FORTUNE FAVOURS THE LUCKY


This is for all of you people who think
That fortune favours the plucky.
Whether you're brave
Or a cowardly knave,
It's all the same
In this ludicrous game,
Where fortune favours the lucky.


And this is for all of you people who think
You'll find your brass where it gets mucky.
Whether you're rich
Or ain't got a stitch,
It's all the same
In this so-called game,
Where fortune favours the lucky.


You can pray to your gods
To better the odds.
You can swear you won't sin
If he helps you to win.
But it's only luck
That leads you to duck
One split milli-second
Before the unreckoned-
For, lethal, unstoppable
Something comes along.
