If a cheated man's a loser and the cheater never wins
And if beggars can't be choosers till they're weak and wealthy men
And the old keep gettin' older and the young must do the same
And it's never gettin' better who's to bless and who's to blame?
All the cards're on the table you done laid your money down
Don't complain about your chances boy it's the only game in town
And the meaning doesn't matter nor the way you play the game
To the winner or the loser who's to bless and who's to blame?
--- Instrumental ---
Keep your hands above the table and your backs against the wall
Toss your chips in with your chances boy let 'em lay the way they fall
'Cause the moral doesn't matter broken rules are all the same
To the broken or the breaker who's to bless and who's to blame?
(Who's to bless and who's to blame?...)
