Jackie Morris: Music

House of Cards

(Jackie Morris)
Toss and turning as I dream
Trouble’s coming fast
Playing cards in a devil’s game
Now he wants his due…in cash.

CHORUS:
Don’t know why I bought it
I bought the whole nine yards
Bought it all, then I bought some more
And I paid…with a credit card.

Queen of diamonds, King of hearts
Jack of many trades
We’re all inside this house of cards
Now I fear that we’ve been played.

CHORUS:
You know what’s bound to happen
With a crooked house of cards
But I was gambling on high equity
Now I’m praying for a lower APR.


Toss and turning as I dream
In deep, over my head
Devil’s dealing one more round
Says he’ll take the house, instead.

CHORUS:
Don’t know why I bought it
The whole insane nine yards
Bought it all, then I bought some more
And I paid… with a credit card.

Yeah, I bought it all, then I bought some more
And I paid (Oh, I paid!)...with a credit card.
