The Lyrics

some guys just can't ever seem to win at cards.
Verse 1: I just played a soft pair
I should never had played
I let out a loud swear
I should never had said
Well these are strange hands
That I can’t even stand
Not going as planned

Chorus: I better fold before I bust
I hope I gain and maintain my poker lust
I better fold before I bust
But tonight I’m gonna raise for the pot
And then I look in disgust
I didn’t fold and now I’m dust

Verse 2: Now I’m feeling queasy
I’m uneasy, undone
I’m all out of money
Used my son’s col-lege funds
Those were strange hands
That went and got me canned
I don’t understand

Chorus: I better fold before I bust
But then I lost and it cost my family’s trust
I didn’t fold so then I bust
Now tonight I’m gonna go back and cry
I think this game is unjust
I didn’t fold and then I bust

Bridge: These are strange hands
Well that I can’t even stand
Not going as planned (as planned, as planned)

Chorus: I didn’t fold and then I bust
I hope I’m saved and forgaved for my mistrust
Next time I’ll fold before I bust
Now tonight I’m gonna sleep on the couch
And now I won’t get to thrust
Because my wife is really pissed!
Wife is really pissed
Wife is real, wife is real
Wife is really pissed
Now I’ve really bust (bust, bust, bust)
Now I’ve really bust (bust, bust, bust)

The song format didnt give you much to work with beyond the great concept. It got repetitive really quick for me.

Unfortunately I must echo Agrimorfee. . .and the rhyme scheme didn't quite work for me here I'm afraid, but its a tough artist since apparently as a group, we weren't very familiar with him (I am fairly familiar with him, though I haven't heard nearly as much by him as there is out there. . .)

(Artistry) Interesting idea, but in execution...kinda bland. Kudos for having the balls to have the title sub not rhyme with the original, though. Pacing was perfect, this was just lacking in lolz.

(Artistry) But I thought a pair of deuces never loses. Enjoyed how you worked in all the "ust" rhymes.
