Miss Fortune Lyrics

by Aloe Blacc

CHORUS 1
met a girl by the name of miss fortune,
her daddy was a very rich man
he told me "son proceed with caution,
if you wanna take my little girls hand
see the money that i have might be good for some,
its downright danger to another
and little miss fortune is sure to become,
unfortunately just like her mother

"you see back when i was young and dumb, i had a choice
before me and mama fortune got wed
between riding in a bus or driving a new rolls royce, yeah
and i decided what i wanted was the bread

"but the problem with having everything you want
is you never really know what you need, hey
now miss fortune is this bored little debutant, and its my fault
so i suggest you take my heed.

CHORUS 2
"so you met my little girl miss fortune,
and you know that im a very rich man
i told you to proceed with caution,
if you wanna take my little girls hand
see the money that i have might be good for some,
its downright danger to another
and little miss fortune is sure to become,
unfortunately just like her mother"

hey, well i thanked miss fortunes father, said, i understand
but youre tryin to talk me down, yes you are
listen here you aint have to bother, cause I'm a real strong man
im sure i could turn your daughter around

see what she needs is someone who can take control
let the girl know her place and how to play her role
tell her all the money in the world cannot replace her soul
and she need to stop acting like shes 12 years old

when she put the ring on her finger, everything started to change
and i looked at myself in the mirror, and oh i was looking strange
she had me out everyday spending money, and all kinds of ridiculous things
see i forgot what life was all about, little miss fortune was to blame

CHORUS 3
so i married this girl miss fortune,
and her(?) daddy was a very rich man
and even though he told me take caution,
i still took his little girls hand
see money dont do everybody the same,
and its downright danger to a brother
and little miss fortune surely became,
unfortunately just like her mother, hey

you gotta watch out for miss fortune,
brothers you must proceed with caution
dont let lady luck pass you by,
whoah, might as well give good grace a try

all i wanted was a little dance with lady luck but she wont give me a chance
and what i could use is some good old grace, but she refuses to show her face
all i wanted was a little dance with lady luck but she wont give me a chance
and what i could use is some good old grace, but she refuses to show her face

miss fortune, miss fortune
