Deuce is the seventh track off KISS' self-titled debut album. One of the most popular songs, still played live today and on almost every compilation album.“Deuce” barely changed when recorded for the first album from the demo that had been recorded months earlier indicating that it hadn’t required any further refinement and had already evolved to its final form with the addition of Ace. Essentially, the song had been polished up both in terms of arrangement and execution. For the first album, a slightly longer version was recorded, nearly matching the original outro solo on the demo. It was shortened having the fade-out begin just after Gene’s final scream. This resulted in the song being shortened by some 15 seconds. A more complete recording of the song was released 15 years later on “Smashes, Thrashes & Hits” as a remix version.


In Their Own WordsEdit

Gene Simmons - "Deuce was written in my head on a bus.I heard the lick, the riff, the melody EVERYTHING. It was a very linear song. We arranged it on the spot and I knew it would become a Kiss staple for years. It was always the opening song, and at the end of the night if we had no other tunes, we would play it again"

Paul Stanley - "The begining of the song was me ripping off the Raspberries...its me bastardizing "Go All The Way""

Ace Frehley - "Its my favorite Kiss song. When I auditioned they said "were gunna play you a song and then you try playing along." The song was Deuce, and they played it as a three piece, and it was in the key of A. I thought thats easy enough, so I got up and wailed for four minutes playing lead work over it."

LyricsEdit

Get up

And get your grandma outta here

Pick up

Old Jim is workin' hard this year

And baby

Do the things he says to do


Baby, if you're feeling good

And baby if you're feeling nice

You know your man is workin' hard

He's worth a deuce


Honey

Don't put your man behind his years

And baby

Stop cryin' all your tears

Baby

Do the things he says to do

Do it


Baby, if you're feeling good

And baby if you're feeling nice

You know your man is workin' hard

He's worth a deuce


And baby, if you're feeling good

Yes baby if you're feeling nice

You know your man is workin' hard

Yeah
