But Then A Week Ago Last Thursday



My parents married here in Reno
Then I was born, and it seemed downhill from there
We never had our share of luck, and it wasn't fair
Ooooo
But then, a week ago last Thursday
I drove for hours and I never hit one red light
I ate a day-old tuna sandwich and felt alright
Luck was mine

Now I'm one of the lucky
Fortune has a special smile for me
That's the day that my life changed
Ohhhh

As a kid I was unhappy
For Sunday dinner we had beets and collard greens
I had to share a room until I was in my teens
Ooooo
But then, a week ago last Thursday
I took a shower and the water came out hot
When I was late for work I found a parking spot
Right in front

Now I'm one of the lucky
Fortune has a special smile for me
That's the day that my life changed
Ohhhh

I'd say I've known my share of women
They all were friends, it was just a platonic thing
I don't need friends, what I need is a fling
Ooooo
But then, a week ago last Thursday
I got a call from the girl who lives next door
And now I have those golden memories of waves crashing on the shore
Ahhhh!

Now I'm one of the lucky
Fortune has a special smile for me
That's the day that my life changed
Ohhhh
Ohhhh
Ohhhh
