Got an angel on my shoulder
Got a penny in my pocket
And I found a four-leaf clover
And I put it in my locket

Wished on all the stars above me
And I caught the nearest rainbow
Gonna find someone to love me
Gonna find someone to love

Well, I tossed a lot of nickels in a wishing well
And saved the fortunes that the fortune cookies tell
I got a lucky penny and a mustard seed
But a warm and tender love is all I need

And I want a love that lingers
And is stronger through and through
So, I'm gonna cross my fingers
That I'll find the boy to love me true
And I'm gonna love him too

INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

Well, I tossed a lot of nickels in a wishing well
And saved the fortunes that the fortune cookies tell
I got a lucky penny and a mustard seed
But a warm and tender love is all I need

And I want a love that lingers
And is stronger through and through
So, I'm gonna cross my fingers
That I'll find the boy to love me true
And I'm gonna love him too

And I'm gonna love him too
And I'm gonna love him too
