Lyrics

WE SAT AROUND THE TABLE AND WE WERE EAGER TO START
WE MADE OURSELVES COFFEE AND WE DEALT OUT THESE CARDS
LITTLE DID I KNOW THE TIME OR THE DATE
THAT THIS WAS THE EVENING I DECIDED OUR FATE

MY ADVANCING ARMIES WERE SPREAD ALL OVER THE MAP
THINGS WERE RUNNING QUITE SMOOTHLY WHEN I HAD A MISHAP
JUST WHEN I THOUGH MY TROOPS WERE REALLY WELL STACKED
THE NEIGHBOURING NATION DECIDED TO ATTACK - ME!

HE THREW A SIX AND A FIVE AND A FOUR
SMASH! WENT MY ARMIES ON TO THE FLOOR
HE THREW A SIX AND A FIVE AND A THREE
THAT'S WHEN I LOST ANOTHER TERRITORY

SO HE TAKES HIS "FREE MOVE" AND HIS CARD VERY SMUGLY
THAT'S WHEN I KNEW THIS GAME WAS GONNA TURN UGLY
MY REINFORCED TROOPS PREPARED TO ADVANCE
THIS WAS MY MOMENT MY CHANCE TO FIGHT BACK

HE'D SCATTERED HIS UNITS ONLY ONE IN ALASKA
I CAUGHT HIM OUT WHEN I CAME SWOOPING IN FROM KAMCHATKA!
BRILLIANT DECEPTION MY FINEST OF PLANS
'CAUSE WHILE HE WEREN'T LOOKING I WIPED OUT JAPAN!

I THREW A SIX AND A FOUR AND A TWO
WITH ONLY ONE ARMY HE COULD ONLY LOSE
I THREW A SIX AND A SIX AND A FIVE
NONE OF HIS ARMIES WAS LEFT ALIVE

IT STARTED WITH DICE ALL JOKEY AND FUN
BUT WHEN IT TURNED NASTY WE BRKE OUT THE GUNS
WE'D LOST OUR HEADS AND TEMPERS WERE RUNNING WILD
'CAUSE WE'D BEGUN TO USE THOSE AWFUL NUCLEAR MISSILES

WITH HEAVIER LOSSES OUR EMOTIONS DID RISE
IT WAS THEN THAT I NOTICED ONLY DEATH IN HIS EYES!
I UNDERSTOOD AS WE WENT ON RED ALERT
THAT THIS WAS THE DEVIL AND HE WAS DESTROYING THE EARTH! 

I THREW A ONE AND A ONE AND A ONE
SWEATING WITH HORROR WHAT HAD I DONE?
I THREW A NIL AND A NIL AND A NIL
AND NOW WE ARE DELIVERED UNTO THE DEVIL!
