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.

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.

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

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 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.

When I come back to life all I want to be is Eric. Is that too much to ask? I played that album so much when I was in HS that the needle (remember needles?) started playing the other side of the album. One of their best cuts - and they had a LOT of them.

:clap: more Ginger Baker!
:D boy can i relate :roll:

Yes, they were all egotistical asses, but damn they made some fine music!
It is nice to be reminded of a musical pinnacle that stood as part of the soundtrack of a particularly fruitful time of personal growth, and now is just a lost beacon in the fog of forgotten youth.
Very good, as usual. Please, add more Cream!
i hang out a few klicks north of tequillaville.
eternally sweet.
Man I love this song. I haven\'t heard it in decades! :cool:
Listen to that drumming. tight, funky, yet bluesy
