Lucky To Be Us

I used to think it might be fun to be anyone else but me.
I thought that it would be a pleasant surprise to wake up as a couple of other guys.
But now that I’ve found you, I’ve changed my point of view,
And now I wouldn’t give a dime to be anyone else but me!

What a day, fortune smiled and came my way,
Bringing love I never thought I’d see!
I’m so lucky to be me!

What a night, suddenly you came in sight,
Looking just the way I’d hoped you’d be!
I’m so lucky to be me!

I am simply thunderstruck at the change in my luck:
Knew at once I wanted you, never dreamed you’d want me, too.

I’m so proud you chose me from all the crowd,
There’s no other guy I’d rather be.
I could laugh out loud, I’m so lucky to be me!

-Leonard Bernstein, “On The Town”
