"The Jack" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
She gave me the Queen
She gave me the King
She was wheelin' and dealin'
Just doin' her thing
She was holdin' a pair
But I had to try
Her Deuce was wild
But my Ace was high
But how was I to know
That she'd been dealt with before
Said she'd never had a Full House
But I should have known
From the tattoo on her left leg
And the garter on her right
She'd have the card to bring me down
If she played it right

She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
She's got the jack

Poker face was her name
Poker face was her nature
Poker straight was her game
If she knew she could get you
She played 'em fast
And she played 'em hard
She could close her eyes
And feel every card
But how was I to know
That she'd been shuffled before
Said she'd never had a Royal Flush
But I should have known
That all the cards were comin'
From the bottom of the pack
And if I'd known what she was dealin' out
I'd have dealt it back

She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, and who knows what else?
She's got the jack, yeah, yeah
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
She's got the jack

She's got the jack, she's got the jack,
Ooh, It was a bad deal, (Jack)
She gave me the (Jack), hey
She's got the (Jack), she's got the (Jack)
She's got the (Jack), ooh can't you tell
She's got the (Jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack)
(She's got the jack, she's got the Jack)
She's got the jack, she's got the Jack
She's got the jack, you never know!
She's got the jack, she's got the jack
She's got the jack
She's got the jack, and it hurts!
(She's got the jack)
She's got the jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack, jack
She's got the jack
Aaaaaah!

Oooooh!
Thank you, thank you, thank you people, thank you, thank you
I'm glad you like the show, yes, thank you very much folks.
Goodnight and God bless!

    General CommentThese are my favorite AC/DC lyrics, they're hillarious. I love the little ad libs "and it hurts!" and such. STDs suck.

    General CommentThis song is about gonhorreah... gonerrea... uh... yeah. That. Origionally it was "She's got the clap."
    There's an origional smutty-version around somewhere, I think it's on the "If you want blood, you got it" album.

    General CommentThis song is based on a 3 chord progressive blues riff. I have a sister in law, she loves the Carpenters, Elton John, Mariah, Shaniah, and drivel like that. Say's AC/DC has no talent. Recently, she was over. I threw the DVD "AC/DC- Stiff Upper Lip LIVE". The band onstage, (Germany, I think, in front of like, 80,000 people). All I had to say was, "Heh heh.... I win.".

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who says she is a virgin and she is really not. Something like that.

    General Commentwait...is this the real song? i have the live at donington album and dvd, and it goes ALOT different...
    she gave me her mind
    then she gave me her body
    but she gave it to anybody
    but i made her cry
    and i made her scream
    then i took her high
    and i curdled her cream
    but how was i to know that she had been there before?
    she told me she was a virgin

    and i forget the rest...but yeah im watching it right now and thats how it goes
