SOME PEOPLE CALL ME LUCKY

Some people call me lucky,
Did you watch the news the other morning?
Last week a twister took out the other side of town.
I just left there an hour before they heard the sirens sound.
They showed sad clips of what happened to those poor folks on my tv.
It could have been me.

Some people call me lucky,
I stepped aside for that old lady,
I was buyin' milk and we both got tickets for the lottery,
She waved her cane as she walked out and got in her Mercury.
That lonely spinster hit the jackpot, I saw it on my tv.
It could have been me.

Sometimes I think I've seen it all.
Some people movin' up, some set up just to fall.
Sometimes I'm a victim of fate.
Sometimes I'm a bit too early, sometimes I'm just too late.

Some people call me lucky,
Lisa's on the church steps Sunday morning,
White gown and a bouquet that she tosses in the air,
I duck so no one sees me, I wish I wasn't there,
The groom looks so happy, but if I'd just done some things differently,
It could have been me.
It would have been me.
Some people call me lucky.
