Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
They occupied our country
We were almost overrun
I knew if I did not react
They'd kill us, everyone
Verse 2
I promised to my mother
She meant so much to me
That for every single tear she shed
There'd be a victory
Verse 3
Who's holding aces?
And who's gonna fold
And who's got a secret?
And who's feeling bold?
Verse 4
It's a winning combination
If a lady understands
That the King and the Queen of Hearts
Could be a perfect hand
Verse 5
So know what you are holding
But be prepared to bluff
There are many ways to win a game
And skill is not enough
Verse 6
In the Senate or in business
But most of all in love
You ladies all know how things work
You know how to get things done
Verse 7
And if you open the door for a lady
You open a door for yourself
And a stranger's only someone
Who you have yet to help
Verse 8
Who's holding aces?
And who's gonna fold?
And who's got a secret?
And who's feeling bold?
Verse 9
It's a winning combination
If a lady understands
That the King and the Queen of Hearts
Could be a perfect hand
