The Lyrics

In the mornin' you go gunnin'
On the graveyard shift you’re playin’
And you push until you’re runnin’
Then go back to where you’re stayin’
And your bankroll took a poundin'
As they gave you lots of heat
And tonight they’ll still be houndin'
But no time for your retreat

You play black-jack, losin' again
Cards goin' round and round
You play black-jack, blew it again

When you see a friendly dealer
Then you find your only friend
Well you know that you’re no stealer
Just advantage till the end
Then you o-ver-bet your bankroll
And it brings you only sorrow
You descend into a black hole
But get back out there tomorrow

It's just black-jack, losin' again
Chips goin' up and down
You know black-jack, screwed up again

Now you stare and trick and beg us
Just to spot you one more grand
Then you find you're back in Vegas
With the black chips in your hand
Your high cards can win you money
So you track them when you're able
In the land of comps and honey
Stack your chips high on the table, yeah

You know black-jack, this time you'll win
You're gonna pound this town
You play black-jack, knew you could win

Nice take on that Vegas feeling - take a pounding, but there is always the next night.

Great one, BJ21, and as I've said before, I shouldn't gamble because I lose money like a tree sheds its leaves in the fall, but I do it anyway on my birthday every year. I always appreciate your gambling parodies, and I like Steely Dan as well. 5s.

What about the sequel, where you come home and your wife bops you over the head with her cast iron skillet? ;)

Timmy: Thanks, and you hope the next night isn't another pounding. =:-O

Andria: Thanks for the kind v/c. Only take the amount of money that won't make you mad if you lose it all. :-)

Fiddlegirl: Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, the sequel. Was that one lump or two? ;-D

A♠ J♠ - This Steely Dan OS is perfect for this parody. It played right into your hand so to speak... Great follow along to the OS. Here's your hand - 5♦ 5♥ 5♣ - Hit or stay?

You're true to your name, Blackjack21! I echo Guy's comment. Dealing you 3 sets of 5's! There's even a Taco in Taco Bell named in your honor: the Blackjack Taco! I think I'll get one!

Thanks Christie. I gotta try one of those tacos, but I'm still waiting on my royalty check for the use of my name. ;-)

From cryptography expert Bruce Schneier:

"Computer Card Counter Detects Human Card Counters

"All it takes is a computer that can track every card:

'The anti-card-counter system uses cameras to watch players and keep track of the actual "count" of the cards, the same way a player would. It also measures how much each player is betting on each hand, and it syncs up the two data points to look for patterns in the action. If a player is betting big when the count is indeed favorable, and keeping his chips to himself when it's not, he's fingered by the computer... and, in the real world, he'd probably receive a visit from a burly dude in a bad suit, too.

'The system reportedly works even if the gambler intentionally attempts to mislead it with high bets at unfavorable times.'

Of course it does; it's just a signal-to-noise problem.

I have long been impressed with the casino industry's ability to, in the case of blackjack, convince the gambling public that using strategy equals cheating."

Hmm, I think that's been around a while. But it has its flaws. It also identifies many non-counters who are just wild bettors as counters. The latest technology is RFID chips that record the exact amount of the bet on the table with a sensor underneath the betting circle. They have all sorts of measures they use and they are all a waste of money and cost the casinos money in the long run. Thanks for the tidbit. Cheers.
