"Born Under A Bad Sign" as written by William Bell and Booker T. Jr. Jones....
[Chorus:]
Born under a bad sign.
I've been down since I began to crawl.
If it wasn't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all.

Bad luck and trouble's my only friend.
I've been down ever since I was ten.

[Chorus]

You know, wine and women is all I crave.
A big bad woman's gonna carry me to my grave.

[Chorus]

Bad luck and trouble's been my only friend.
I've been down ever since I was ten.

Born under a bad sign.
I've been down since I began to crawl.
If it wasn't for bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck.
If it wasn't for real bad luck,
I wouldn't have no luck at all.

Born under a bad sign.
Born under a bad sign.

    General CommentI don't think I've ever made it through listening to this song without singing along at the top of my lungs. Regardless of whose around. Just plain badness.
