The man laid his hat on the table
Hung his coat up on the wall
Sat down to dinner
Said as soon as I am able
I'll say something nice to you all
Then he took a deck from his pocket
Spread em so I saw em all
Then he turned his back to me
Shuffled em and drew me
The card that said I never would fall
Oh mary lou won't you tell me what to do
I got a dollar on the corner
And a lazer in my shoe
If I don't get an answer
Gonna split myself in two
He spun till a ton was glistening
Turned to me and gave me a smile
He said I'm leaving now
But I want what you owe me
I'll be back in a little while
That was the last time I saw him
Hope I never see him again
I know it sounds funny
But I owe him some money
And I really don't want him for a friend
Oh mary lou won't you tell me what to do
I got a dollar on the corner
And a lazer in my shoe
If I don't get an answer
Gonna split myself in two
