Frank Loesser – Luck Be A Lady lyrics

They call you Lady Luck
But there is room for doubt
At times you have a very
Unladylike way of running out

You're this 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 let a gentleman see
How nice a dame you can be
I've seen the way you've treated
Other guys you've been 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 room
And blow on some other guy's dice

So let's keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight
Stick with me baby
I'm the fellow you came in with

Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady tonight

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 let a gentleman see
How nice a dame you can be
I know the way you've treated
Other guys you've been with
Luck be a lady, a lady, be a lady with me
Luck be a lady with me

A lady wouldn't flirt with strangers
She'd have a heart, she'd have a soul
A lady wouldn't make little snake eyes at me
When I've got my life on this roll

Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em, snake eyes
Roll 'em, roll 'em, roll 'em!

So let's keep the party polite
Never get out of my sight

Never get out of my sight
Stick here, baby, stick here, baby

Stick with me, baby
I'm the fellow you came in with
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady
Luck be a lady tonight

Coming out, coming out, coming out
Right

    From the Broadway Show, "Guys and Dolls'" and sung by Sky Masterson in the underground crap game held, coincidentally that night, in the sewers. Sky has made a bet with every player in the game; if he loses they win $1,000 each. If he wins, they will accompany him to the Save-a-Soul mission. Sky has fallen in love with the head of the mission, Sarah Brown, but in pursuing her, the mission has been neglected. On the previous night, it was even the location for Nathan Detroit's floating crap game. To keep the mission from closing, Sky has to bring in a load of 'sinners.' Though the song was a standard in Frank Sinatra's repertoire, his character did not sing it in the movie version of the show. It was sung by, wait for it, Marlon Brando.
