The Lyrics

So many rabbits’ feet in pockets of believers
So many horoscopes are saying they’re the key
We place our bets and then we kiss the dice
The things we do for luck
The things we do for luck

Association is the answer to the problem
An object soothes us, and it pacifies and calms
The salt is tossed to keep the demons out
The things we do for luck
The things we do for luck

Like comets in the sky all aglow
When they fall you will know
That your wish, it will be granted with its flying
And you’re thinking that the answer’s in the sky

Your mind is really made up
That the sky it might redeem stuff

I need a horseshoe
I need a saint
I need a something
To count on

Like walking to the well and you throw
All your change, it will go
And you’re wishing for a prize that you’ve been eyeing
And you hear a plop, then look for a surprise

The prize it might be good luck
For the change you had to cough up

I need a rainbow
Or dragonfly
I need a something
To hang on

A lucky guide is not a sign of desperation
It’s just a simple thing like wedding rings and hearts
Whatever helps to bring you sunny skies
The things you do for luck
The things you do for luck
The things you do for luck
The things you do for luck

Thanks for the comment, Jonathan. Sharp's story is both sad and uplifting simultaneously. He made a lot of people happy over his short lifetime.

Nice, but wish you hadn't given prominent position to the misdirected rabbit's foot charm (very bad luck implied for rabbits). I do like your blogsite. GioLio

Much appreciated, GioLio. The SPCA also thanks you, too. And thanks for stopping by the blog. It's not an overly noticed place, but I call it home.
