I WAS CHRISTENED WITH A HORSESHOE-1946
From film, not released on record
Why do lots of people grumble and wish they had a million
Dream all day of castles in the air.
Now you will never hear me grumble, I've never craved a million
The little I've got is a great big lot, I haven't a care
I was christened with a horseshoe, there's a rainbow everywhere I go
Though I haven't got a lot to show, Lady Luck's a friend of mine
I was christened with a horseshoe and I'm looking on the sunny side.
Cause the sunny is the funny side, everything is going fine
Now I'm walking down on easy street,
'Cause I've found there's someone very sweet
There's a flat to let on Easy Street
And I've got a feeling she's gonna be there with me
I was christened with a horseshoe, I can laugh at any cloudy sky
Cause I only see the clouds roll by, Lady luck's a friend of mine.
I was christened with a horseshoe, and I've even got the lump to show
And I take it everywhere I go - all the world's a friend of mine.
I was christened with a horseshoe, to the jockeys I'm the perfect host.
Every horse I back is past the post, Lady Luck's a friend of mine.
I'd a lovely bit of luck today, and a lot of money came my way,
So I'm gonna paint the whole town gay, and a certain little she's gonna be there with me.
I was christened with a horseshoe, can you wonder why I don't go wrong
Why my life is such a happy song, Lady Luck's a friend of mine.
