With a bit of luck

A duck

Will come into your life

When you are at the peak

of your great powers.

And your achievement towers

like a smoking chimney stack

There'll be a quack

And right there at your feet

A little duck will stand;

She will take you by the hand

And lead you

Like a child with no defence;

She will lead you

Into wisdom, joy and innocence.

That little duck.

We wish you luck.
