Sinatra, Loesser, and May: “Luck be a Lady”! (1963)

Re-posted by Nicholas Stix
 

Arranged by Billy May

Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser

They call you lady luck,
But there is room for doubt,
At times you have a very un-lady-like way,
Of running out.

You're on this date with me,
The pickins 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 know 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.

Let's keep this party polite,
Never get out of my sight,
Stick with me baby,
I'm the fella you came in with,
Luck be a lady tonight.

Luck let a gentleman see,
Just how nice a dame you can be,
I know 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 and it's not nice,
A lady doesn't wander all over the room,
And blow on some other guy's dice.

So lets keep the party polite,
Never get out of my sight,
Stick with me baby,
I'm the guy that you came in with,
Luck be a lady,
Luck be a lady,
Luck be a lady tonight!
