Was it something I did
In another life?
I try and try
But nothing comes out right
For me
Bad Karma

Killing me by degrees
I took a wrong turn
On the astral plane
Now I keep on thinkin'
My luck is gonna change
Someday
Bad Karma

It's uphill all the way
I can't run, Can't hide
Can't get away
It must be my destiny
The same thing happens to me every day
Bad Karma

Coming after me
Bad Karma
Killing me by degrees
Bad Karma
Bad Karma

It's a dog's life
And it's not my fault
Ought to hang my picture
In the All-Time Losers'
Hall of Fame
Bad Karma

It's a low-down dirty shame
I can't run, Can't hide
Can't get away
It must be my destiny
The same thing happens to me every day
Bad Karma

Coming after me
Bad Karma
Killing me by degrees
Bad Karma
Bad Karma
