dialling your name
Again and again

You think of all the gifts that you will give her
Try to make her stay
And you remember all the love she carried with her
Like a bitter cheap champagne
Now that's history, you've drawn the queen of diamonds
It'll be limousines and Caribbean islands
You can't wait to see her standing there just smiling
For a change, change, for a change
What a fools game, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

And those whisky drinks they give you your ambition
While the bar ladies they work for their commission
But it doesn't stop a sucker like you wishing, it away
Oh, how can it be you've drawn the queen of diamonds
It was limousines and Caribbean islands
What you didn't see is the dealer, he was hiding
An ace
An ace, what an ace
What a cruel, cruel game oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
