ACE IN THE HOLE
(Cole Porter)
(From the show "Let's Face It," 1941)

Sad times may follow your tracks.
Bad times may bar you from Sak's
At times, when Satan in slacks
Breaks down your self-control.

Maybe, as often it goes,
Your Abie may tire of his Rose;
So, baby, this rule I propose:
Always have an ace in the hole.

REPEAT
