“One Buck (No Luck)”


When I went to

buy a lottery ticket,

the friendly lady said, “Pick it!”

With no luck,

I lost one buck.

When I lost my dollar,

everyone heard me holler.

They stole my money,

and that’s not funny.

I’m in my sorrow,

’cause they won’t let me borrow.

One more ticket I bought,

for the big jackpot.

No numbers were a match,

but I had one more to scratch.

I almost won the lottery,

and my eyes were watery.

The lottery I never won,

and money I have none.

But I came real near,

to becoming a millionaire.
