For today’s SLS, we are prompted by our host, Jim Adams, of “A Unique Title For Me”, to find songs about gambling/dice/cards/win/lose. Thanks, Jim!

Lots of songs to choose from, and all are good.

To join in this fun, weekly musical challenge, just click the above link for details. You can also listen to many other selections. It’s fun! 🙂

I’ve had this post ready to go since last night, and now it seems others had the same idea! Yay! It’s a great song! 🙂

I liked this song ever since it came out. It’s got a fun and catchy tune and lyrics, and it’s easy to sing along to.

Have you ever taken a chance…gambled on love? Sometimes it all works out, but sometimes it doesn’t. Still, you keep going back for more, heartaches or not. You may have the cards dealt in your favor and you get a winning hand, while other times the cards are not what your were hoping for, and you go bust. Is it worth it? Sure, because as they say, if you don’t play there is really no chance of winning.

I especially remember this song because we were in south Texas at the time it was still a pretty popular song, and played on the radio all the time. We were all on alert, because there was a hurricane forecast to hit somewhere along the Gulf Coast on that day, and Corpus Christi may be in the path. So, we were monitoring the TV news, and also listening to the radio. This song was one they played a lot.

I turned out that that Hurricane Alicia (1983) made landfall near Galveston, instead of Corpus Christi. Still, it was pretty tense where we were while watching the coverage.

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
So 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

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
So 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
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
