"Gambler" as written by David Coverdale and Mel Galley....
I've been a gypsy
For a thousand years
A victim of circumstance
I go wherever my destiny calls
I'm caught in a game of chance

I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I want to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside

No fame or fortune,
No luck of the draw
When I dance with Queen of Hearts
A jack of all trades
But, a loser in love
It's tearing my soul apart

Still I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I want to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in
I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in

The jack of diamonds
An' the ace of spades
Try to use me, and to abuse me
It seems the dealer
won't give me a chance
I'm victim of circumstance

So I stand on the outside
Looking at love
I want to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in
So I stand on the outside
Looking at love
Just trying to get inside
I stand on the outside
Looking in
