Cards on the table and they facin down
We all got a hand to play, ain't no backin' down
Aces up your sleeve, they ain't gonna do you no good
But the joker's still in play and it just might come your way

Listen to me, don't you hear what I say?
Can't you hear what I say, can't you hear what I say?
Listen to me, don't you hear what I say?
We're lookin' at the Judgment Day

I was holdin' a 10 of diamonds but I wanted a ace
People all around the world goin' through changes
Look me straight in my face
Said I just called to show you, some people never satisfied
Wanna trade hands with me little brother
See if you can stay alive?

Listen to me, don't you hear what I say?
Can't you hear what I say, can't you hear what I say?
Listen to me, don't you hear what I say?
We're lookin' at the judgment day

[Incomprehensible] brothers and sisters
Can they mess 'em around
Pullin the wool over their eyes
But the Dealer, we can't fool 'coz He put the cards into play
And He know what me and you are holdin' all the time

Listen to me, don't you hear what I say?
Can't you hear what I say, can't you hear what I say?
Listen to me, don't you hear what I say
'Coz we're lookin' at the Judgment Day comin down
