I'm in the big blind
With an average stack and an aggressive image
The four seat limps right after me never a good sign
He's been beating up the table showing down strong cards all night
The maniac in the nine throws in another raise he loves to raise
Confusing foolishness for courage and swinging on a vine
I peek at my cards (3 Diamonds, 2 Diamonds)
And decide that I'm gonna defend the four seat does the same

And we all buckle in for our favorite ride

(flop: J Clubs, 2 Spades, 8 Hearts)

I'm the first to act and bet the pot hoping to win it right then and there
But the 4 seat calls and the maniac folds
And I'm out of position with a lowly pair of two's
The dealer burns and turns
It is in this half second where life becomes perfect
The mind a weapon
Tommorow's worries and yesterdays mistakes they crumble and fall away
For now I'm on the wire

(turn: 3 Hearts)

I check, the four bets
The strap snaps shut as I push my whole stack into the middle
He shakes his head to let me know
He doesn't have those dreaded pocket 8s
And sighs, "I have to call"
(Seat four shows: K Hearts, J Hearts)

The river comes taht sexy, sexy Ace of spades
And all is well in the world
Now you wanna take a good man down?
Send him back to his wallet to steam off another 500?
Well you just wink and show him threes up
