If you want to ring the bell not once, but twice
If you want to roll and roll those lucky dice
If you want to spend your journey's end with sweet music and love
If you want to lick this world of men and Mickey Mice
Take my advice

When you sit down, one day
Look over yourself and say
"You're very good"
Ra-ap tap on wood

When you have such success
You're conscious that you impress
The neighbourhood
Ra-ap tap on wood

When every meal you take
Is made of milk and honey
When every stock you take
Is making mints of money
When every heart you break
Is such a cinch, it's funny
Careful, Sonny
Rap-tap, rap-tap, rap-tap-tap, rap-a-tap-tap

You're knockout, you're good news
And you'll never, never lose
If you just put on your dancing shoes
And rap-tap on wood
