Sooner Cheat Death Than Fool Love

I tried my hand at poker
That old, godless game
I was dealt five aces
I swear on Peter's name

Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love

Love is not a tower, as the poets say
Even the loftiest prison can be escaped
I wish I never met you, of that I'm sure
I ain't any better off than I was before

I'll sooner reach Taenarum
Into the lower world
Steal the Helm of Darkness
Than love another girl

Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love

Love is not a chemical, nor molecular clone
I can't remember the last time I felt so alone
I'm sick as a dog, still my love rings true
I ain't any better off than I was with you

Cheat on death and taxes
Cheat the money from wealth
But if you try to fool love
You'll only fool yourself

Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love
Sooner cheat death than fool love
