With a Little Bit of Luck Lyrics

With a Little Bit of Luck (凭一点运气) - Alan Jay Lerner

The lord above gave man an arm of iron

So he could do his job and never shirk

 

The lord above gave man an arm of iron

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

Someone else will do the blinkin' work

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck you'll never work)

 

The lord above made liquor for temptation

 

To see if man could turn away from sin

 

The lord above made liquor for temptation

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

When temptation comes you'll give right in

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck you'll give right in)

 

Oh you can walk the straight and narrow

But with a little bit of luck you'll run amok

 

The gentle sex was made for man t'marry

To share his nest and see his food is cooked

 

The gentle sex was made for man t'marry

 

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

You can have it all and not get hooked

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck you won't get hooked)

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)

The lord above made man to help his neighbor

 

No matter where on land or sea or foam

 

The lord above made man to help his neighbor

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

When he comes around you won't be home

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck you won't be home)

 

They're always throwing goodness at you

 

But with a little bit of luck a man can duck

 

Oh it's a crime for man to go philanderin'

 

And fill his wife's poor heart with grief and doubt

Oh it's a crime for man to go philanderin'

 

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

You can see the bloodhound don't find out

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck she won't find out)

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)

 

A man was made to help support his children

 

Which is the right and proper thing to do

 

A man was made to help support his children

But

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

They'll go out and start supporting you

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck they'll work for you)

 

(he doesn't have a tuppence in his pocket)

 

(the poorest bloke you'll ever hope to meet)

(he doesn't have a tuppence in his pocket)

But

 

With a little bit of luck with a little bit of luck

(he'll be movin' up to easy street)

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

(with a little bit of luck I'm movin' up)

 

(with a little bit with a little bit)

 

 

(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)
