Busy Signal - The Gambler Lyrics

The Gambler hothead

On a warm summer's evenin
on a train bound for nowhere
I met up with the gambler,
We were both too tired to sleep
so we took turns to stairrin out of the window at the darkness,
till boredom over took us
and he began to speak
He said 'son I've made a life, out of readin people's faces,
And knowing what their cards were by the way they held their eyes
So if you don’t mind me saying,
I can see you're out of aces
For the taste of your whiskey,
I'll give you some advice
So I handed him my bottle, and he drank down my last swallow
And he bummed a cigarrete, and asked me for a light
and the night got deathly quiet,
and his face lost all expression
…said if you gonna play the game boy you gotta learn to play it right

You got to know when to hold'em, know when to fold'em
Know when to walk away,
know when to run
You never count your money while sitting at the table,
they will be time enough for countin when the deal is done

Every gambler knows that the secret to surviving
Is knowing what to throw in and knowing what to keep
Cause every hand's a winner, and every hand’s a looser
and the best that you can hope for is to die in your sleep,,
and when he finished speaking,
he turned back towards the window
Crushed down his cigarette,
and faded off to sleep
and somewhere in the darkness
the gambler, he broke even
but in his final words I found
an ace that i could keep

repeat chorus x3
