Lyrics:
At any gambling casino
From Monte Carlo to Reno
They tell you that a beginner
Comes out a winner

Beginner fishing for flounder
Will catch a 17 pounder
That's what I always heard
And thought absurd,
But now, I believe every word

For I've got beginner's luck
The first time that I'm in love
I'm in love with you
Gosh, I'm lucky

I've got beginner's luck
There never was such a smile
Or such eyes of blue
Gosh, I'm fortunate

The thing we've begun
Is much more than a pastime
For this time is the one
Where the first time is the last time

I've got beginner's luck
Lucky, through and through
Cause the first time that I'm in love
I'm in love with you

(bridge)

The thing we've begun
Is much more than a pastime
For this time is the one
Where the first time is the last time

I've got beginner's luck
Lucky, through and through
Cause the first time that I'm in love
Yes, the first time that I'm in love
Oh, the first time that I'm in love
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
I'm in love with you
