I WAS LUCKY
(Jack Stern (m) Jack Meskill (l) 1935)
as recorded by
Benny Goodman & his Orchestra
(vocal - Helen Ward)
February 19th 1935 New York
I was lucky to be born at the same time as you,
I was lucky to be born 'neath the same skies of blue.
To think we're sharing the same moon above,
Maybe some day we may share the same love!
I was lucky that you didn't meet somebody else,
i was lucky for there might have been somebody else.
Oh what a lucky day,
The day I hear you say
You were lucky too!
