Stud Poker



 



I won a woman in a poker game



Straight up and down



I won a woman in a poker game



In a little German town



 



Her husband was miner



With muscles in his spit



But he couldn't play poker 



One little bit,



Didn't seem to understand



The value of each hand



Or how to bluff



If the going got rough.



 



His wife was petite



A blonde German honey



Who sat patiently watching



As I won all his money,



Until he said 



Let's play for the lot



My wife Helga



Against your winnings pot.



 



He dealt an open hand 



As a crowd gathered round



The snap of each card and his



Breathing were the only sounds 



As He lost,



Realised the cost,



Showed his grief,



Then his relief



 



As I said a game’s just a game



And we split the pot



And I kissed her hand,



The only reward i got



And we repaired to the bar



And i made that joker



Promise he would never



Ever again play stud poker.



 



I won a woman in a poker game



Straight up and down



I won a woman in a poker game



In a little German town.
