Walk Under Ladders

(Reference to my Joan Armatrading song, the function title song of which is I’m Lucky.

Sunday at about 3 a.m., a drunk driver roared down my residential street, smashed into one car and did considerable damage, hit an SUV and totalled it, then spun around and ended up about six inches behind our car.

I left for church but just missed the bus. There’s not nother one on a Sunday for a half hour. Fortunately, a choir member was also running late and gave me a ride.

A couple from my church rang the doorbell early in the afternoon,. They had discovered my Discover card lying on the ground in front of the church, and they were delivering it to me.

“I don’t need a bracelet
No salt
For my shoulder
I don’t own a rabbit
No clover
No heather
No wonder
I’m lucky”
And spealing of “functional title song”, can you help me with a list I used to own, but lost? A “functional title song” has the title of the album in the song. Examples:
Shawn Colvin’s “A Few Small Repairs” has that line appear in “Sunny Came Home”.
Paul Simon’s “Negotiations and Love Songs” greatest hits collection has that line appear in “Train in the Distance”.
Nivana’s “Nevermind” has that word appear in “Smells Like Teen Spirit”.
I KNOW there are a lot more. Thanks.
