Lyrics

Where Luck Can Find Me
Music: Nikki O'Neill Lyrics: Paul Menser

When I was in school
My teachers told me
To mind all my p's and q's
I kept my head down
Did all my homework
All it gave me was the blues

Now I have a job
Working the drive-thru
Making up songs in my mind
My name is Mindy
How can I help you?
Eight hours is a long time

I hear fortune favors the strong
Well, I've been pulling my weight all along

I want to go where luck can find me
I know it can't be far away
Please give me one break, will you kindly
I will be grateful until my dying day

It's Saturday night
I'm eating takeout
I'm watching a re-run of "Friends"
A college degree
Basement apartment
This can't be how it all ends

There's a cafe
I like to go to
People sing and pass the hat
I hear their songs
And you know I'm thinking
"I could do better than that"

I know fortune favors the bold
I've got to break out before I get old

I want to go where luck can find me
I know it can't be far away
Please give me one break, will you kindly
I will be grateful until my dying day

Maybe you were brought up the same as me
A typical kid in the land of the free
Maybe you know the frustration I face
Feeling like you don't fit in any place
I can't accept this is how it all goes
I'm gonna try on a new set of clothes
Head for the city or back to the land
There's gotta be people who understand

I want to go where luck can find me
I know it can't be far away
Please give me one break, will you kindly
I will be grateful...

I will be grateful...
I will be grateful...
until my dying day
