I Don't Play For Money


I don't play for money, just not enough
I don't play for money, but I do for love

Show some emotion, take a chance with me
A pair and a bluff, ain't such bad company

Fortune favors the brave
So stack my deck full of hearts
I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

Too many aces, up so many sleeves
Eight chips and a chair, that's all I need

Counting the numbers, then let luck play its part
I don't play for money, but I do for love

I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

With your house full of diamonds, you're so sharp and so proud
I'll raise the steaks higher, you're with the best in town

Fortune favors the brave
So stack my deck full of hearts
I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

Break

Your river of diamonds, is a river of dreams
it turns into nothing, without love in between

I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

I walk right up and take my chance
Look Lady luck face up and place my bet
i bluff and hold and play my hand
in the only game i love to win

Fortune favors the brave
I've stack the deck full of hearts
I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

I don't play for money, just not enough
I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love
I don't play for money, but I do for love

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
