Well, I woke up this morning
Stumble out of my rack
I opened up the paper
To the page in the back

It only took a minute
For my finger to find
My daily dose of destiny
Under my sign

My eyes just about to pop
Out of my head
It said, the stars stacked are
Against you, girl, get back in bed

I feel lucky, I feel lucky, yeah
No Professor Doom
Gonna stand in my way
I feel lucky today

Well, I strolled down to the corner
Gave my numbers to the clerk
The pot's eleven million
So I called in sick to work

I bought a pack of Camels
A Burritos and a box
Crossed against the line
Made a B-line for the park

The sky began to thunder
Wind began to moan
I heard a voice above me saying
Girl, you better get back home

But I feel lucky, oh, oh, oh
I feel lucky, yeah
No tropical depression
Gonna steal my sun away
I feel lucky today

Now eleven million later
I was sitting at the bar
I bought the house a double
And the waitress a new car

Dwight Yokam's in the corner
Trying to catch my eye
Lyle Lovett's right beside me
With his hand upon my thigh

Oh, love the story
It's simple but it's true
Hey, the stars might lie
But the numbers never do

But I feel lucky, oh, oh, oh
I feel lucky, yeah
Hey Dwight, hey Lyle
Boys, you don't have to fight
Hot dog, I feel lucky tonight

I feel lucky, I feel lucky, yeah
Think I'll flip a coin
I am a winner either way
I feel lucky today
