"With a Little Luck" as written by and Paul Mccartney....
With a little luck we can help it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little love we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding

There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end
The willow turns his back on inclement weather
And if he can do it we can do it

Just me and you
And a little luck we can clear it up
We can bring it in for a landing
With a little luck we can turn it on
There can be no misunderstanding

There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end
The willow turns his back on inclement weather
And if he can do it

Just me and you
With a little push we could set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little love we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding

With a little luck, with a little luck
With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck

With a little love, we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding
With a little push, we could set it off
We could send it rocketing skywards

With a little love, we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding forwards

    General CommentGreat track. Underrated. Lyrically I think it's simply an optimistic 'relationship' song. Kind of along the lines of We Can Work It Out.

    If you've only heard this song on the radio you owe it to yourself to hear it on CD. It's got layers and layers of keyboards and little nuances that get lost on radio. Also, the single version of this cut out the best verse - the part about Rocketing Skywards, sung in Pauls 'screamer' voice, like Oh Darling.

    General CommentI think this is a message from Paul to John about how they should write together again. In an early Lennon song, "Isolation", Lennon sings "the world is just a little town". In this song, Paul sings here "can't you feel the town exploding". If you substitute "world" for "town" in " "With a Little Luck" it's like Paul is saying the world would "explode" if we resumed our songwriting together. Other clues in the lyrics are, "there is no end to what we can do together, etc. we can do it, just me and you". I happen to be one of those who thinks that this same message to John existing quite a few songs of the 70s. This song also is good musically in an of itself and there is more than a passing resemblance between this song and "My Life" by Billy Joel. Structurally they are almost identical although note by note you wouldn't see it. Obviously Joel was influenced by McCartney there.
