  • Yes, I'm ready
    So come on, Luckie
    Well, there's an avenue
    Of devil who
    Believe in stone

    You can meet
    The captain
    At the dead-end zone
    What devil doesn't know
    Is that devil can't stay
    Doesn't know he's seen his day

    Oh, Luckie's takin' over
    And what luckie says
    Dig them potatoes
    If you never dug your girl before
    Poor little devil
    He's a backseat man to Luckie
    Forever more

  • Mavis from Upper Great LakesLaura Nyro’s songs always conjure up darkness and sunlight for me. I believe she thought in terms of visuals and applied what she saw to her lyrics. A monumental talent, never truly appreciated.
