Black on the red and red on black
It's a tic of a tired mind
Come and sit down, won't you try your luck
See if you unwind

Never use your 3's and 2's
Follow superstition
Otherwise you are going to lose
Compulsion make you listen

Take what's wrong, and make it go right
You can weave it like a prayer
Wonder if you'll spend the night
Playing solitaire?

Do it again, when you find you're all done
Like an idiot savant
Shuffle up your luck, you see, you almost won
Now wrestle down what you want

Jack on the Queen, and the 10 on the Jack
It's a happy repetition
You and your fate in a kind of check-mate
You are only competition

Take what's wrong, and make it go right
You can weave it like a prayer
How you goin' to spend the night
Playing solitaire?

Take what's wrong, and make it go right
You can weave it like a prayer
How you goin' to spend the night
Playing solitaire?
