Like a pair of riverboat gambler
We both seen our share of losing hands
We layed our hearts out on the table
Hoping love is strong enough to win.
But when love's been dealing off the bottom
You always want to cut the cards again.
And girl, unless you're only bluffing,
This time we're both cashing in.

Like a pair of riverboat gamblers
Playin' the odds that love is coming in.
You're the queen of hearts I'm countin' on.
The one this Joker's money is on to win.
I've got a solitary feeling
I'll never have to ante up again.
If a couple of riverboat gamblers get lucky
We just might win a hand.

Once you've lost your heart to cheaters
Your dreams of winning love begin to die.
When you wake up with a stranger
You know there's no diamonds in the sky.
So girl, let's put our hands together.
We ain't got nothin' left to lose.
Except the chance that we might make it
And that's a deal we can't refuse.

Like a pair of riverboat gamblers
Playin' the odds that love is comin' in.
You're the queen of hearts I'm countin' on.
The one this Joker's money is on to win.
I've got a solitary feelin'
I'll never have to ante up again.
If a couple of riverboat gamblers get lucky
We just might win a hand.

If a couple of riverboat gamblers get lucky
A pair might win a hand...
