Jack O'Diamonds, on the move
Jack O'Diamonds, one-eyed knave
Bumps his head, on the ground
Shouldn't stay
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card to play
Jack O'Diamonds, yeah Jack O'Diamonds
Oh sure, he's not that lovely
Left me here to stand
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card to land
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card

Jack O'Diamonds but then it switches
Jack O'Diamonds, yeah Jack O'Diamonds
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card to play
Jack O'Diamonds, yeah Jack O'Diamonds
Oh sure, he's not that lovely
Left me here to stand
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card to play
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card
Jack O'Diamonds is a hard card

Jack O'Diamonds but then it switches
Jack O'Diamonds
