It would have been about nineteen seventy-seven
Outside The College pub at ‘Closing Time’
When I nearly stumbled over an old man
Lying by a slate stone wall.
He was dressed in dark clothes and had grey hair
That lay across his face
So that his features were obscured
And he was trying to pull himself up to his feet
I stepped towards him and help...

The Midas Touch
I saved the life of Lady Luck
And as a thank you I was told
That all I touched metaphorically
Would surely turn to gold
This gift came with a caveat
That seemed to be quite fair
I mustn’t get too greedy
Or all would turn to despair
And from that day without a doubt
I’ve found this to be true
I’ve won small bets on horseracing
And a game...

Every time you greatly suffer,
And with your life be disappointed.
And you feel that there is no hope,
And all things seem so disjointed.
Every time you feel lost,
And ask yourself: What can I see?
And you feel that there is no future,
To find a purpose for being me.
When you feel the whole world mocks you,
And that it always seems so cruel.
When you feel you have no place in life,

For every ship that sailed away
you forever received two in return
the heavily laden burden of fault
from which you never had to learn.
The sparkling light of luck
shone always on your skin
and the bright spark of hope
built bridges from within.
Perfectly formed a beautiful being
the mirror blushed at your vision
a sight to behold and to admire
a form unn...

Money is the soul to reach a goal
It is the tool to play a role
But if you're miser or a poor
No way to live happy and cool
Luck is the wing across future
but work is the core of the creature
To be strong even no wing
Keep your effort to win the venture
Poor & rich, should also search
Money everywhere, we must fetch
the only lazy .. also crazy
Forever, no goa...

mujhe kya , har cheez me tera ghar lagta hai
wo sama , teri ghali ka wo manzar lagta hai
pawu zameen pa rakh ke samandar lagta hai
teri muhabbat ka asar is qadar lagta hai
Sulagti huwi aagh pa mujhe chalney do rafiq
Har qadam pa maloom uska reh guzar lagta hai
terey ansuvu ki jo na kar sakey qadar
phir dil uska muj...

The dog stole my scrumptious donuts a-waiting,
And on school days, my thinker never worked the long haul
Then fate decided to reveal my bowling prowess
Before it flung me four-score a-gutterball.
Is it my fault I needlessly negotiate with math?
Or school days proved me a sitting duck?
Even if genes came into play,
I blame humanity’s ups and misgivings on luck

I've written a million love songs about you,
But this one is going to hit home.
Countless nights I've spent
Writing unspeakable words.
Hoping they'll reach inside your heart
Knowing my luck, they won't.
Sometimes I wish that my heart wasn't so easy.
Maybe I wouldn't feel this way
But if I didn't have an easy heart
I would be my worst fear;
Another typical boy.
But let's face the undenia...

I love the beauty of the four-leaf clover
I study thier patterns over and over
Some collect them for Irish luck
But for other's like me, we're simply awestruck
We collect them because we know thier rare
They give us hope to not despair
And just like them, with light we'll grow
As the ground is watered here below
So remember this blessing, caught unaware
There might just ...

There once was a man who lived by the sea
Who fished the Irish water
The man had a ship that really was hip
He called it "Lucky Otter"
And every time hed sail he'd catch a thousand krill
And take them back to harbor for a hundred dollar bill
The man had a friend way down at the end by Jessie's magic parlor
She'd go for a trip with the man that was hip
Who owned the "Lucky O...

He goes for his morning walk,
with his ambling, enthusiastic gait;
he knows he’s lucky, and sunshine kisses his hair -
not yet grey, barely greying. He of fortunate fate,
makes his way over the field, calmly,
unharmed, green grass nipping his heels, and late
summer flowers bow to him. The sheep watch curiously,
then defer to the master of the estate.
The children whoo...

Where did you get that hat!?
Folks grind on me each day.
"Keep it off, tis not funny!"
Sorry, but it's staying on this way!
Tis the hat my father never wore
on St. Paddy's day, you'd swore
Tis but me spiked up hair, y'seen
Doused with a lot o'spray on green!
I haven't me a hat, let alone respect;
So I'll bug off with me head erect.
And just as well, I'm on me way
I haven't a shamro...

Your Excellency, a Lady of Separation!
I am cold, and that's a damnation!
The letter in the envelope, do not tear, my dove!
I am not lucky in death, I’ll be lucky in love!
Your Excellency, a Lady of Luck!
For someone you are kind, for another one a chuck
Nine grams in the heart, just wait, do not call!
I am not lucky in death, I'll be a winner once for a...
