Lucky Dog

From The Elvis Costello Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

I sucked in my final breath
Stared into the eyes of death
Laughed right in the face of chance
And said hey son do you want to dance

But I was trembling deep inside
My faithful friend right at my side
As that firefight began
He had the courage of twenty men

The days are never really done
The war's not over until it's won
If you want to count on anyone
Then thank the Lord you're free

Who was that lucky dog
Was it him or me
Who was that lucky dog
Was it him or me

When the enemy is closing in
And you've either got to run or win
You think that this might be the end
You're really going to need a friend

But I don't care for fancy words
Ignoble speeches that I have heard
Or the lies and tricks that they employ
What was that you were saying boy

The days are never really done
The war's not over until it's won
If you need to count on anyone
Then thank the Lord you're free

Who was that lucky dog
Was it him or me
Who was that lucky dog
Was it him or me
