Ruth Brown Backing Tracks : Lucky Lips
When I was just a baby, I didn’t have many toys,
But my mama used to say, “Son, you got more than other boys.
Now, you may not be good-looking, and you may not be too rich,
But you’ll never ever be alone, ‘cos you’ve got lucky lips.”
Lucky lips are always kissing, lucky lips are never blue,
Lucky lips will always find a pair of lips so true.
Don’t need a four-leave clover, rabbit’s foot or good luck charm,
With lucky lips you’ll always have a baby in your arm.
