( Superstitious song lyrics )
FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH
Copyright 2005 - MickTerry.com

I don't consider me- superstitious.
I never think of me- in those terms.
When it comes to black cats & silly things like that,
there're more important things that I have learned.

I don't go walking be-neath a ladder:
there might be painters up there falling down.
Broken mirrors don't stress: I just pick up the mess.
And spilling salt's not even worth a frown.

    No, FRIDAY THE THIRTEENTH doesn't bother me at all.
    It's Saturday the Fourteenth that drives me up a wall.
    Then, Sunday the Fifteenth I really start to crack.
    By Monday the Sixteenth I'm a totally nervous wreck.

I don't mind opening umbrellas inside.
I'm never frightened by the thirteenth floor.
I don't knock- on wood because it does no good.
But there is one thing bugs me so much more:

    CHORUS

        A rabbit's foot didn't seem too lucky for the rabbit.
        How would it help me fare any better than the hare?

    CHORUS

"Friggatriskaidekaphobia:
Combination of Norse & Greek roots words for 'fear', 'Friday' & '13':
combination of 2 separate superstition-induced phobias
- 13 & Friday are unlucky in much of folklore.

12 is a complete number in Judeo-Christian culture:
12 months in year, 12 hours on standard clock, 12 Apostles,
12 tribes of Israel, 12 days of Christmas, 12 eggs in dozen, etc.
Academic folklorists rationalize the superstition
in that there is something unsettling, even repugnant,
about going just a bit "beyond completeness".
Majority of skyscrapers have no 13th floor
& many modern hotels have no room #13.

As for Friday, it is unlucky in a few ancient cultures.
In Christianity, it is the day of Jesus' crucifixion.
There have been 12 films in the Friday the 13th series.
The 13th opened on Friday the 13th of July in 2012.

If 1st day of a month is Sunday = Friday the 13th that month.
Only one Friday the 13th in 2010 & one in 2011.
Some years can have up to 3.

Among pagans & heathens, 13 is a lucky number."

(from Garrison Keillor)
