BLACK JACK DAVY (IN ATLANTIC CITY)
(Mark Cohen)

Oh, Black Jack Davy come a-riding by, all in his gold Mercedes
He dressed so flashy and he spoke so fine, and he's charmed the
heart of a lady

"Turn off, turn off your TV soaps, turn off that Richard Simmons
Come along with me and I'll make you rich, the envy of other women"

So she's turned off her TV set, climbed into his Mercedes
"Go and tell my husband that I've gone away with Black Jack Davy"

"Oh, where is it we're going to, and how did you get that name-o?"
"We're going to Atlantic City," he said, "cause blackjack is my game-o

And how do you like my fancy car, with seats of Spanish leather?"
"Your car's OK, but did you say that we'd get rich together?"

"I'll buy for you a silken gown with shoes of Spanish leather"
"Well that would be all right," she said, "but cash would be much
better"

They rode out to the Jersey shore, they drove across the channel-o
The lady sat and passed the time with tapes of Barry Manilow

"This town's OK," she said to him, "though the prices are outrageous
I like the Boardwalk and the beach, but the shows are better in Vegas"

He found a blackjack table there, bought chips of many colors
The lady was surprised to see each one was fifty dollars

He played one hand and he played some more, but not one did he win-o
She said, "I thought you were a shark, but you look more like a
minnow"

He played one hand and he played some more, but not one did he win-o
She said, "Why don't I try my luck, cause yours is getting thin-o"

The very first card that she was dealt, it was the Ace of Spadey
The very next card that she was dealt, it was the Diamond Lady

Her husband soon arrived and said, "Come home with me, my lady"
"Oh, no, I'm thirteen hundred up, if I left now I'd be crazy"

"Would you forsake your house and home in Cherry Hill New Jersey?
Would you forsake your wedded love, not showing any mercy?"

"Last night I slept in a mobile home in Cherry Hill, New Jersey
Tonight I'll sleep on satin sheets, and dine on food so fancy"

"Oh will you then go riding off, away with Black Jack Davy?"
"Oh, no, he's lost his car and all, and I hear he's joined the Navy"

Oh, Black Jack Davy come a-riding by, all in his gold Mercedes
He dressed so flashy and he spoke so fine, and he's charmed the
heart of a lady
