Nothing To Lose
Come into my tent, play a little game;
Show some sense of adventure, don't be lame!
Just relax, I promise you I'm tame,
And win or lose, your life will never be the same.
Take a card, any card, then we'll have fun.
I'll shuffle the deck all about, then you pick one;
If your card of choice is picked, you'll win a ton,
If not, well, we'll talk about that when we're done.
Why so nervous? Fine, here, I'll pick for you;
Ah, your card is from the suit of hearts, number two.
Now I'll shuffle 'em really good, throw 'em in the air, too!
Cards cards everywhere, come darling, don't look blue!
Somewhere on the floor is the key to a fortune you could take,
And buy yourself a fifty-story mansion on a golden lake.
You'll never get that chance though, unless you make
A fateful choice, but still you wonder what's at stake?
Prying after our game has already begun? What gall!
But I suppose it couldn't hurt to let the truth fall;
The wrong choice means you'll do a few odd jobs is all,
Spruce up the place,
