The Luckiest Man In The World (Album Version)

Billy Eckstine

As soon as I have saved a little nest egg
I hope to ask you, dear, will you be mine?
The lovers you have had say, you're the best egg
They repeat, you're completely divine

I've heard of Pompadour and Cleopatra
But you are better than the two combined
How can it be you fancy me, is it that love is blind?

I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you, I'm told by Fritz and Peter
Your lips would not be sweeter

Oh, you must be a marvelous thing to delight
The many men you do, the secrets they can find
Have made me swell with pride

We shall move to larger quarters
To make your boyfriends feel at home
Your iceman and your cops and porters
Would fill the hippodrome

Oh, I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you
I'm very lucky to have a little girl like you

I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you
I'm proud because I can't see
Yet struck the nations fancy

Oh, you must have a marvelous gift to receive
The many gifts you do with same old clothes
And things each time the doorbell rings

I have heard from Jack, the plumber
A gentleman you may recall
When you were through with him last summer
He couldn't plumb at all

Oh, I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you, a little girl like you
