How many times have i heard the same old line
How many times have i fallen for that lie
Spare me the soft soaping...
It's a sucker punch and it's packed behind a smile
Deal me a hand and we'll double up the stakes
Called yer bluff but made just one mistake
The dice were loaded and the cards were marked
The game was fixed right from the start
It's a sucker punch and that's what we call the breaks.
The large print giveth, the small print cuts yer throat
One hand's shakin' while the other's slippin' in your coat
Hoodwinked and shanghaied, coldcocked on the dotted line
It's a sucker punch and it's comin' from behind
Spare me the soft-soaping...
