Liner Notes: 

I went with something electronic to avoid getting in a rut, there's somethinng here I like here especially from a skirmish, but it's a bit overly representative. I sort of like how often I was able to pull out terms that almost sound profound within the song, many don't, but those that do...

EDIT: I just listened to this and apparently I just forgot to sing the first chorus. If it was multiple takes I might have an excuse, but I'm not sure what happened.

Lyrics: 

I could be a king. A queen, a jack, a joker
Only I know, what I’m holding.
I can be a flush or straight, a pair, or fake
Only I know, what I’m holding.

I could be high or low, and open or close
Only I know, what I’m holding
I could be a suit, a cover, a counter or deal
Only I know, only I know

I’ve got a tell.
That gives away.
I’ve got a tell.
That gives away.
I’ve got a tell.
That gives away.
I want to play with you.

So pick a card.

So pick a card.

I could be a loner, a trick a loser a bid
Only I know, what I’m holding.
I could be a pass, a take, shuffle or rob
Only I know, what I’m holding.

I could be a bet, a play, a fold, a slam
Only I know, what I’m holding.
I could unload, turn-down or need a partner
Only I know, what I’m holding.

I’ve got a tell.
That gives away.
I’ve got a tell.
That gives away.

That gives away.
That gives away.
I want to play with you.

So pick a card.

So pick a card.

I might play my cards close.
I might lay them on the table.
I might challenge or provoke.
I might sandbag if I’m able
I might ante up the stakes.
I might fold before losing.
I might establish the wrong suit.
It’s the game I’m playing.

So pick a card.

So pick a card.

So pick a card.

So pick a card.

I am going to have to revisit this after a few drinks sometime. What an excellent groove. You're making me miss clubbing!!

wow, this is catchy and really a great sounding demo. Great lyrics that are enhanced by that bouncing and rubbery funky backing- great job!

Great lyrics that really capture the pick a card song prompt. I really like the bass in this.

Love the funky music and the strong lyrical rhythm. This is a great interpretation of the skirmish prompt.
