Lyrics:
Uh
Woo
Well, well

Look down-hearted and confused
Because lately you've been startin' to lose
Losin' out on everything you might try to do
Bad luck's there, it's got a hold on you

Losing money, `bout to lose your home
Done lost your woman and everything you own
Law of averages plainly states that chances go around
But if you want know the truth about it and tell you what's pullin' you down, yeah

(You got) Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got (Yes, uh)
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got (You got)
Bad luck, bad luck (Bad)

Played a number `cause that number's hot stuff
But the bookies get you for every cent you've got
Walk around in a daze with your pockets bare
Go to see your woman and she ain't even there

???Don't seem to give a whiz about it and all your trapped in time???
The more I think about it, I think you're `bout to lose your mind
Some people call it jinxed, some say it ain't my day, huh
But if you wanna know the truth about it and tell you what's pullin' you way down

Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got (Yes, uh)
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got (You got)
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's 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

Law of averages plainly states that chances go around
But if you wanna know the truth about it and tell you what's pullin' you down
Down, down, down, down, down

Bad luck (Yes, uh)
That's what you got, that's what you got (You got)
Bad luck (Oh.yeah)
That's what you got, that's what you got (You got)
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got (You got)
Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, bad luck

Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, bad luck

Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got
Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, bad luck (I can't get away from this bad luck)

Huh
Bad luck
Bad, bad
I want to get away but I can't keep myself
`Cause I got bad luck
Huh, bad luck, y'all
Children sing with me, 'Bad luck'
Everybody's got bad luck, bad luck, bad luck

Bad luck
That's what you got, that's what you got Bad luck That's what you got, that's what you got Bad luck That's what you got, that's what you got Bad luck, bad luck, bad luck, bad luck Bad luck That's what you got, that's what you got (Mmm...mmm...) Bad luck That's what you got, that's what you got Bad luck That's what you got, that's what you got (Hey) Bad luck (Yeah), bad luck, bad luck (Come on), bad luck (Come on) Ga-ga, woo People in the world out there I know none-a y'all satisfied, satisfied The way crisis has been goin' on, oh, babe I better say I'm just mad about mornin' paper, yeah They cut down on smokin' [Cut down on smokin'] We have to cut down on dreamin' [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], opened it up [Opened it up] Guess, what I saw, huh? Saw the President of the United States, huh The man said he was gonna give it up He's 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 don't think they need to satisfy the human race Bad luck, huh 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, huh, good luck Help me Jesus, huh Everybody needs Transcribed by: Char Star found at Lyrics World: http://lyrics.natalnet.com.br/summer.html
