"That Was A Crazy Game Of Poker (34th and 8th)" as written by and Chirstopher Culos Marc Andrew Roberge....
Oh my
20 throw down in my fist of rage
And the man to my left has folded down
Well Johnny doubled up with a royal flush

I had three Jacks and a pair of nines
My mind is turning, just two shots more
There's not much left to play
Well then dude walks in, black hat on top

What am I, if I'm lucky
Wasn't a county cop
'Cause I'm just runnin' out of time

Who's up for game two
What to do
My wallet's gettin' thin
And I just lost my watch last night
Well I gotta problem

Just one answer
Gotta throw it all down
And kiss it goodbye
Yeah!

That was a crazy game of poker (That was a crazy game of poker)
I lost it all (I lost it all)

But someday I'll be back again
And I, never to fold. (Never to fold)

Who's up for game three
I can barely see the bourbon drowning next to me
And I just lost it all
Well there's a man sittin' next to me
Red, was smiling

'Cause it's funny
I don't have no money tonight
Yeah

That was a crazy game of poker (That was a crazy game of poker)
I lost it all (I lost it all)

But someday I'll be back again
And I, never to fold. (Never to fold)

Bop bop bop
I say now skittlee dat dat,
Well how bout that?
I'm coming out the front never coming out the back
And I walked into the bar yesterday
'Cause I had something to do, something to say

And Johnny walked in right behind me
And I didn't turn around
'Til I heard the sound of his feet
Falling on the ground

I looked over my shoulder and I saw a clown
And I said what'cha doin' in the bar tonight.
So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright

And I said, how 'bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah jah jah
Jehovah!

And I said, what'cha looking at?
He hit me across the face with a bat
I grabbed my .45 and I said let's get out and go
So he opened the door and said
Do what you're here for

I said I'm wandering round the road four to four
And I said I been walking
For about a thousand years.
And my feet are growing tired

My eyes a little wired
Don't know what to do unless I retire
And he just said let's play some crazy poker

So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright
And I said, how 'bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say die dah dah
Day day oh!

I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
I said that, was the craziest game of poker that I ever saw
But I'm not gonna quit and I'm not gonna stop
I don't give a shit cause I got the drop

Johnny just got two eyes just like mine
And I'm feeling kinda funky, kinda fine
And I drank a bottle of whiskey, 'fore I came
Came to the bar to see what's the same

I saw my man named Johnny sittin' across the table from me
And to my left was a man, he had no chin
Didn't really think about starting a scene
The man to my right wasn't feeling kinda nice

He looked kinda mad and I felt bad
Because I took his money last night it's kinda funny
But now I'm just struggling
I need a honey-bunny.

I don't know what to say anymore
So I'm just gonna go out, anywho
So I said Johnny whatcha doing tonight?
He looked at me with a face full of fright

And I said, how bout a revolution?
And he said right.
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah
I say of, you say a
I say revolution, and you say jah jah jah
Jehovah!

    General CommentThey're actually a rather sub-par band. What would you say that this song is about. It seems like self promotion, and nothing more.

    General CommentI like this song because it sets O.A.R. as one of the best story telling bands I've hard. It is hard to compare them to the early bruce springsteen and bob dylan but this song is such a good story teller. In the live versions... my favorite part is when he says "you've all got eyes two eyes just like mine." Though this doesn't relate to the song much he is saying that we are all essentially the same being that we are all humans.

    I also like when he says may god be with me as a special tribute to the lord though I am not religious... Many religious fanatics such as one of the members of the band can relate a lot better than I can.

    General CommentIf OAR is one of the best story-telling bands you've heard, then you've gotta listen to more music.

    General CommentHaha I love this song. It even gives you that feeling you get while gambling. Edgy and annoyed, but thrilled. Great song to sing along to

    General CommentI do not think that OAR is the greatest band in any regard, but I do like a couple of things about them: I find them very entertaining and I think that they are AMAZING live. Case in point, I find this song really meh, live (especially the version from "rain or shine") is spectacular.

    Are the lyrics of the song rather self-promoting? Yes
    Is it a particularly good story? Not really, but I just like it.
