Lucky for you we have a delivery service!”

Lucky lucky! How lucky am I?
If I need something, there’s a delivery guy

Who’ll hop on a bike or scoot in car
He’ll come from near, he’ll come from far

Or maybe it’s a gal who’ll deliver the things

Faster than others I’ve used in the past

Their boxes are built to withstand the weather
For things that are heavy or light as a feather

It surely doesn’t matter what’s inside
It arrives in one piece, delivered with pride

And guess what else arrives at my door?
Why a gargantuan smile, each time, for sure!

This is why there’s a stash that I keep
Of ten dollar bills gathered in a heap

So when the delivery human arrives
I give them a tenner and some giddy high fives!

Lucky lucky! How lucky are we?
We live in a time with delivery!
