LUCKY ME

MUSIC BY HENRY GROSS AND ANTHONY BATTAGLIA, LYRICS BY HENRY GROSS © 2001 ACHTUNES, ASCAP

 

THE WAITRESS ASKS ME IF I’M FAMOUS
I SAY NO, BUT I’M HUNGRY
SHE SAYS THE EGGS ARE COLD,THE TOAST IS BURNT,
THE BACON’S MOSTLY FAT AND I SAY
LUCKY ME, I LIKE IT LIKE THAT

NOWHERE TO STAY I RING A DOORBELL
THE LANDLORD LOOKS ME UP AND DOWN AND SAYS
THE WALLS ARE THIN, THE ROOMS ARE CRAMPED,
THERE’S NO PLACE TO HANG YOUR HAT, AND I SAY
LUCKY ME, I LIKE IT LIKE THAT

CAUSE EVERY DAY I PLAY IT STRAIGHT,
I NEVER TEMPT THE HAND OF FATE,
IN A WORLD OF GIVE AND TAKE
I TAKE WHAT’S GIVEN

I FIND A GYPSY FORTUNE TELLER
IN A RUN DOWN SHACK ACROSS THE TRACKS
SHE SAYS MONEY ISN’T IN THE CARDS
HARD WORK’LL BREAK YOUR BACK, AND I SAY
LUCKY ME, I LIKE IT LIKE THAT

REPEAT BRIDGE

STANDING AT THE GATES OF HEAVEN,
SAINT PETER SMILES AT ME AND SAYS
THE FOOD IS GREAT, THE HOTEL’S GRAND,
YOUR BAGS HAVE BEEN UNPACKED, AND I SAY
LUCKY ME, I LIKE IT LIKE THAT

LUCKY ME, I LIKE IT LIKE THAT
