Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find.

When you play the game of life
You've got trouble, you've got strife
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find
Life is like a game of cards
But it's very, very hard
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find

Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find

Met a girl and lost my heart
Lack of money made us part
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find
She said life ain't just a bet
But I've never won it yet
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find

Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find

(Instrumental Break)

Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find

So if you throw diamonds back (?)
You will never look back
Jack o' diamond is a hard card to find
You'll have learnt your lesson
But you may ??? ??? ???
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find

Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find

????????????????
??????????????????
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find
?????????????
????????????
Jack o' diamonds is a hard card to find.

Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find
Jack o' diamonds, Jack o' diamonds
Diamonds is a hard card to find.
Diamonds is a hard card to find.
