​O Lucky Man!

This song is by The Animals and appears on the live album Greatest Hits Live (Rip It to Shreds) (1984).

If you have a friend on whom you think you can rely -
You are a lucky man!
If you've found the reason to live on and not to die -
You are a lucky man!
Preachers and poets and scholars don't know it,
Temples and statues and steeples won't show it,
If you've got the secret just try not to blow it -
Stay a lucky man!

If you've found the meaning of the truth in this old world-
You are a lucky man!
If knowledge hangs around your neck like pearls instead of chains -
You are a lucky man!
Takers and fakers and talkers won't tell you.
Teachers and preachers will just buy and sell you.
When no one can tempt you with heaven or hell-
You'll be a lucky man!
