Well, king of diamonds
Queen of spades
You played your cards
Your hand’s been laid
Well ace of diamonds
King of spades
The prize is mine
You better pay money
You better pay (?) time
You can give it all away (?)
You’ll have your last dime (?)
You think you’re free
I went on a spree (?)
Well, ace of diamonds
King of spades
You’re going down, way down
And that ain’t all
’Cause don’t forget
The next time you call
Maybe be your last bet
’Cause ace of diamonds
King of spades
Your life is near (?)
Watch out fate
You’re getting old
You’re losing time
And I don’t mind taking
Your every last dime

    General CommentGood time rock'n'roll. "I went on a spree" is a line which at the time was sure to fuel the whole "reclusive psycho" image of Jandek.
