Intro
ah baby,come on now, what’s wrong girl
don’t worry baby, everything gon be alright

Verse
Don’t go break no mirrors, cross your fingers when you lie oh say it
You don’t need no bad luck in your life
In the church on Sunday for all you done from Monday
Cause you don’t need no bad luck in your life

Oh and when, night begins to fall
Gypsy makes her call, in her crystal ball
You gon’ have it all

Don’t be shy
Life is good you don’t need to know why
Bet your chips, get your kicks
Dance all night

Chorus
Oh and then
Now what
Everything was goin so good
Now what
Now what
Now what
Now what
Now what

Verse
She knows Santeria, burns a candle every night, oh say it with me
She don’t need no bad luck in her life, oh sing
Baby cried the whole night, Abuéla danced in all white
Cause you don’t need no bad luck in her life

Read your palm, look at how these lines begin to intertwine
It means in no time, you gon live real fine

Rock yo shit it’s your world we just all live in it
Rapturing it’s your thing
Dance all night

Chorus
Now what, I don’t think I’m gonna make it
Now what, Oh now what
Now what, Oh now what
Everything was goin so good
Now what, everything was goin so good
Now what Now what
Now what Now what
Now what

Bridge
When I was a child didn’t realize
Life was just a compromise
Between what we would want and what we get
So when we grow and figure out
How very difficult it is to really get ahead
We settle in and wait for things to go wrong instead
now what

what did I do to deserve it
what did I do to deserve it
repeat

Chorus
Now what
Now what
Repeat
