"And while I'm crying in the dark,
The joker plays everyone his lark."
"The queen of diamonds holds the key,
But she won't ever come to me..."
"While I'm here dreaming of her,
While the night is dressed in furs,
Strikes an ace behind my back."
"Tears, tears, and all is gone,
Tears run down my face of stone.
The queen of hearts will soon be bride...
... A king is riding by her side."
"The queen of spades has lost her way,
She shall not arrive today."
"Moon, moon, you knew I was wrong,
Before I left the place where I belong.
The queen of clubs has told me so."
"Oh! But everytime I want to leave,
A hidden jack falls down my sleeve."
