Album: Oops... I Did It Again (2000)
Charted: 5 23


  • This song describes an aptly-named character Lucky. Lucky is a very lucky person who has become very famous and has gotten everything that she has ever wanted in her entire life. However, Lucky is still sad inside but does not know why, as described by the lyrics, "She's so lucky, she's a star, but she cry, cry, cry from her lonely hear thinking, 'If there's nothing missing in my life then, why do these tears come at night?'" Considering Spear's later mishaps, this song can in some ways be considered a cry for help. >>
