It’s a dangerous game,
I learnt the hard way
I sit here with a back support
Popping pain killers every 4 hours
It looks so mundane, so safe
To the young person so damn boring
But it’s not, definitely not

Lying in bed the night before
Thinking of tactics, of tricks, of bids
Of high class points, no trumps, ruffing
All going through my head as I
Twist and turn in my bed
Wake up a bit stiff, take a shower

Drive the car to the game
Meet my partner, discuss tactics
Game begins, everything ok
Then I am dealt with a strong hand, 19 points
A little excitement runs through my body
And a jerk through my back
