lyrics

it was a lousy deal on both our parts
you bet me a body and I raised you a heart
but you foiled my plan when you called my bluff
I got a decent hand but is it good enough
to win?

I had it figured out until you dealt me in

‘cause I had set my sights on a one night stand
I had an appetite for a handsome man
and you had all the clout of a seasoned flirt
I said ‘hey, cut it out before someone gets hurt’
I knew,

a night is not enough to get enough of you

and oh, that first kiss!
my gambling days are gonna end like this
I never won enough to fill my tank
but that first kiss was money in the bank
money in the bank!

so now the stakes are high and I’m sweating cold
I’ve got a losing hand but I’m too proud to fold
I got a pokerface, I’m made of steely stuff
and I can lose with grace but am I strong enough
for this?

you know the odds were laid when you played that kiss

oh, that first kiss!
my gambling days are gonna end like this
I never won enough to fill my tank
but that first kiss was money in the bank
money in the bank!

come and get in bed with me and take off all your clothes
you can quit your job and I will cancel all my shows
‘cause I have played a lot of hands and I’ve never lost a one
still I go home lonely when the game is done
so I don’t mind the losing if it’s you who’s won

oh, that first kiss!
my gambling days are gonna end like this
I never won enough to fill my tank
but that first kiss was money in the bank

money in the bank
