The song was parodied in the Simpsons episode "Mayored to the Mob" as "Luke be a Jedi", which proves, yet again, that EVERYTHING comes back to Star Wars...
Is this a serious question? I hate to be serious when things are really rhetorical, etc. Then I just feel so doggone gullible, you know. And then I'll hear about it from s.g. for years. You know that.But I'm a risk taker.So here goes Her Seriousness:Luck be a Lady... I think it might be referring to the most desired form Luck could take. In this case, a Lady would be the best form of Luck. Vs. winning the raffle or a free trip to Disneyland.I think. [/serious answer]
I love the expression on Effie's face!
Yes, that was a serious question and one that had me stymied.
I think it's referring to the proper etiquette of a "lady". So luck should act like a lady and stay with the guy who brought her. IOW the "Guy" wants his luck to stick around like any proper "Doll" would.Y'know, since you asked.
I think Mary got it. It's luck be a lady with the implied and not a whore hanging on at the end.
I love that musical! (OK, I'll admit it, I was a Hot Box girl when we did the the play in high school...my best friend was one of the religious "sisters" -- we never failed to find it humorous!)Great expression on Effie's face.I like the answers to the question, and have nothing to add.
I think folks are correct when they say it's all in how luck should behave... as per the lyrics:They call you lady luckBut there is room for doubtAt times you have a very un-lady-like wayOf running outYour on this date with meThe pickins have been lushAnd yet before the evening is overYou might give me the brushYou might forget your mannersYou might refuse to stayAnd so the best that I can do is prayLuck be a lady tonightLuck be a lady tonightLuck if youve been a lady to begin withLuck be a lady tonightLuck let a gentleman seeJust how nice a dame you can beI know the way youve treated other guys youve been withLuck be a lady with meA lady never leaves her escortIt isnt fair, it isnt niceA lady doesnt wander all over the roomAnd blow on some other guys diceLets keep this party politeNever get out of my sightStick with me baby, Im the guy that you came in withLuck be a lady tonightA lady never flirts with strangersShed have a heart, shed be niceA lady doesnt wander all over the roomAnd blow on some other guys diceLets keep this party politeNever get out of my sightStick with me baby, Im the guy that you came in withLuck be a lady tonight
