Mensagem:  Deuce is a card marked "2".

In the US military deuce is slang for ""2".  A "MA Deuce" is a 50 caliber machine gine (MA2). and a "deuce and a half" is a 2 1/2 ton truck."

Deuce also means feces..  I would understand "He is worth a deuce" as "He is worth a s**t".  In other words, "e homem que e homem".

Is that what the composer meant?  Who knows?  Lyrics can have different meanings to different people.
