What have you got down in your smile?
One eyed Jack is a joker so wild
He sees it coming; he gets out of the way
One eyed Jack, he got nothin' to say
He got nothin', no no, got nothin' to say

One horse town, dog on a bark
Jack jumps in the game just for a lark
To the dealer he looks like Buddha with the blues
He always wins, he don't mind to lose
He don't mind, no no, he don't mind to lose

If you cheat, you never get caught
Breakin' dealers like lovers break hearts
What you got way down in your smile
A joker so wild, one eyed Jack, one eyed Jack

Cross-eyed queens love one eyed Jacks
But the ladies they know that Jack never comes back
They're lost out on the highway very first light of day
Lookin' for a town and a new game to play
They're just lookin', for a town, and a new game to play

If you cheat, you never get caught
Breakin' dealers like lovers break hearts
What you got way down in your smile
A joker so wild, one eyed Jack, one eyed Jack

What have you got way on down in your smile?
O-oh, a one eyed Jack is a joker so wild
One eyed jack, one eyed jack,
One eyed jack, one eyed jack
