fifty in your flag (Man, you've really got a family tree) With Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Lee (You're lucky to have ancestors like that) Don't you were born with a feather in your hat (You're a very, very wealthy gent) I don't care if you haven't a cent You can still have things your own way On each election day If some poor suckers could choose They'd like to be in your shoes That proves that your good fortune's no myth You're a lucky fellah, Mr. Smith You are a lucky fellah, Mr. Smith (Mr. Smith) To be able to swing like you do And to have that swell Miss Liberty gal Carryin' the
