Know when it's getting late, & when to learn from your mistakes. only call on favors if the taste of life looses all it's flavor. & when the dealin's just begun, carry a little rum to hasten the fun. never walk out before the last card's played, cause the turn of an ace may or may not fall your way. always flip a deuce over a straight. & when that queen flies on another's dime, take her in your arms while luck's still on your side. till dawn comes around with nothing left on the table to ride.
