"Between The Cheats" as written by Salaam Remi and Amy Winehouse....
I would die before I divorce you
I'd take a thousand thumps for my love
'Cause you kiss a lucky horseshoe
Stuck it in my boxing glove
'Cause anyone who will see us
Through our victory and done defeat
Knows that I'll take you to the cleaners
If you come between the cheats

Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh

My husband is the finest handsome hustler
And he still make this housewife blush
So I'm holding my hand in his
I'm sitting on the royal flush
Women drink him in, swimming in his green eyes
Then go home and catch the chips you got
And take a bad beat to ooh to boat oh!
The jack of hearts is my jackpot

Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh

Catch me on, have to ?
And I know as my heart beats
There's a winning secret to both
And it's sworn between the cheats

Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh
Between the cheats, ooh oh oh ooh oh oh

    General CommentI don't know if I'm right but instead of:
    'Women drink him in, swimming in his green eyes'
    I hear:
    'Women drink him in, swim in him, with green eyes'
    As in they take him in entirely and are left jealous he's not theirs?

    I don't know, I'm probably wrong, haha

    General CommentRather than 'then go home and catch the chips you got', it's 'then go home and cash the chips you got'. Also, instead of 'done defeat', I think it could be 'dumb defeat'. Not sure about that though. I also think raisedbywolves is right about the green eyes thing.

    Obviously a song about Blake. Quite a sad song really. She loved him a lot.

    General CommentI think it's "them go home and cash the chips you got."
    It's definitely "dumb defeat."
    I also think it's "'Cause anyone who will listen up."

    The bridge definitely starts "'Cause we all have to lock eyes
    And I know is my heart beat."

    General CommentAt the 1:47 mark through 1:54 Amy is clearly "Scat singing" (vocalizing using sound and syllables instead of actual lyrics)
    Although, at the 1:47 mark, the last word would be "got" as soon as it rolls up to 1:47 she scat sings, than at the 1:54 mark the lyrics pick up where they last left off, and at 1:54 she continues with" the jack of hearts is my jackpot.

    Personally, I think she sings something along these lines ,
    Imagine this verse picking up at the 1:48 mark, " and take a min to, oh, bottle the jack of heart"

    What do you guys think?? Also I wanna apply this scat signing to " October song" at mark 2:54
    I feel like she scats, like a bird would, " I never ment to fly away" or it could be " I never ment to take off" which would make more scene, because what do birds to when they leave the nest? They take off. Never to return home again.
    Now that I listen to it again, it sounds like she says " I never ment to give up"
    rip Amy
