One for the money two for the show
You've played your little game so cleverly
First you took my money then you made me go
You showed me up and made a fool of me.

Not too long ago I still remember kisses
Warm and sweet and oh, so tender
But like a boat of life that strikes an unconfected tree
That's just how quick you've made a fool of me.

One for the money two for the show
You've played your little game so cleverly
First you took my money then you made me go
You showed me up and made a fool of me.

--- Instrumental ---

Everybody told me what you were doing
They all said that you would be my ruin
But like the tree that couldn't see the light that's flashin' down
I closed my ears and didn't hear a sound.

One for the money two for the show
You've played your little game so cleverly
First you took my money then you made me go
You showed me up and made a fool of me...
