The Lyrics

Why do I get the feeling I've got you here under false pretences? This is a parody about the best card game there is: bridge. Though a wise man did once say: "Bridge is like sex - if you haven't got a good partner, then you need a good hand"
Cut the cards, time to play
Deal me in babe, Hey, hey!

I don't wanna brag and poker is a drag
Canasta's a disasta and it ain't my bag
Never ever won when I'm playing vingt-et-un
Pontoon or blackjack no they ain't no fun.. no fun
Rummy's just for dummies (but it's OK if your pissed)
Nearly there, yes really, in a game of whist
One game, every game, cannot be beat
Kind of intellectual - just like me, like me

C'mon, take an auction, bid it and
Make a contract, play your hand

Foursomes do it for me
In a game of cards
Foursomes do it for me
C'mon - ain't that hard
Have a foursome with me
(So saith the bard?)

Drink wine, play bridge
Get a cold one out the fridge, yeah

Listen!
One heart, two hearts, three hearts, go!
Crazy overbidding, was that ACOL? No!
Three spades, seven spades, slam it in no trumps
One down, seven down- that was dumb (yeah, dumb)

You gotta guess a little, test a little
F'nesse a little more
Workin' out with Gerber all the points you gonna score
Two club/no trump opening is sweet
Thirty-seven points? Will you partner me? Yeah!

Deal a hand out, pick it up
Check your points, yeah - count 'em u-up

Foursomes do it for me
It's a game I love
Foursomes do it for me
C'mon deal me up
Have a foursome with me
No! Got a yarborough

I'm not doing great
When my highest card's an eight, yeah

[solo... with dummy]

You got the di'monds, I got the hearts
Clubs and spades and the bidding starts
'Cause I'm void, annoyed, so I'll attempt
Got a long - way long -suit to preempt

Did we make rubber? One down or two?

Like an addict: get your fix
Lay a trump down, take your tricks

Foursomes do it for me
In a game of cards
Foursomes do it for me
C'mon - ain't that hard
Have a foursome with me
It's a game of cards
Foursomes do it for me
Oh, it's a game I love
Foursomes do it for me
Come on, deal me up
Have a foursome with me
Ooh
Foursomes do it for me
Yeah! Partner me!
