Number One Honest Game

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Warming Up To The Ice Age (1985).

Well the Ace of Spades, walkin' on the water
The joker's only daughter, in love with the king of hearts
Ooooh and the Jack of Clubs is kissin' the Queen of Diamonds
Oh, she's such a shy one, until that dancing starts

It's a house of cards
I guess it can blow too hard and the aces all fall down
But there's no one to blame
In the number one honest game
Playin' the number one honest game

You got deuces wild, go find yourself a partner
Tell her that you love her, before she checks your bet
Seven's up try again tomorrow, it's only a life of sorrow
This love you can't forget

It's a house of cards
I guess it can blow too hard and the aces all fall down
But there's no one to blame
In the number one honest game
We're playin' the number one honest game

Girl, my heart's not rigged nor gone astray
I'm lookin' for that timeless game to play
The way you move fills me with desire
But if you play with me, girl, you're playin' with fire...I'm burnin' up

Count your suits, add up all your markers
Now that you have found her, you take the love you want
Ooooh, you want mine, I'd give you kind and gentle
Just forget the mental, you put your heart in front

'Cause It's a house of cards
I guess it can blow too hard and the aces all fall down
But there's no one to blame
In the number one honest game
We're playin' the number one honest game
Playin' the number one honest game
Playin' the number one honest game...
