Lyrics JUST MY LUCK,
FOUND ME A LOVER,
NOW I DISCOVER
I WAS UNWISE.
MY TRUE LOVE
FOOLED ME COMPLETELY,
SPOKE TO ME SWEETLY,
NOTHING BUT LIES.

SO I RAVE
AND I RANT
AND I RUN
FROM HIS KISS,
BUT IT SEEMS
THAT I CAN'T
GET HIM OUT OF MY SYSTEM.

LIGHTNING STRUCK,
OH, WHAT A FEELING,
THAT'S WHEN THE CEILING
FELL FROM ABOVE,
WHY IS IT
JUST MY LUCK
THAT I'M STILL IN LOVE.

I COULD RUN TO HIS ARMS
BUT IT WOULDN'T LAST.
TO GIVE IN TO HIS CHARMS
WOULD BE COURTING DISASTER.

LIGHTNING STRUCK,
OH, WHAT A FEELING,
THAT'S WHEN THE CEILING
FELL FROM ABOVE,
WHY IS IT
JUST MY LUCK
THAT I'M STILL IN LOVE.

Lyrics I'VE GOT TO BE GOOD
OR MAMA WILL SCOLD ME...
YES! YES! YES!
I ASKED HER
AND THIS IS WHAT SHE TOLD ME...
YES! YES! YES!

MOTHER,
MAY I GO OUT DANCING?
YES,
MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
MOTHER,
MAY I TRY ROMANCING?
YES,
MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
WHAT IF THERE'S A MOON,
MAMA DARLING,
AND IT'S SHINING ON THE WATER...
MOTHER,
MUST I KEEP ON DANCING?
YES,
MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
WHAT IF HE'LL PROPOSE,
MAMA DARLING,
WHEN THE NIGHT IS GROWING SHORTER...
MOTHER,
WHAT SHOULD BE MY ANSWER?
YES,
MY DARLING DAUGHTER.

OH, MAMA,
OH, MAMA,
OH, MAMA,
OH, MAMA...
WHAT IF HE SHOULD INSIST
ON ONE EMBRACE,
MAMA,
HOW CAN I KEEP HIM IN HIS PLACE
IF HIS MANNER
BECOMES A SHADE IMPROPER?
TELL HIM
THAT YOUR HEART BELONGS TO POPPA!

MOTHER, WILL IT BE EXCITING?
YES, MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
MOTHER, DO I LOOK INVITING?
YES, MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
IF HE HOLDS ME TIGHT,
MAMA DARLING,
AND MY KNEES
JUST TURN TO WATER...
MOTHER,
MUST I KEEP ON DANCING?
YES,
MY DARLING DAUGHTER.
WHAT IF HE PERSISTS,
MAMA DARLING,
DOING THINGS
HE HADN'T OUGHTTA...
MOTHER,
WHAT SHOULD BE MY ANSWER?
YES...
AND NO...
MY DAUGHTER!
