Unlucky - Poem by Beryl Harrison

You walk under a ladder and the paint tin falls on you
I walk under a ladder, I get the painter too.
You fall off a building with a long long way too go
You fall off the building, guess whose stood below?
And you say that your unlucky, i'ts plain you don't know me,
you'd pay full price to get in Hell, I'd get in for free.
You say that your's clear you don't know me.
If your in goal and let in one, Im sure to let in three.
You think that your unlucky you think things can't get worse,
I know that I'm unlucky who was it wrote this verse.
