THE LOTTERY
I was always the one in the corner while everyone else was dancing
Walking home With tears in my eyes wondering what was wrong with me.
Momma said there was a girl out there and she’d be lucky to have me.
Lighting struck
Momma was right
Tears in here eyes one my wedding night I turned to her and said
Momma look at me
I won the lottery
The girl I wanted all my life
Just told God she’d be my wife
And now we’ll have to see
If she puts up with me
All my numbers came up right
In the lottery

One boy one little girl trying to find their own way
He’s like his mom
She’s like me
Broken hearts cries til she’s empty
She says daddy
I’m giving up
I’m destined to be lonely
I set her down kissed her tears
And told her about my childhood fears
And grace
And having faith
Said look at mom and me
We won the lottery
When we struggle to make our payments
She holds my hand it all makes sense
And more importantly she puts up with me
All your numbers
Will come up right
In the lottery
Eventually
If you just believe

Time sure flies in this American life
Babies grow up and walk that aisle
Say daddy look at me
I won the lottery
Like you love momma he loves me
He holds my hand and I go crazy
More importantly he puts up with me
All my numbers came up right
Lord look at me
I won the lottery
One mans perfect little life
