The lord above gave man an arm of iron
So he could do his job and never shirk
The lord above gave man an arm of iron
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
Someone else will do the blinkin' work
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck you'll never work)

The lord above made liquor for temptation
To see if man could turn away from sin
The lord above made liquor for temptation
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
When temptation comes you'll give right in
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck you'll give right in)

Oh you can walk the straight and narrow
But with a little bit of luck you'll run amok

The gentle sex was made for man t'marry
To share his nest and see his food is cooked
The gentle sex was made for man t'marry
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
You can have it all and not get hooked
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck you won't get hooked)
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)

The lord above made man to help his neighbor
No matter where on land or sea or foam
The lord above made man to help his neighbor
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
When he comes around you won't be home!!
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck you won't be home)

They're always throwing goodness at you
But, with a little bit of luck a man can duck

Oh it's a crime for man to go philanderin'
And fill his wife's poor heart with grief and doubt
Oh it's a crime for man to go philanderin'
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
You can see the bloodhound don't find out
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck she won't find out)
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)

A man was made to help support his children
Which is the right and proper thing to do
A man was made to help support his children
But, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck
They'll go out and start supporting you
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck they'll work for you)

(he doesn't have a tuppence in his pocket)
(the poorest bloke you'll ever hope to meet)
(he doesn't have a tuppence in his pocket)
(but, with a little bit of luck, with a little bit of luck)
(he'll be movin' up to easy street)
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of luck I'm movin' up)
(with a little bit, with a little bit)
(with a little bit of bloomin' luck)
