Old 97's - Bad luck charm

Kill the bottle and build a fire
Watch the flames lick the telephone wire
You knew I was trouble from the start

Know-it-all, yeah, you should have known better
Baby I'm bad right down to the letter
You spent too much time gambling with your heart

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

You were looking for love last night
I was looking for a light
I never am where I'm supposed to be

You might think I'm a hell of a catch
But lightin' my fire's like three on a match
It's between the devil and you and me


If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

Could you please believe
I didn't mean to do no harm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

How'd I end up tangled in your feet?
When I'm just another black cat
Crossing your street

If you cross your fingers
You can hang me on your arm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm

Could you please believe
I didn't mean to do no harm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm
Baby, I'm a bad luck charm
