"21" as written by and Jeffrey Bruce Waters....
Welcome to the hothouse, the game is called 21
I was in debt right up to my neck, I wasn't having any fun
But then the dealer turned around, she looked me right in the eye
I got no time for messing around, but you know I had to give it
A try

She got me under the gun - she can't have 21

She asked me why I wasn't taking my time, sweat running down my
Neck
I had the 6, the lady got 9 from the bottom of the deck
A 4 for me, it was a good thing, but she was sitting on a face
I said hit me with your best shot and she gave me the ace

She got me under the gun - she can't have 21
I've got to be the chosen one - she can't have 21
I've gotta win, I've gotta win or I might as well be dead
God let me win, just let me win, or I might as well be dead
Deuce's up, dealer has 21

    Song MeaningThe protagonist (maybe Jeff) is playing Black Jack (where you mean a total card value of 21 to win thus the songtitle).He repeats that the dealer cant have 21 because the dealer then wins but in the end she has 21 and the protagonist loses.
