Lyrics

Well, now ain't this an elegant neighborhood
All the residents dressed so fine
One day off the boat am I with a
Job that's nearly mine
'Tis a job with an elegant
Millionaire and his elegant family
Today I move from immigrant to high society
Now you may call that luck and you may call it fortune
But me, myself, I call it

Fortuosity, that's me byword
Fortuosity, me twinkle in the eye word
Sometimes castles fall to the ground
But that's where four leaf clovers are found
Fortuosity, lucky chances
Fortuitious little happy happenstances

(instrumental)

I don't worry 'cause everywhere I see
That every bit of life is lit by fortuosity

(instrumental)

Fortuosity, that's me own word
Fortuosity, me never feel alone word
'Round the corner under a tree
Good fortune's waitin' just wait and see

Fortuosity, lucky chances
Fortuitious little happy happenstances
I keep smilin' 'cause my philosophy
Is do your best and leave the rest to fortuosity

(instrumental)

I keep smilin' 'cause my philosophy
Is do your best and leave the rest to fortuosity
