A relyric of the song "Lovely Day" by Bill Withers and Skip Scarborough, which I do not own.

VERSE 1

 

As I’m driving in a pensive mood,

 

Money troubles cloud my mind.

 

I’m choosing between rent and food,

 

More money I must find.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store,

 

The beer girl calls out to me:

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free,

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

 

A loosing lottery ticket from Kentucky's Mega Millions with Megaplier from the Kentucky Lottery.

VERSE 2

 

And I see a dollar lying there,

 

Green, on the sidewalk ahead.

 

I hesitate to pick it up,

 

Doesn’t buy a load of bread.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store,

 

The beer girl calls out to me:

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free,

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

 

VERSE 3

 

When the jackpots small I’m holding out.

 

Just a couple bucks I’ll play.

 

But when it’s past a hundred mill

 

Then I’m in all the way.

 

A quick pick ticket from the Hoosier Lotto Plus drawing

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way"

 

 

VERSE 4

 

When we play in teams you know we sense,

 

More camaraderie at work.

 

But if numbers match this job’s past tense.

 

Austin’s where we’ll go berserk.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way.”

 

A lottery ticket for Kentucky's Powerball Power Play, which keeps our best and most deserving students in the Bluegrass State.

 

VERSE 5

 

Heading south bound on I-35.

 

Soon a Vanderbilt I’ll be.

 

I signed up for that lump sum deal,

 

Cause waiting’s not for me.

 

 

CHORUS

 

At the corner store

 

The beer girl calls out to me

 

“What’s you waiting for?

 

One buck might just set you free

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

The lotto way……” [held out]

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

Lottery, lottery, lottery.

 

Lottery.

 

The End
