I Should Be So Lucky By Robert George/ Tom Bohn c 2005

Popped the hood of his red Trans Am
With torn overalls and greasy hands
I poured in half a quart of Pennzoil
That guy brings it in every month
Tips me a fifty to tune it up
Fill the tires, check the wires and the coil

I pictured that old used Ford that I just bought
Slammed the hood of his Trans Am and thought

I should be so lucky to live like that
Man, if there's a good life
That's where it's at
He's got it made in the shade
Sometime's I think if I could trade
I'd wish that were me
'Cause I should be
I should be so lucky


He picked his car up right at five
Was takin' some redhead for a drive
Her name was on the tip of his tongue
I thought of the crazy things I did
Before my marriage and my two kids
And I smiled cause I was wild when I was young

He said there's a party tonight, we're gonna raise some hell
I just took his fifty and I said to myself

I should be so lucky to live like that
Man, if there's a good life that's where it's at
He's got it made in the shade
Sometimes I think if I could trade
I'd wish that were me
'Cause I should be
I should be so lucky


He said come on, get in, go with us
I said sorry not tonight
Suppers on the stove and it's waitin'
And I'm headin' home to my wife
Then with a hint of regret
He looked up and said


I should be so lucky to live like that
Man, if there's a good life that's where it's at
You've got it made in the shade
Sometime's I think if I could trade
I'd wish that were me
'Cause I should
I should be so lucky
