The Lyrics

Ah...the joys of strip poker. Two brief explanations: the Earl of Sandwich is said to have helped invent the "meat between bread" meal so he would have a hand free to continue playing cards; "merde" (which rhymes with 'paired') is the French word for 'sh*t'.
I hope I never lose here at strip poker
I get my thrill from each
And ev'ry card and joker
Hope I can still play for hours without stoppin'
I'm keeping my clothes on while yours you are droppin'
I hope you did not wear
An extra layer of somethin'
Whenever my hand wins out, clothing you'll be dumpin'
Believe me I plan my winnings to enhance
And when I get the choice of your shirt or your pants
I'll choose your pants
You'll lose your pants

I will forever give thanks to the Earl of Sandwich
If I get hungry there's no need for a big switch
Giving me more of those chances
To see you strippin'
Not a chance that you'll beat me;
You must be trippin'
When you're ready to fold
Give a holler
Then you can commence loosening
Your shirt collar
It's time you gave me
More than just a fleeting glance
You will take off your shirt and let it join your pants
It joins your pants

(Luck itself is in constant motion always)
You'll lose you pants
(Stringing us along)
More than a glance
(Who's the fool)
Yes, now's my chance
(Wants to look at his own cards and wager)
You'll lose your pants
(Where luck will end up)

I've got an ace-high hand
But I will keep on bluffin'
Hoping that more of your clothing you will be sloughin'
Promise me that if you win you'll go easy
'Cause the sight of myself naked makes me queasy

I see you've paired
I should have cared

(Luck itself is in constant motion always)
You want my pants
(stringing us along)
Yes, it's your chance
(I'm the fool
Took a look at his own cards and wagered)
More than a glance
(That luck had not gone
I'm the fool)
I've lost me pants
(Took a look at my own cards and wagered
That luck had not gone)
If you know the song, the parenthesis are around the backup vocals that come in between the other lines. I couldn't find a good link to a version of the song. Sorry.

I liked this. Pretty good.

Youtube at This was very funny, with some choice rhymes like "droppin'/ sloughin'", and "MERDE!". I also really liked what you did with the backing vocal lines. The Earl of Sandwich reference does seem out of left field, though.

Thanks, Agri. The Earl of Sandwich was a notorious card player who never wanted to stop playing. So, he had his cooks invent a meal he could eat with one hand while still playing cards..thus, the sandwich! And, in strip poker, you might agree, not having to stop to eat could be a good thing. Thanks for the link, too.

I don't think I'll be playing Poker with you, Sir ~G~. Sounds like you're a seasoned player of the game ! Harry Truman was a great poker player,; he beat Churchill everytime. I hear that O'Bama can play a good hand, too . . .

Gianni - And it leaves your other hand free for, well, nevermind ;-)

Congrats on being the first (I think) Amiright Idol Round 2 entry, and a very good entry indeed! I might say "I Hope You Win", but I'm planning to enter, too! 5-5-5.

Thanks, all. Unknown-it's always worth a gamble when it's strip poker! McKludge- Come on now! Melanie Lee- We're all in for the fun. May the best one always win!

Very good song, I also liked what you did with the backup lines (from Sons of the Desert). What Lady Luck giveth, Lady Luck can taketh away (including skivvies).

(AmIRight Idol) Well this was a night and day type change and you really shocked me because I didn't expect something like this after your first round and the SOTM round I was in with you. The backing vocals in the middle were fantastic, and you had wonderful word play throughout. This song is a popular original song, and with your pacing and formatting here would be perfect for recording. If this song were to be recorded, I think it would be popular (my own Every Sunday comes to mind--but wasn't as funny) I commend you for this round.

Wow. Thanks, Dave. I hope to have a few more surprises for you along the way.

Great rhyming, scansion, format (layout) and humor. Well done, Gianni, to a song that needed it.

Thanks, Red Ant. I had fun doing this one.
