lyrics

I've seen you in the ballpark stands.
You're always and forever making plans.
I'm thinking you're better at everything,
so I'll be alone tonight and every coming evening.

I'm a king, waiting only to disarm.
’Cause that’s the lot in life of a bad luck charm,
that’s the lot in life of a bad luck charm.

At the freeway in the freezing rain,
it was snowing just before the day you came.
Silently pining ’til we went out dining,
then I ran out of money too fast—bad timing.

Your face always floats with a sense of alarm,
’cause you’re on a date with a bad luck charm.
You’re on a date with a bad luck charm.

I'll meet you after work where it’s warm and dry;
there’s about a thousand nails stuck in your eye.
I’m somehow nowhere and looking away.
You wanna know me, but I’ve got nothing to say.

You oughtta pass me up.
You oughtta move right along.
Stop wasting your time with a bad luck charm,
wasting your time with a bad luck charm.
You're wasting your time with this bad luck charm.
You’re wasting your time with a bad luck charm.

Bad luck charm. Bad luck charm. Bad luck charm.
