In Memoriam
Oscar Brown Jr.
October 10, 1926 - May 29, 2005
You Play the Hand 
You're Dealt
Oscar Brown Jr. 
You lay a bet 
To see a card 
The one you get 
To play is hard 
What can you say?
I've always felt
You play the hand you're dealt 
One holds an ace
One has the trump
Whoever pays
Becomes the chump
Your winning ways
Can quickly melt
You play the hand you're dealt 
A club, or spade
Diamond or heart
Whether you played
Suits dumb or smart
You had to stay
With cards you held
You play the hand you're dealt 
To change the deal
Or beat the odds
We all appeal
To different gods
But though to pray
You may have knelt
You play the hand you're dealt 
I've thought it out
I'm sure I'm right
Life is a bout
We have to fight
Though blows may stray
Below the belt
You play the hand you're dealt 
Some folks we see
And may condemn
But who are we
To scoff at them?
Who knows how they
Have been compelled
You play the hand you're dealt.
