The chorus includes the lyrics, “I know I’m a lucky man, but I ain’t sure why I am / Cuz it ain’t like anyone deserves the world in the palm of their hand / Now I hit my knees, thankful as can be / But the one thing I can’t get over / How’d a guy like me, who’d have been fine with three / Wind up with a five-leaf clover?”
