Lucky
(by Igor Koyfman)

Freedom is difficult to gain
And even then difficult to keep
They think you're going astray
And send the dogs to round you up like sheep
One famous pirate was told
As his trial came to the end
"You wouldn't die like a dog
If you had fought like a man"

Maybe I'm lucky
Or maybe I'm lucky
In another way
As fate has been good enough to me
The biggest treasure
That I could ever find
Is just enough happiness for me

Skeletons in the iron cages
Hanging from the execution docks
Never deter their brethren
A pack doesn't turn into a flock
Judges in powdered wigs
Always declare they're right
But I'm somehow unconvinced
Strike their gavels as they might

Maybe I'm lucky
Or maybe I'm lucky
In another way
As fate has been good enough to me
The biggest treasure
That I could ever find
Is just enough happiness for me

Treasure may lie under the X
But you have to get there somehow
Carefully selecting your path
Trying to account for the unknown
There's no time to lose
If you've got anything to gain
Dreams have nothing to prove
They just come to you to entertain

Maybe I'm lucky
Or maybe I'm lucky
In another way
As fate has been good enough to me
The biggest treasure
That I could ever find
Is just enough happiness for me
