A Lucky Guy Lyrics By Rickie Lee Jones

    oh he’s a lucky guy
    oh he’s a lucky guy
    he doesn’t worry about me
    when i’m gone
    he goes to sleep at night
    he don’t turn off the light
    and wonder how to find me
    or if i’m alone
    oh he’s a lucky guy
    i wish i was like him
    ’cause when he talks about me
    he don’t look this way
    he’s a lucky guy

    he used to walk with me
    he used to talk to me
    see we have these secrets
    that no one else could hear
    well he’s not the only one
    no no not the only one
    but what happens to them
    do they matter
    do they disappear
    into a lonely girl
    now i’m a lonely girl
    i want somebody with me in the world
    oh he’s a lucky guy

    fortune walks right in the door
    and here i am
    just like before

    well i’m not gonna turn around
    i’m not his pretty clown
    i’m not the one caught
    like he thought
    he was the last one i had there
    ’cause i did a foolish thing
    a real real stupid thing
    i told him i love him
    and i want him there
    when i knew he wouldn’t come
    and i knew he didn’t care
    and i’ll cry awhile
    i’ll cry awhile
    but when i wake up
    tomorrow is a new day

    i’m a lucky guy
    hey i’m a lucky guy
    real real lucky guy
    hey i’m a lucky guy
