Luck Be a Lady
by Frank Sinatra



They call you lady Luck
but there is room for doubt
at times you have a very unlady-like way of running out.

You're on this date with me
and the pickin's have been lush
and yes before the 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 you've ever been a lady to begin with
please be a lady tonight.

Luck let a gentleman see, just how nice a dame
You can be
I know the way you've treated
all those guys before me
please be a lady with me

A lady doesn't leave her escort
it isn't fair, and it isn't nice

A lady doesn't wander all over the room
and then blow on some other guys' dice

Let's keep this party polite
never get out of my sight
stick with me baby
I'm the guy that you came in with

lucky be a lady tonight

Instrumental **Break

Luck let a gentleman see
just how nice a dame you can be

I know the way youve treated all those guys before me
luck be a lady with me

A lady never flirts with strangers
if she had a heart, she'd be nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
and then blow on some other guys dice

Let's keep this party polite
never get out of my sight
stick with me baby
I'm the guy that You came in with

Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady tonight
