Track Name: Queen of Hearts
Queen of Hearts (Mick Hargreaves)

I had a naughty deck of cards -
my girls they like to play real hard
But early on, I discovered a problem -
I was missing my Queen of Hearts
I tried to substitute the Joker -
she's really good at playin' poker
I realized it wasn't the same -
'cause I was missing my Queen of Hearts
Come on baby show your face to me -
your picture card is what I need
Let’s make a deal honey stack your deck on me

Went to Vegas, anty’d up for hours -
Gone for days, I was skipping showers
In the end, I gave up the game -
‘cause I couldn't find my Queen of Hearts
Came back home and asked around -
any body heard the sound
Of my girl at the bottom of the deck -
She would be my Queen of Hearts
I can't deal with the Jack or the King -
those kinda guys really ain't my thing
I need a straight between me, me and my Queen

Queen of Hearts are you in the dark -
are you hidden or are you marked?
I’m gettin’ dizzy seeing crazy eights -
gimme the card, I’m raising the steaks

Then in the end I just couldn't believe -
my little Queenie showed up in my sleeve
Now I play her Ace in the hole -
and now I'm stroking my Queen of Hearts
I Give her diamonds take her to the clubs -
I watch her give the spades a snub
When there’s trouble I don’t have to fold -
I can count on my Queen of Hearts

Queen of Hearts you’re in my hand -
just for fun we’ll play with the band
I see you Queenie and I just blush -
when you give me the royal flush…
