Wishing I Was Lucky - Wet Wet Wet

Wishing I Was Lucky

Part One
80s pop Scottish wet wet wet british


Two years after obtaining a record deal with Polygram records, "Wishing I Was Lucky" was the first single released by "White Soul" Scottish group Wet Wet Wet. The single was a success reaching #6 in the UK in June 1987, spending 17 weeks in the Top 100. It was also a minor hit in the USA, reaching the lower end of the Billboard charts at #58. The lyrics reflected the despair felt by the unemployed in the midst of the political climate of Thatcher's Britain. The Wets did indeed become lucky after the success of their debut single, with the album "Popped In Souled Out" eventually reaching #1 on the UK album chart in early 1988. Further success would follow with a string of hit singles and albums.


Wet Wet Wet are a successful Scottish pop band who scored a number of hits in the British and international charts in the 1980s and 1990s. They were formed in Clydebank, Scotland in 1982. They took their name from the Scritti Politti song, "Gettin, havin' and holdin'". In 1994 Wet Wet Wet had their biggest hit, with a cover version of The Troggs' single "Love is All Around", which was a huge international success and spent 15 weeks at Number 1 in the British charts.

Wishing I Was Lucky - Wet Wet Wet

I was living in a world of make believe
When my best friend wrote and told me
That there may be a job in the city
And you never told me

He would dream about another scheme
About another sordid hall of dreams
About a man who's king of industry
He would swear by his mouth almighty
He would buy the best
But never something new
And he never told me

I like kicking in the gutter and
Wishing I was lucky
Wishing I was lucky, wishing I was lucky
Oh I like kicking in the gutter
Wishing I was lucky, wishing I was lucky

It's the only life I know
Lie, lie, lie is all you ever do
To make me want to push on through
Cry, cry, cry cry is all I ever do
Say that's how you want to make me push on through

I like kicking in the gutter and
Wishing I was lucky
Wishing I was lucky, wishing I was lucky
Oh I like kicking in the gutter
Wishing I was lucky, wishing I was lucky

My best friend wrote and told me so
He said that there may be a job in the city

I like kicking in the gutter and
Wishing I was lucky
Wishing I was lucky, wishing I was lucky
I was wishing I was lucky

Hey son go, hey son go, to the city
