Brian (Beachnut) has suggested this challenge. The theme is Getting Lucky. He didn't specify if it should be the hook, so the theme should at least be about getting lucky in some way. I assume you can use any variant of "get."

Have fun.

Hi Jean and Brian,
This would be my 2nd crack at hip hop/ pop playing around at the 50/90 challenge.

Believe me, I know nothing about if there is a certain structure or what?? I just write it the way I hear it. It'll probably come across like everything I wrote 4 months ago when I discovered writing sites and wanted to write lyrics. This might suck the big one! I guess I'll learn from experience so here it is.

Any way, my second shot at pop. The first I sent across the boards. ...........Geneva

I Got Luckier Than Most


Lyrics:
(c) 2009 Geneva Keith

Verse 1
Life is chance and hopes and dreams,
And all that's in between,
I went out looking for a four leaf clover,
I was to ni'eve to know life's meaning..

Verse 2
I've struggled hard all my life,
To find those four pedals,
Somewhere along the line was you,
I wanted to so I thought I'd settle..

Pre chorus
I got luck-i-er than most.. because I found.
That special thing that most do not find...

Chorus
Leaf 1..A love I've never known,
Leaf 2.. You changed my life when I met you...
Leaf 3..You make me happy baby, you are the one,
I didn't need a four leaf dream, though it seamed that way at the time....

Leaf 1..A love that will surpass
Leaf 2.. All that life throws at us,
Leaf 3.. I am happy baby,since we fell in love.
Love life and happiness, you were just three leaves but you were missing all my life....

Verse 3
Love and life and happiness,
What I found in you,
The three leaves that I love are more,
Than the four that could never ring true..

Pre chorus
I got luck-i-er than most.. because I found.
That special thing that most don't find...

Chorus
Leaf 1..A love I've never known,
Leaf 2.. You changed my life when I met you...
Leaf 3..You make me happy baby, you are the one,
I didn't need a four leaf dream, though it seamed that way at the time....

Leaf 1..A love that will surpass
Leaf 2.. All that life throws at us,
Leaf 3.. I am happy baby,since we fell in love.
Love life and happiness, you were just three leaves but you were missing all my life....

Tag
but I got luckier than most....

I'll Get Lucky
© words and music by C. Stewart ( July 13, 2009 )

When I was a kid
We were very poor
Couldn't afford a
Lock on the door

The roof overhead
Would always leak
Even the holes in the
Floor would squeak

Per Chorus..

One day maybe the rain will stop
Hopefully before I drop and die

CHORUS...

One day, I'll get lucky
Drive a Caddilac
One day I'll get lucky
The blues won't be back

Inst. Break............

Raced against the clock
Never found the gold
Every days a struggle
Every night is cold

Per Chorus..

Repeat CHORUS...

I'm the saddest man
In my neighborhood
Still can't find a job
Things ain't lookin' good

Pre Chorus...

Chorus....

To Geneva:

Even though I suggested this topic, I may not have any in my repetoire that would qualify, so I'll probably leave this one up to the rest of you all.

I wanted to comment about your venture into pop. Sometimes, at least structually, there is not much difference between mainstream pop and country songs. Some in fact cross both generes(many of Kenny Rogers' hits, for example, and many more too numberous to mention)

But, it is much different when you get into hip-hop, disco, etc. And also many folk songs, some of which became hits, tell a continuous story and don't necessarily follow a verse, verse, chorus, verse format.

Happy to Get Lucky © 2009 joice marie

He was Black
Had a coat tail shine
Better than any Cat
'Cause he was mine

I was happy
to get Lucky

He was fast
Had a real fine mind
Never came in last
Racing through time

I was happy
to get Lucky

shot out of the shoot like a flash
first prize equaled lots of cash

Boy was I happy
to get Lucky

He was Black
and real fast
Better than any Cat
Never Ever last

Man I'm glad
I got Lucky.

he's such a great puppy
he's such a great puppy


perfection is unattainable, excellence is totally within reach

Okay, I have a few minutes to kill and love to do it on these challenges. So, a song about "getting lucky," huh? Hmmmmm. There's the obvious love and money directions. Hmmmmm. Let's see what comes out...


