Some Guys Have All The Luck
The Persuaders Lyrics


Alone in a crowd on a bus after work
I'm daydreaming
The guy next to me has his girl on his arm
My arms are empty
How does it feel when the girl that you love
Says "Yes, she loves you"
It seems unfair when there's love everywhere
And yet there's none for you

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their life
My life is only filled with rain

Someone to take on a walk by the lake
Dear Lord, let her be
Someone who's shy
Someone who liable to cry at sad movies
Ooh, I do believe I would die just to look in her eyes
And find them filled with me
But you're just a dream and as real as it seems
I'm not that lucky

Some guys have all the luck
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their life
My life is only filled with rain

It's just a losing game
The things have got to change
Some girl will give my love a try
With my luck, she'd have her overnight, oh well

Some guys have all the luck
(Alone in a crowd on a bus after work I'm daydreaming)
Some guys have all the pain
Some guys have a little sunshine in their life
(The guy next to me has his girl on his arm
My arms are empty)
My life is only filled with rain

Hey this is way better than the Rod Stewart version. I love this!

Wow. I'm really shocked that A.) Rod's was a cover (live and learn). B.) This is actually way better.

@hailem hailem Yes. Maxi Priest did a great cover

CLASSIC song in "1973", we had the most amazing music back then. I have wonderful memories from that time. Glad I saved all my music from the 70s and 80s...THE BEST MUSIC!!

This song is a perfect example of what 'ART' is. Many people will think that this version is terrible, many think it's great. What I find hard to accept is people who think that Rod Stewart's version is bad, but again, that's ART. Then came Robert Palmer who borrowed absolutely nothing beyond the title, and maybe one line, then completely reinvented this tune into something completely different, and something that only he could possibly have imagined doing with it. The one thing I DO LOVE about this version, is hearing almost all of the lyrics, that I never got from hundreds of listens to Rod's version
