"Luck Be a Lady [From Guys and Dolls]" as written by Maurizio Gianetto, Sabrina Salerno and Ivano Baldassarre....
They call you Lady Luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady-like way
Of running out

You're 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 been a lady to begin with
Luck, be a lady tonight

Luck, let a gentleman see
Just 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 never leaves her escort
It isn't fair, it isn't nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And 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 tonight

A lady never flirts with strangers
She'd have a heart, she'd be nice
A lady doesn't wander all over the room
And 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 tonight
