Lucky Girl

by Joni Mitchell

I'm a lucky girl
I found my friend
I've been all around the world
Mission Impossible
Chasing the rainbow's end
Wise guys
Shy guys
And sly lover boys
With big bad bedroom eyes
I never loved a man I trusted
As far as I could pitch my shoe
'Til I loved you

You're my lucky star
You're my magician
You make the night prowling disappear
Vanished from the star war bars
Empty repetition
I get my heart full here
Playboys
Stray boys
And "Say, hey, hey" boys'll
treat you like a toy
I never loved a man I trusted
as far as I could pitch my shoe
til I loved you

Woman beaters
and Huck Finn shuckster
hopping parking meters
I never loved a man
I trusted
as far as I could pitch my shoe
'til I loved you

I'm a lucky girl
I found my friend
I been all around the world
Mission Impossible
Chasing the rainbow's end
Wise guys
Booby prize guys
and sly lover boys
with big bad bedroom eyes
I never loved a man I trusted
As far as I could throw my shoe
'til I loved you
