SKY:
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 this date with me,
The pickings have been lush
And yet 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
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck let a gentleman see,
How nice a dame you can be
I know the way you've treated other guys you've been with
Luck be a lady with me
A lady doesn't leave her escort,
It isn't fair, it isn't nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And blow on some other guy's dice
So, let's keep the party polite,
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby,
I'm the fella you came in with,
Luck be a lady,
Luck be a lady,
Luck be a lady tonight
THE GUYS:
Luck be a lady tonight,
Luck be a lady tonight,
Luck if you've ever been a lady to begin with
Luck be a lady tonight!
SKY: GUYS:
Luck let a gentleman see, Luck let a gentleman see
How nice a dame you can be, How nice a dame you can be
I know the way you've treated Luck be a lady,
Other guys you've been with Be a lady
Luck be a lady with me Be a lady with me!
SKY:
A lady wouldn't flirt with strangers,
She'd have heart, she'd have a soul.
A lady wouldn't make little sneak eyes at me, Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em
Sneak eyes
When I've bet my life on this roll. Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em
So lets keep the party polite, So lets keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby, Stick here, baby!
I'm the fella you came in with, Stick here, baby!
Luck be a lady... Luck be a lady...
Luck be a lady... Luck be a lady...
Luck be a lady, What's up, man?
And roll the dice
Comin' out, comin' out
Tonight! Comin' out, comin' out right!
Ah! Ah!
