You work hard, you pay your dues
Play by the rules but still you lose
Stick or twist, I hold my nerve
Nobody ever gets what they deserve

(Yeah it's free)
I'm a double-jointed conman
I specialize in mimicry
(Mimicry)

When I look at my life
I see how I've been used
I'll never pay back the money I spent
Never return the favors I was lent

Some have no luck with love
But I'm a lucky man
Because I mock or 'cause I choose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose

The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose

We know what it's about
All your luck has run out
Leverage your self doubt
Chewed you up and spat you out

We can leave the scene of the crime
We can turn back time
We can change
Yeah we can change our minds

Some have no luck with love
But I'm a lucky man
(He's a lucky man)
Because I mock or 'cause I choose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose

The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose

Nothing's too special for you
When you two help me through
Please say you won't refuse
But you got everything to lose

(Everything to lose)
(Everything to lose)

The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
The lucky get the luck
And the longshots lose
