Born Under a Bad Sign is the third track on the album The Simpsons Sing the Blues. It was originally sung by Albert King. It was written by William Bell and Booker T. Jones. On the album, it is performed by Homer with some help from legendary blues guitarist B.B. King with his guitar, Lucille, and the horn section from the band Tower of Power.

LyricsEdit

Born under a bad sign,
I've been down since I began to crawl!
If it wasn't for bad luck,
You know, I wouldn't have no luck at all!
Hard luck and trouble
Been my only friend.
I've been on my own
Ever sinced I was ten!
Born under a bad sign!
I've been down since I began to crawl!
If it wasn't for bad luck,
You know, I wouldn't have no luck at all!
I do not like to read,
I can hardly write.
My whole life has been
One big fight!
Born under a bad sign!
I've been down since I began to crawl!
If it wasn't for bad luck,
I said I wouldn't have no luck at all!
And that ain't no lie!
(B.B. King plays a solo on Lucille)
Y'know, if it wasn't for bad luck,
I would not have no kind of luck!
If it wasn't for real bad luck,
I would not have no luck at all!
You know, beer and bowling
Is all I crave.
A big bag of pork rinds
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 tell ya I wouldn't have no luck at all!
Good take, boys! Yeah! I think that now that I'm a blues singer, I should have some kind of name. How 'bout Muddy Simpson? No? Big Homer! T-Bone Homer! Blind Lemon Simpson! ........ Blind Lemon-Lime Homer! Blind Grapefuit Homer! Blind Strawberry Alarm Clock Homer! No, that's ... That's ... They used that already. Blind ...