I Got Lucky


I'm feelin' good even though I'm all alone.
No more wonderin' 'bout why you kept goin' out.
I always knew you cheated.
But, now it's over and I don't feel defeated 'cause...

(Chorus)
I got lucky when you broke my heart.
Thanks to you, I've got a brand new start, and
I'd rather have no one than to fall apart.
I got real lucky when you finally broke my heart.

(V2)
I heard her kids have been calling you Dad
and that she never knew your wife was missing you.
I hope you treat her better
'cause if you don't, I'll be writing her a letter, sayin'...

(Chorus)
I got lucky when you broke my heart.
Thanks to you, I've got a brand new start, and
I'd rather have no one than to fall apart.
I got real lucky when you finally broke my heart.

(Bridge)
You said it yourself when you saw me with my new man.
If you if weren't for you, I'd have never been free
to find such ecstasy....'cause...

(Chorus a capella)
(Modulate final chorus)


"Okay...that was fun....Heidi"
I edited this by making the rhyme scheme clearer with bold lettering since I hear the music and rhythm in my head, and it doesn't translate as well on papaer...

OK, I'm a little behind on these challenges so I thought I'd try to catch up. I started this one a while back but just finished. It's short, but sounds good in my head. Nothing special though, sorry. The start was just a title (per the challenge) and the first two lines. LOL The rest is fresh, last 5 minutes. No tweaks, this is it. The bridge sucks, but it needed one since it's a shorty.

Male, country rock sound, killer guitar (playing in my head) vocals sounds like Montgomery Gentry style. (again, that;s in my head)


Getting Lucky
© 2009 Caroline Holder

You said I was a loser
Told your friends I was nothing but a boozer
You wouldn’t be caught dead with the likes of me
You don’t want no broke ass man
That don’t fit into your master plan
I needed to wake up and smell reality
But baby girl, someday you’ll see me
Holding that winning ticket in the lottery
And I’ll be

Chorus
Getting Lucky
Pullin out in a brand new truck
Passin you up, givin another girl a ride
You’re gonna see how it sucks
While I spend those easy come by bucks
On her, whoever she may be
You’ll be left with nothing but your reality
But me, I’ll be Getting Lucky

(((And there’ll be some kick butt guitar right about here)))

Bridge
You should’ve read the fine print before you turned down this deal
I got five out of six and plans on which way to turn my wheels

Chorus-repeat

Ok, so it's not so good. LOL! I'll have to look at the few lines worth saving and maybe go somewhere else with it. HA! Guess I wasn't Getting Lucky...=(

I Got Lucky, Baby
©Craig Wolff, 2009.

Asked a popular girl to prom my senior year
She chuckled out words I didn't want to hear
No way her majesty would be seen with me
Then she gave the boy she went with an std

I got lucky baby
Really dodged an axe
I got lucky baby
Can't deny the facts
I got lucky baby
I got some good news
When I got lucky baby
I was happy to lose

That same year I was gonna be a football star
I had big plans for the backseat of my car
I got cut and bid farewell to football fame
The team was in the E.R. after every game

I got lucky baby
Really dodged an axe
I got lucky baby
Can't deny the facts
I got lucky baby
I got some good news
When I got lucky baby
I was happy to lose

Now I'm all grown up with a dead end job
Don't have to worry 'bout gettin' robbed
My lowlife neighbors are never around
They're occupied on the nice side of town

I got lucky baby
Really dodged an axe
I got lucky baby
Can't deny the facts
I got lucky baby
I got some good news
When i got lucky baby
I was happy to lose

Just Plain Quotes
"The standard by which I now measure the things in my life is the following: If I was on my death bed, or if I knew I had a short time to live, would this issue be important? If the answer is no.. I don't sweat it at all. If the answer is Yes, you better believe it goes to the front of the order of today's business!" -Brian Austin Whitney
