'Suddenly Lucky'

We've had a break,
A very good break.
Let's just take
This very good break
Enjoy it while we may
And be glad it came our way...

Suddenly lucky,
Suddenly our arms are lucky;
Suddenly lucky,
Suddenly our lips have kissed,
Suddenly dreamy,
Suddenly our eyes are dreamy
Seeing the world
In rosy mist.
Suddenly lucky,
Suddenly to be together,
Suddenly owning
Happiness no gold can buy.
Suddenly grateful,
Little do we wonder whether
Some people may be wealthier than we
We are luckier to be
You and I.
