Perry Como - "Better Luck Next Time" lyrics

"Better luck next time" that could never be,
Because there ain't gonna be no next time for me . . .
No Siree, made up my mind to make another start,
I've made my mind up but I can't make up my heart . . .

I'd like a new lucky day, that would be nice,
But this comes just once in a lifetime, not twice . . .
So don't say, "Better luck next time, that could never be"
Because there ain't gonna be no next time for me . . .

I would like a new lucky day, that would be nice,
But this comes just once in a lifetime, not twice . . .
So don't say, "Better luck next time", that could never be,
Because there ain't gonna be no next time for me . . .
There ain't gonna be no next time for me . . .
