Well, well
Look down-hearted and confused
Because lately youve been startin' to lose
Losin' out on everything, you might try to do
Bad lucks there, its got a hold on you

Dont send you money, bout to lose your home
Done lose your woman and everything you own
Love always plainly states that chances go around
But if you wanna know the truth about it
And tell you whats pullin' you down, yeah

You got bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got
(Yes, uh)
Bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got
Bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got
You got bad luck, bad luck

Played a number cause that numbers hot
But the bookers gets you for every cent youve got
Walk around in a daze with your pockets bare
Got to see your woman and she aint even there

Dont seem to give a whiz about it and all your trapped in time
The more I think about it, I think youre bout to lose your mind
Some people call it jinxed, some say it aint my day, huh
But if you wanna know the truth about it
And tell you whats pullin' you way down

Bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got
(Yes, uh)
Bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got

You got bad luck
Thats what you got, thats what you got
You got bad luck, bad luck
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad

One long week
Ooh, huh, yeah, yeah
One more thing

Love always plainly states that chances go around
But if you wanna know the truth about it
And tell you whats pullin' you down
Down, down, down, down, down

Bad luck
(Yes, uh)
Thats what you got, thats what you got
You got bad luck
(Oh, yeah)
Thats what you got, thats what you got

Bad luck

Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, bad luck
I cant get away from this bad luck

Huh, bad luck
Bad, bad
I want to get away but I cant keep myself
Cause I got bad luck
Huh, bad luck, yall
Children sing with me, bad luck
Everybodys got bad luck, bad luck, bad luck

People in the world out there
I know none yall satisfied, satisfied
The way crisis has been goin' on, oh, babe
I better say Im just mad about mornin' paper, yeah
They cut down on smokin', we have to cut down on dreamin'

Cause early one morning I got me a paper, huh
I sat down on my living room floor
Opened it up opened it up, guess, what I saw, huh?
Saw the President of the United States
The man said he was gonna give it up
Hes giving us high hopes

But he still turned around and left all us poor folks behind
They say they got another man to take his place
But I dont think they need to satisfy the human race
Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

The only the thing that I got that I can hold on
Is my God, huh, my God, huh
Jesus be with me, Jesus
Give me good luck, good luck
Help me Jesus, huh, everybody needs
