From a Jack to a King With no regret I stacked the cards last night And lady luck played her hand just right To make me King of your heart For just a little while I thought that I might lose the game Then just in time I saw the twinkle in your eye. From a Jack to a King From loneliness to a wedding ring I played an Ace and I won a Queen You made me King of your heart.
