Why do people believe in some old sign? (2x)
To hear a hoot owl holler, someone is surely dyin'
Some will break a mirror, cry bad luck for seven years (2x)
And if a black cat crosses them, they'll break right down in tears
To dream of muddy water, trouble is knockin' at your door (2x)
Your man is sure to leave you, and never return no more
When your man come home evil, tell you you are getting old (2x)
That's a true sign he's got someone else bakin' his jelly roll
