LUCKY SEVEN SAMPSON

Music & Lyrics: Bob Dorough
Sung by: Bob Dorough

Now you can call me Lucky 'cause Lucky's my name,
Singin' and dancin', that's my game.
I never did a whole day's work in my life,
Still everything seems to turn out right.
Like a grasshopper on a summer's day,
I guess I love to play, and pass the time away.
'Cause I was born 'neath a lucky star!

They said I'd go far...

Makin' people happy, that's my favorite game,
Lucky Seven is my natural name.
Slippin' and slidin' my whole life through
Still I get everything done that I got to do.
'Cause I was born 'neath a lucky star!

School is where you are? Aww, that's not hard, lemme show ya
something.

You multiply seven time one,
I got seven days to get that problem done.
Multiply seven time two,
Take 14 laughs when you're feelin' blue.
Multiply seven time three,
A 21-day vacation, you can play with me.
Multiply seven time four,
You got 28 days, that's-a one month more,
To pay the mortgage on your store, don't worry!

Somethin'll turn up, yeah!

Multiply seven time five,
I don't know how you did it, but man alive, that's 35.
Multiply seven time six,
Grab a stick and make-a 42 clickety-clicks.
Multiply seven time seven,
Take 49 steps right up to seventh heaven.
Multiply seven time eight,
They got 56 flavors and I just can't wait...
Multiply seven time nine,
63 musicians, all friends of mine.
Multiply seven time ten,
And that brings you right back to 70 again.

You know, I think that's important, there's a trick there
somewhere...

Multiply seven time eleven,
Even a rabbit knows that 70 plus 7.
Multiply seven time twelve,
You got 84, and isn't that swell.
I'm gonna try seven times 13 just for fun:
70 plus 21.
Seven times 14 must be great,
Well, exactly that's-a 70 plus 28.
Seven times 15, man alive,
That's 70 plus 35, a hundred and five!

Man, this stuff is simple, no jive, you got it! Now I gotta fly.
'Scuse me folks, I'm sayin' goodbye,
I sure do thank you for the huckleberry pie.
Take it home, boys!

Remember Lucky Seven Samson, that's my natural born name,
If you should ask me again, I'll have to tell you the same.
You'll wake up tomorrow, you'll be glad that I came,
'Cause you'll be singin one of the songs that I sang.

So keep a happy outlook and be good to your friend,
And maybe I'll pass this way again!

Maybe... Bye!
