I know some people who are lucky in health,
While others find themselves lucky in wealth.
There are those who are lucky in getting ahead,
And some who brag about being lucky in bed.
I’ve never been lucky in anything, to my disparage
Except I admit I’ve been very lucky in marriage.
My wife and I have been married more than 45 years.
I suppose that kind of lucky deserves a few cheers.
I buy lottery tickets, but I don’t get carried away.
Lottery tickets, except for a lucky few, seldom pay.
You won’t find me with any kind of lucky charm.
I rarely bet and certainly would never bet the farm.
I can’t see the joy in pouring coins into slot machines
What I’ve won from them doesn’t amount to a hill of beans.
I don’t play cards, bet on the horses or this week’s game.
I find thinking one day I’ll win big, is thinking kind of lame.
I can kick myself every time I wind up in some casino
I spend most of the time wishing I had decided not to go.
I don’t understand people who are addicted to gambling
Insisting that winning and losing is like yang and ying.
No, I’m not one who’s big on chance, just not that kind.
I’d consider myself lucky if I just had some peace of mind.
