about

This is a fairly early song! My goal in writing about it was to write about a guy who was unlucky in love, but who was generally pretty cheerful about it. The bridge was inspired by those Motown songs that quote relevant platitudes about time healing all wounds (or what have you), although those songs tend to be a bit more skeptical about those sayings than this song is.

lyrics

Well I used to love Ramona, thought about her all the time.
Yes I used to love Ramona, thought about her all the time.
One day, she told me what she thought about me.
Guess I'll have better luck next time.

Once I asked Stacy to see me, I said I thought she was divine.
Yes I asked Stacy to see me, said I thought she was divine.
Well, she laughed, and she told me to go straight to Hell.
Guess I'll have better luck next time.

Well, my luck's been pretty bad so far
But not for long, that's not my fate.
'Cause it's always darkest before it's dawn
and good things come to those that wait.
I just have to keep my chin up, that's my most solemn vow.
I could meet the right person any time, and it just might be right now.

I married sweet Fiona, I'd be hers and she'd be mine.
Yes I married sweet Fiona, swore I'd be hers and she'd be mine.
But now it seems that she's somebody else's.
Guess I'll have better luck next time, you bet I will
You know I'll have better luck next time. You know I will.
I bet I'll have better luck next time!
