Ace of Spades – Lemmy


lemmyThat’s the way I like it , baby
I don’t want to live forever.

 

 

 

When I go through customs the officers look a the back page and, seeing the entry for  my place of birth, and always ask:
“what is  this ‘Burslem’?”

Lemmy Killmister,
Born in Burslem,
Killed by the Death

My ears are still ringing…

 

Ace Of Spades

If you like to gamble, I tell you I’m your man,
You win some, lose some, all the same to me,
The pleasure is to play, makes no difference what you say,
I don’t share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades
Playing for the high one, dancing with the devil,
Going with the flow, it’s all the game to me,
Seven or Eleven, snake eyes watching you,
Double up or quit, double stake or split,
The Ace Of Spades
You know I’m born to lose, and gambling’s for fools,
But that’s the way I like it baby,
I don’t wanna live for ever,
And don’t forget the joker!

Pushing up the ante, I know you wanna see me,
Read ’em and weep, the dead man’s hand again,
I see it in your eyes, take one look and die,
The only thing you see, you know it’s gonna be,
The Ace Of Spades
