  1. 10 Lucky Day

From The Recordings Html

What better way to cheer up a pal that to tell them their ship has just come in – and what better way to say it than with a loping, Beatlesque shuffle which is an obvious nod to three of their best-known? ‘It’s Getting Better’, ‘Help From My Friends’, and ‘Penny Lane’ are all represented here, replete with chunky guitars, orchestra bells, piccolo trumpet, and a sky’s-the-limit lyric. I had hoped some diaper company would pick this up as a jingle for psychedelic, paisley-spangled diapers for Baby Boomers (who will presumably soon need them) but nobody picked up on the idea, so it’s all yours.

Lyrics

Lucky Day

It’s a brand-new morning, rise & shine
Turn on your daylights, it’s wake-up time
Are you feeling alive, are ya ready to win?
Well guess what baby, your ship has just come in…

This is your Lucky Day
get up look around you, the fortunes have found you
It’s your Lucky Day
(Your fun-in-the-sun day)
And I’m lucky too, because I get to spend it with you

There’s a miracle waiting and it’s heading your way
You can jump up and catch it or you can just walk away
Might as well take your place, then you can take me too
We’ll go riding shotgun-style into the wild across a sky of blue

This is your Lucky Day
Right in front of your nose is a big bed of roses
It’s your Lucky Day
(Your fun-in-the-sun day)
And I’m lucky too because I get to spend it with you

It’s gonna be a Lucky Day
Wake up look around you, good fortune has found you
It’s your Lucky Day
(Your fun-in-the-sun day)
And I got lucky ‘cause I get to spend it with you…
