People With Bad Luck

This song is by Greg Brown and appears on the album In the Dark with You (1985).

People with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and goin', ooh

If ya got the good luck it's hard to figure out
What the one with the bad luck is carryin on about
What would just enough of the good luck and money or the lack of it do
Make a young man of 40 an old man of 22

People with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and they're goin', ooh

Maybe someone you thought was very kind and true
Turned around and did somethin' just plain mean to you
And it might make you cry, and it might make you real mad
And it might get you to thinkin' about the kind of luck that you both had

People with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and they're goin', ooh

Don't we all want to laugh a little, don't we all want to cry
Don't we all want to live a little before it's time to die
If ya got the good luck it sure might seem that way
But if you got the bad luck you just cannot make it through the day

People with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and goin', ooh

Once I had me a good friend, he was funny and full of cheer
But his luck was always so bad and he's no longer here
Sometimes in this world I'm wonderin that we ain't grateful for every breath
Sometimes in this world I'm wonderin that we don't all just drink ourselves to death

People with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and they're goin', ooh
Yeah the people with the bad luck lookin' at the people with the good luck and they're goin', ooh
