The Lyrics

"Four-flushing" is a term used in poker, where , say, the player has four cards of one suit, the fifth of another, and thereby cheats to win. It's anybody's guess how long this has been tried, how successful it was, or how long the cheater survived to play another game! This parody is a break from some of the more serious topics I've dealt with recently. BTW, I don't play poker at all! You lose less money that way! Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers produced an excellent video of this song back around 1989 and I saw it a number of times. This song was relatively easy to parody. Now for the parody lyrics!

I’m a card sharp, playin’ for money/Draw poker is my favorite game
I sure like winning the ante/Love money, and more of the same
It's a long night, playin' some poker/There's chips and some cash now in view
I'm a bad boy, 'cause I practice cheatin’ /I'm a bad boy for stealin’ from you

[Chorus]
And I'm four, four flushin'
Yeah I'm four, four flushin'

[Verse 2]
All the players, losin' their money/Don’t know why, it all goes to me
I’m a bad boy, doin’ four-flushin’/I’m cheatin’, but they just don’t see

[Chorus]
And I'm four, I'm four flushin'
Yeah I'm four, four flushin'
(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushn',
Four flushn', I'm-a four flushin', I'm

[Verse 3]
I don’t care if I take your money/I don’t care ‘bout how much you may lose
I'm gonna' keep on, doin’ four-flushin’/And keep on, as long as I choose

[Chorus]
Now I'm four, four flushin'/(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a
Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)/Yeah I'm four, four flushin'
(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a/Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)

[Outro]
(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)
Yeah I'm four flushin', '
Oh!
(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I’, a)
Four flushin'
(Free fallin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)
And I'm free, oh, four flushin'
(Four flushin', I'm- four flushin', I'm-a
Free fallin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)
Four flushin'
(Four flushin', I'm-a four flushin', I'm-a)

I've done four flushin' before. Usually it's with Texas Hold Em poker. Problem is you might get the feeling that one of your opponents has an actual flush after the river is played.
