Gambler, Madonna

Her Majesty, the Queen of Pop, Madonna! In her best 80’s style, singing and whistling the almost forgotten “Gambler”. Who did think she wouldn’t appear here, huh?

“Gambler” wasn’t released in USA because Madonna’s producers feared this song could take the place of her other singles from the album “Like a Virgin” which was ready to be pressed. But it was released in many European countries, in Japan, Australia and Latin America. It was, as the producers “feared”, a big success in these countries, peaking #4 in UK Single Charts. Despite being a hit, “Gambler” was released only as a single and never was in a studio album. It’s worth noting that Madonna wrote the song for the soundtrack movie “Vision Quest”.

I’m not sure but something tells me that isn’t she who whistles. Moreover, I imagine the whisting is “done” by a keyboard. Wanna bet?

I’m a gambler, and I will take you by surprise
Gambler, I’ll aim this straight between your eyes
Gambler, yeah I know all the words to say
‘Cause I’m a gambler, I only play the game my way, yeah

Don’t want to say this but I think that I should
I’m better off forgotten if you think that I’d be good
One day you see me the next day I’m gone
Don’t fight me baby I don’t want to hold on
I’m a gambler, a gambler

You’re not happy with the way I act
You better turn around boy, don’t look back
You’re getting angry, you know I can see
You’re just jealous 'cause you can’t be me

I’m a gambler, and I will take you by surprise
Gambler, I’ll aim this straight between your eyes
Gambler, yeah I know all the words to say
‘Cause I’m a gambler, I only play the game my way, yeah

You can’t stop me now
‘Cause I’m right and I’m making advances
Let me show you how
Tonight, I’ll be taking my chances
On you, on you, on you, on you, that’s right baby

I’m a gambler, gambler
You understand what I’m talking about?

I’m a gambler, a gambler
Gambler, ‘cause I’m a gambler

You can’t stop me now
I’m on the road baby I know how
You can’t stop me now
Oh no

You can’t stop me now (repeat 3 times)

‘Cause I’m a gambler, yeah I’m a gambler
That’s right baby
