Luck Be A Lady lyrics

They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady-like way
Of running out.

Your on a date with me,
The pickings have been lush
And yet before this evening is over you might give me the brush
You might forget your manners,
You might refuse to stay,
And so the best that I can do is pray...

Luck be a lady tonight, luck be a lady tonight.
Luck if youve ever been a lady to begin with,
Luck be a lady tonight.

Luck how Im longing to see,
How good a friend you can be.
Stick with me sister, Im the one that you came in with,
Luck be a lady with me.

A lady doesnt leave her escort,
It isnt fair, it isnt nice.
A lady doesnt wander all over the joint
And blow on some other guys dice.

So, lets keep the party polite,
Hmm...
Never get out of my sight,
Stick with me sister,
Im the gal that I came in with,
Luck be a lady tonight!

A lady wouldnt flirt with strangers,
Shed have heart, she would have a soul.
A lady wouldnt make little sneak eyes at you,
When Ive bet my life on this roll.

So, lets keep the party polite,
Neeeee...ver get out of my sight,
Stick with me pal,
cause Im the gal that you came in with,
Luck be a lady...
Luck be a lady...
Luck be lady tonight!
