If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
You win some, lose some, it's still the same to me
The pleasure is to play, it makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
Going with the flow, it's all a game to me,
Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
Double up or quit, double stake or split, it's
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

You know I'm born to lose, and gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby,
I don't wanna live for ever,
And don't forget the joker!

Pushing up the ante, I know you've got to see me,
Read 'em and weep, the dead man's hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it's gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

    Addition to the former posting...

    I made my point, i did consider all the facts(from the lowest card of the lowest color, up to the final high card), nothing will change my point of view, my course of action

    Might be a bit like the tarot cards.. To reach the highest point of evolution(? ),
    You have to cycle through the whole deck, you have to learn the lessons

    -if there are mistakes.. English is not my native language.. -
    If you go down to the single entity of the game, the top card will always be "the ace of spades"
    To me it does mean: i don´t care if you come along or do oppose
    If it comes 1:1 - it will be me - the last man standing
    I won´t even move my point of view if you team up against me - you might be a team of sevens (in germany also called chickens-not sure about other places), you might be another eleven(top guy) - the highest eleven is me..
    I will stand my ground - no matter if it leads to sure death -
    And if you pick up a fight - always keep in mind - i might have a hidden joker -
    The one unexpected person/tool/tactic, that will make me win against all odds

    Well.. Might just be a song for cardgame-players
    But if even if you never tried to write something creative yourself,
    All that time and effort until it does sound right..
    You might consider that that kinda stuff often needs weighting of every word to paint the picture, express what you want

    This song, in my opinion is about living life the way you want. Not giving two damns about what anybody else thinks. Motorhead ate, slept, and played rock & roll, they're the embodiment of fast living, that die tomorrow mentality that proved they were among the greats. Long live lemmy and long live motorhead!!
