Bill Jackson was a poor old dub
Who joined the Darktown Poker Club
But cursed the day he told them he would join
His money used to go like it had wings
If he yelled queens, someone had kings
And each night he would contribute all his coin
Then he said I'm gonna play em tight tonight

Because ooh that's rough
Take five, five, then stop, that's enough
Now when you bet put up the chips
Because I don't like it when you shy
Then if you get busted go on out and get some
I'm gonna be here by and by

Everytime before you deals
Then if anythings wrong, I must see
Cause I mean, you always ain't no, er
Keep playin that game according to Mr. Hoyle
You all play this game accordin to me

Now sittin right there in that there clan
There chance to be a one-eyed man
And Bill kept watchin him out the corner of his eye
When ole one-eye would deal and then
Would cost that Bill another five or ten
