Get Lucky Lyrics

by Mark Knopfler

I'm better with my muscles
Than I am with my mouth
I work the fair grounds in the summer
Or go pick fruit down south

And when I feel them chilly winds
Where the weather goes I'll follow
Pack up my traveling things
Go with the swallows

And I might get lucky now and then
You win some
You might get lucky now and then
You win some

I wake up every morning
Keep an eye on what I spend
Gotta think about eating
Gotta think about paying the rent

I always think it's funny
It gets me every time
I wonder about the happiness and money
Tell it to the breadline

But you might get lucky now and then
You win some
You might get lucky now and then
Yeah, you win some

Now I'm rambling through this meadow
Happy as a man can be
Think I'll just lay me down
Under this old tree

On and on we go
Through this old world of shuffling
If you've got a truffle dog
You can go truffling

And you might get lucky now and then
You win some
You might get lucky now and then
Yeah, you win some
