When Jokers are Wild

(Dick Holler, Pat Robinson)

She was the queen of my heart for a while
Moonlight, satin and wine
Holding the love of a woman much younger than I

And I was the king in her life for a while
But love often changes its mind
And I always thought ... the king takes the queen every time
But jokers were wild

When jokers are wild
Kings can get lonely
The queen's gonna hide
That look in her eye
You'll never see
A heart going crazy
But you'll lose the queen every time
When jokers are wild

Now a promise can die in the cold light of day
And wishes don't always come true
But how can it be that a king lost a queen to a fool?
Jokers were wild
