They call you lady luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very un-lady like
Way of running out

Your on a date with me
The pickings have been lush
And yet before this evening is over
You might give me the brush

You might forget your manners
You might refuse to stay
And so the best
That I can do is pray

Luck be a lady tonight
Luck be a lady tonight
Luck if you’ve ever been
A lady to begin with
Luck be a lady tonight

Luck how I’m longing to see
How good a friend you can be
Stick with me sister
I’m the one that you came in with
Luck be a lady with me

A lady doesn’t leave her escort
It isn’t fair, it isn’t nice
A lady doesn’t wander all over the joint
And blow on some other guy’s dice

So, let’s keep the party polite
Hmm, never get out of my sight
Stick with me sister
I’m the gal that I came in with
Luck be a lady tonight

A lady wouldn’t flirt with strangers
She’d have heart, she would have a soul
A lady wouldn’t make
Little sneak eyes at you
When I’ve bet my life on this roll

So, let’s keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me pal
’Cause I’m the gal
That you came in with

Luck be a lady
Oh, luck be a lady
Luck be lady tonight
