Act Two: In which a transaction is offered and accepted, with certain repercussions.

X. The Deal

The Devil:
I made him a deal
I gave him a telephone call
And I gave him a chance
At what no man can resist
Every mortal's wish
And like most mortals,
He values gold above his soul
An easy life above true love
And pretty soon, he will be in
The palm of my hand

Card Player:
He made me a deal
He made me a telephone call
He said I could be anything that I wanted to be
And I'd be a success
He made me a deal
And I took the telephone call
He said all I had to do
Is what I do best
Yea it's what I do best
It's a sure thing!
So I gotta leave you darling
For just a little while
Don't you cry my darling,
I'll be back before you know I'm gone
Don't you cry,
All I do I do for you my darling, darling, darling
I'll be back soon
Don't you cry
My darling, O, my love, don't you cry!
Wish me luck, with a kiss
Kiss your man goodbye
Wish me luck with a kiss
And I'll be a success
