Queen of hearts - Juice Newton

1. Strophe                                        

Midnight, and I'm a-waiting on the twelve-oh-five

Hoping it'll take me just a little farther down the line

The moonlight, you're just a heartache in disguise;

Won't you keep my heart from breaking

if it's only for a very short time

 

1. Refrain

Playing with the Queen of Hearts,

knowing it ain't really smart

The joker ain't the only fool

who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie, thinking 'bout a life of crime

Cause that's what I'll have to do

to keep me away from you

 

2. Strophe                  

Honey, you know it makes you mad                  

Why is everybody telling everybody

what you have done                  

Baby, I know it makes you sad                             

But when they're handing out the heartaches

you know you got to have you some

 

2. Refrain

Playing with the Queen of Hearts,

knowing it ain't really smart

The joker ain't the only fool

who'll do anything for you

Laying out another lie, thinking 'bout a life of crime

Cause that's what I'll have to do

to keep me away from you

3. Strophe

Lovers, I know you've had a few

But how you hover 'neath the covers

and tell them I'm the only one.

And others, they know just what I'm going through

And it's so hard to be a lover

when you say you're only in it for fun

 

3. Refrain

Playing with the Queen of Hearts,

knowing it ain't really smart

The joker ain't the only fool

who'll do anything for you

 

4. Refrain

Playing with the Queen of Hearts,

knowing it ain't really smart

The joker ain't the only fool

who'll do anything for you

And laying out another lie,

thinking 'bout a life of crime

Cause that's what I'll have to do

to keep me away from you
