POKER ALICE

COLORADO SAW A BIG GAME

POKER ALICE V SOAPY SMITH

SHE WON SIX THOUSAND DOLLARS

WITH A SEVEN AND A DEUCE

SOAPY WASN’T HAPPY

AS THE FULL HOUSE WAS REVEALED

ALICE LEFT THE WHITE ELEPHANT

TURNED HER WHOREHOUSE LOOSE

 

ALL THE MINERS AND THE GAMBLERS

THOUGHT IT WAS A SPECIAL TIME

THEY RAN OUT OF ALL THE SALOONS

SHOUTING HIP HIP HOORAY

SHE CHAWED MORE THAN THREE TIMES

ON HER BIG CUBAN CIGAR

THIS WAS A LOT MORE MONEY

THAN SHE’D EVER WON BY FAR

 

POKER ALICE

SHE WAS A WILD GIRL

POKER ALICE

A WILD WILD GIRL

 

ALICE OFTEN SAID AS

SHE RAKED HER WINNINGS IN

“PRAISE THE LORD AND PLACE YOUR BETS.

I’LL TAKE YOUR MONEY WITH NO REGRETS.”

YOU NEVER FOUND ALICE KNITTING

SHE NEVER SAT MAKING LACE

SHE’D RATHER SPEND HER TIME

PUTTING ON HER POKER FACE

 

POKER ALICE

SHE WAS A WILD GIRL

POKER ALICE

A WILD WILD GIRL
