The Lyrics

Not the best title, I know, but it works. Based on these lyrics.
Hello, I'm-a called Jimmy
I gotta something special-a for you
Ready?
Uno, duo, tre, quatro

When I was a boy
I would play the poker thing
My mates used to say "Don't cheat just to win"
With the poker kings, Don't-a have a three,
Dumb Jimmy, hidden up your sleeve

Boy, it make-a me sick, everytime they big guys win
I used ta play-a for kicks, now I owe this jerk a gin
Now I'm tryin' to cheat, this is how I earn my bucks
This is how I gotta win

And then I get caught, the guys say to me:

"What's the deal with you, dude? Gotta show respect
Didn't follow the rules, now you look quite a dweeb
Hid it up your sleeve, had the poker face
Ahh, we played the same ace!"

"Oops-s, my bad-a! But who put that there?
Killed my royal flush, man!"

Ah!
Why end the game?
Not so nice, not so nice!

Soon-a come the goons, gonna toss me out the club
Then I'll drag myself to-a the hospital
Get-a myself some new scars
But I try to stop them, I try to talk them out of it
I don't wanna get sh!t

Totally kicked outta me, and then I say:

"What's the deal with you? Hey! Gotta show respect
I didn't do no wrong, why you clenching your hand?
Please do not get mad, don't punch in my face
It's a different ace!"

"It is! His is ace of spades, not clubs!"

Now I'm in deep poo, sh!t! Didn't show respect
His ace was a clubs too, now he's lookin' quite mad!
Then he acted bad, tossed me out the place
I landed on my face

It's-a my fault-a!

Hello everybody
'At's out-a dere in the outside-of-the-internet land!
Do you know the worst thing you can do playing poker when someone pulls an ace?
You pull the SAME ace!
You pull-a that-a trick, all-a the guys get mad, dey break-a your face
Dat-a may not be-a so good

You ought to learn-a dis-a fact, it's-a real-a simple
See, I sing "Do not try to cheat" you sing "Hey!"
Den I sing-a da rest
And den at de end we can all-a ding: "They might break-a your face!"

OK let's-a try it, really big
Uno, duo, tre, quatro

Do not try to cheat (Hey!), gotta show respect
Please do not try to hide (Hey!) any cards up your sleeve
The guys will get peeved (Hey!) they'll get on your case
They might break-a your face!

Dat's-a great, we can do it better dis time, I think

Do not try to cheat (Hey!), gotta show respect
Please do not try to hide (Hey!) any cards up your sleeve
The guys will get peeved (Hey!) they'll get on your case
They might break-a your face!

Okay, one-a time for mama, everybody

Do not try to cheat (Hey!), gotta show respect
Please do not try to hide (Hey!) any cards up your sleeve
The guys will get peeved (Hey!) they'll get on your case
They might break-a your face!
Man, that was hard...

I've gotta hand it to ya, bobpie....you've done a magnificent job with such an impossible OS; give yourself a pat on the back (and hunt down the bass turd who challenged you to do this one...;-D) 555

(Challenge) a 555 for completing it, at the very least!

Man this is a fun OS... I kinda wanna parody it myself. I know you struggled with this one, so I'm probably not going to do it soon, but it really looks fun to play around with. Anyways good job for completing this, although some variations would have been nice.

I think you did a wonderful job with this. Let's face it...it's a funny song. The first time I read "Ahh, we played the same ace!" with the OS playing, I laughed out loud, and I saw where you were going.
You came-up with a perfect idea to parody this song. Great !!

Not an easy job to parody this mother of an OS, It's quite impressive guy.
