The Luckiest Man in the World Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
As soon as I have saved a little nest egg
I hope to ask you, dear, will you be mine?
The lovers you have had say, you're the best egg
They repeat, you're completely divine
Verse 2
I've heard of Pompadour and Cleopatra
But you are better than the two combined
How can it be you fancy me, is it that love is blind?
Verse 3
I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you, I'm told by Fritz and Peter
Your lips would not be sweeter
Verse 4
Oh, you must be a marvelous thing to delight
The many men you do, the secrets they can find
Have made me swell with pride
Verse 5
We shall move to larger quarters
To make your boyfriends feel at home
Your iceman and your cops and porters
Would fill the hippodrome
Verse 6
Oh, I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you
I'm very lucky to have a little girl like you
Verse 7
I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you
I'm proud because I can't see
Yet struck the nations fancy
Verse 8
Oh, you must have a marvelous gift to receive
The many gifts you do with same old clothes
And things each time the doorbell rings
Verse 9
I have heard from Jack, the plumber
A gentleman you may recall
When you were through with him last summer
He couldn't plumb at all
Verse 10
Oh, I'm about the luckiest man in the world
To have a girl like you, a little girl like you
Verse 11
