The Most Memorable Poker Lyrics

by | 26th, March 2008

YOU got to know when to gold ’em, know when to fold ’em…”

You gotta la-la-la-la-dum-dum, la-la-la dum-da-kerchum…

Who can forget the rousing theme song to the England rugby team’s World Cup bid?

But not all poker lyrics are so memorable. The Poker Anorak takes a look at five of the most interesting poker lyrics of all time:

5: Poker Lyrics – Electric Light Orchestra

Play me another hand,
Loose everything I am,
Until we meet again.

To rhyme “hand” and “gain” is no easy thing. But having achieved the barely possible, ELO move on to safer ground:

The ace, that’s hiding up your sleeve,
Will cause the world to grieve

4. Darktown Poker Club Lyrics – Jimmy Dean
The song is chiefly famous for featuring the world “Egad”.

Bill Jackson was a poor old dub,
Who joined the Darktown Poker Club

A promising start. Followed by:

He said – Now you all see this brand new razor
I’ve had it sharpened just today
And I’m comin”- in with my own rules
That you must follow as you play.
Now keep them boney hands on the table when you deal’em please
And don’t be slipp’en any aces down there in between your knees.
It’s a song that can only end in tears, arrests and possible jail time.

3. Lazy Poker Blues Lyrics – Fleetwood Mac

She puts some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot
She puts some coal on the fire so I can keep my poker hot
Yeah, we stoke around all day long and night time we stoke around some more

There are suggestions that the song is not altogether based on poker. But we cannot see it.

2. All Saints – Take The Key

The intention was to just choose the best line. But the more you look, the less certain you become as to which is the gem:
I never want another love
Your the one I’m thinking of
Your a true trooper
Super cool number one hun
I could play pool
Bet poker over you
Guaranteed to win
‘Cos I’m an all saint boo
So let me count the ways
In which I love thee
All in all this can’t be untrue or a fantasy
Tellin’ no more lies
Your love is takin’ me high
‘Cos… loving you make me feel

1. AC/DC The Jack

Only one winner. There can only be one winner. For those who are about to deal, we salute you:

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
