Lyrics

My Lucky Stars
Takes me all day to count My Lucky Stars.
 
Started at the bottom, but I made it to the stairs                                                    
Started out a cue ball, but I grew a little hair
Never did grow very tall, but that’s all right
There’s a lot of pluses to being slight!        
 
Can’t afford a car wash, but I think it’s gonna rain
Just ran out of ketchup, but I like my burgers plain
You can listen all day long – you won’t hear me complain
Don’t know all the verses, but I’m good with the refrain.
 
My Lucky Stars
Yah, it takes me all day to count My Lucky Stars.
 
Started in the suburbs, then I found my way downtown
Fell into a river but I managed not to drown
Tripped over the secret – it’s going with the flow
If you’re fighting upstream you’re going slow.
 
Took the train last Friday but I slept right through my stop
Found an awesome fountain and a great new coffee shop
Magic doesn’t happen when you’re sticking to a plan      
You can’t enjoy the fire when you are in the frying pan!
 
My Lucky Stars
Takes me all day to count My Lucky Stars.
 
For someone in their fifties, I’d say I’m in the pink
If I were the Titanic, I’d manage not to sink
Don’t tell me that my wallet’s flat – accounts are in arrears         
As long as we’ve got songs to sing, that’s music to my ears! 
 
My Lucky Stars
Yah, it takes me all day to count My Lucky Stars.
