I Feel Lucky

Mary Chapin Carpenter

Well i woke up this morning stumbled out of my rack
I opened up the paper to the page in the back,
it only took a minute for my fingers to find, my daily dose of
destiny under my sign
My eyes just about popped out of my head
it said the stars are stacked against you girl
get back in bed
I feel lucky, i feel lucky
No professor doom's gonna stand in my way
Mmmmmm I feel lucky today
Well i strolled down to the corner, gave my numbers to theclerk,
the pots eleven million so i called in sick to work
I bought a pack of camels, a burrito and a Barq's,
crossed against the lights and made a beeline for the park
The sky began to thunder , the wind began to moan,
I heard a voice above me sayin girl you better get back home
But I feel lucky, i feel lucky yeah
No tropical depression's gonna steal my sun away,
Mmmmmmm i feel lucky today
Well 11 million later I was sitting at the bar
i'd bought the house a double and the waitress a new car
Dwight Yoakam's in the corner trying to catch my eye, LyleLovetts
right beside me with his hand upon my thigh,
The moral of this story, is simple but its true,
Hey the stars might lie but the numbers never do
I feel lucky, I feel lucky yeah
Hey Dwight, Hey Lyle, boys, you don't have to fight,
Hot dog i feel lucky tonight
I feel lucky, I feel lucky
think I'll flip a coin, I'm a winner either way
Mmmmmmmm, I feel lucky today
