  • With a little luck we can help it out
    We can make this whole damn thing work out
    With a little love we can lay it down
    Can't you feel the town exploding

    There is no end to what we can do together
    There is no end
    The willow turns his back on inclement weather
    And if he can do it we can do it

    Just me and you
    And a little luck we can clear it up
    We can bring it in for a landing
    With a little luck we can turn it on
    There can be no misunderstanding

    There is no end to what we can do together
    There is no end
    The willow turns his back on inclement weather
    And if he can do it

    Just me and you
    With a little push we could set it off
    We can send it rocketing skywards
    With a little love we could shake it up
    Don't you feel the comet exploding

    With a little luck, with a little luck
    With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck

    With a little love, we can lay it down
    Can't you feel the town exploding
    With a little push, we could set it off
    We could send it rocketing skywards

    With a little love, we could shake it up
    Don't you feel the comet exploding forwards Writer/s: PAUL MCCARTNEY

  • Asa from Lynchburg, VaIt was the beginning pf the 80's, with the promise of great things to come. =)
  • Steve from Torrance, CaThis is one of those songs that absolutely epitomizes the 1970s: warm, dreamy, airy, effervescent, ethereal... The musical performances (especially on the unedited longer version with the false ending) have a dispassionate austerity about them that has almost never been recaptured by anyone, with the sole exception of (perhaps) the Blue Nile!
  • Brett from Piketon, OhAlways makes me think of my dad..........He played this song all the time and it reminds me of all the good times during my childhood! Great song!
  • Chris from San Francisco, CaFabulous song, so optimistic and happy, Paul at its best again.
  • John from Grand Island, NyVery underrated Paul song!
  • Rick from London, OnPretty good tune! A little indulgent on the synth and reverb but that was the 70's for you!
