"Queen of Hearts" as written by and Hank Devito....
Midnight
And I'm a-waiting on the twelve-oh-five
Hoping it'll take me just a little farther down the line

Moonlight
You're just a heartache in disguise
Won't you keep my heart from breaking
If it's only for a very short time

Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Knowing it ain't really smart
The Joker ain't the only fool
Who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie
Thinking 'bout a life of crime
'Cause that's what I'll have to do
To keep me away from you

Honey, you know it makes you mad
Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done?
Baby, I know it makes you sad
But when they're handing out the heartaches
You know you got to have you some

Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Knowing it ain't really smart
The Joker ain't the only fool
Who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie
Thinking 'bout a life of crime
'Cause that's what I'll have to do
To keep me away from you

Lovers, I know you've had a few
But hide your heart beneath the covers
And tell 'em they're the only one
And others, they know just what I'm going through
And it's a-hard to be a lover when you say you're only in it for fun

Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Knowing it ain't really smart
The Joker ain't the only fool
Who'll do anything for you

Playing with the Queen of Hearts
And knowing it ain't really smart
The Joker ain't the only fool
Who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie
Thinking 'bout a life of crime
'Cause that's what I'll have to do
To keep me away from you

Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Playing with the Queen of Hearts
Playing with the Queen of Hearts

    General CommentMy take on this is that the song is about someone pretending to like another person on a personal level while they're really only interested in sex:

    "And it's a-hard to be a lover
    When you say you're only in it for fun"
    "playing with the queen of hearts"--> I'd say she means playing a women's heart
