[Verse 1]
Donny saved his paychecks
Bought himself a Corvette
And took his new wheels to the street
On the highway to the jet set
He had everything 'cept
A use for the passenger's seat

[Chorus 1]
And yeah, those curveballs will get ya
While you're preoccupied
High fives can turn to backhands
Life will deal you bad hands
But you can win if you play 'em right

[Verse 2]
Jan felt her muse itching
So she bought a six-string
And thought up a good stage name
Memorized the fretboard
Then scoured her head for
An idea for a song that never came

[Chorus 2]
And no one goes to an ophthalmologist
Complaining about their hindsight
High fives can turn to backhands
Life will deal you bad hands
But you can win if you play 'em right

[Verse 3]
Rod's parents convinced him
To apply to Princeton
Where he made the dean's list each year
Had offers from law firms
But thought, "What would be awesome
Is if I painted cars for a living right here"

[Chorus 3]
And I'm sure his mom did a double take
At his ad in the classifieds
High fives can turn to backhands
Life will deal you bad hands
But you can win if you play 'em right

[Repeat Chorus 1]
