Just my luck, found me a lover Now I discover I was unwise My true love fooled me completely Spoke to me sweetly, nothin' but lies So I rave and I rant, and I run from his kiss But it seems that I can't get him out of my system Lightning struck, oh, what a feeling That's when the ceiling fell from above Why is it just my luck that I'm still in love Just my luck, found me a lover Now I discover I was unwise My true love fooled me completely Spoke to me sweetly, nothin' but lies I could run to his arms, but it just wouldn't last To give in to his charms would be courting disaster Lightning struck, ooh, what a feeling That's when the ceiling fell from above Why is it just my luck to be in love

about

"It has been my good luck to play music with Bob Barnard since meeting him many years ago. The sound of the combo is intimate and conversational. Like four blokes sitting around playing cards!
Bob and I place our bets and show our hands. Nigel Date on acoustic rhythm guitar deals a deck of grooves and Jonathan Zwartz adds his superb double bass playing to the conversation, trumping everything when he solos.
All the music was recorded in one afternoon with no edits or overdubs. Let the cards fall where they may." Ian Date October 2016
