LUCKY JIM
 
div
 

Jim and I as childen played together
Best of chums for many years were we
I, alas, had no luck - was a Jonah
Jim, my chum, was lucky as could be.

Chorus: Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him
Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him!

Years passed by, still Jim and I were comrades
He and I both loved the same sweet maid
She loved Jim and married him one eveniong
Jim was lucky, I, unlucky stayed.

Chorus: Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him
Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him!

Years rolled on and death took Jim away, boys
Left his widow and she married me
Now we're married, oft I think of Jim, boys
Sleeping in the churchyard by the sea.

Chorus: Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him
Ah! Lucky Jim, how I envy him.
