lyrics

Well, I went to see the fortune teller but she told me what I don't want to hear/Said you best beware, girl, you best beware/She said the cards are stacked against you, girl, something bad is coming, that much is clear/Said you best beware, girl, you best beware/ Said there's a consequence for the things you did, them roosting chickens are coming home/I said now hold up, lady we can't be sure, now/The future isn't etched in stone
What if I meddled in the matter, what if I made a little change/What if I meddled in the matter, what if some things were rearranged/Well, you can see right where I'm headed based on where I'm at/But if I moved just a little to the side, maybe I could dodge all that/What if I meddled in the matter? My future could change like that
Well, that fortune teller leaned back in her chair, she said, now sister girl this better be good/This a powerful mess, how you gonna fix this mess/I said, now just because I usually do the wrong thing, that don't mean I don't know what I should/I can fix this mess, or at least I can shape this mess/I know the law of karma clearly states that what you do is gonna come back to you/So if I start racking up some good behavior, who knows what that might do
What if I meddled in the matter, what if I made a little change/What if I meddled in the matter, what if some things were rearranged/Well, you can see right where I'm headed based on where I'm at/But if I moved just a little to the side, maybe I could dodge all that/What if I meddled in the matter? My future could change like that
What if I move, what if I move/What if I change, what if I change/No, it's not too late, say it's not too late
What if I meddled in the matter, what if I made a little change/What if I meddled in the matter, what if some things were rearranged/Well, you can see right where I'm headed based on where I'm at/But if I moved just a little to the side, maybe I could dodge all that/What if I meddled in the matter? My future, well, you just never know know know/What if I meddled in the matter? My future ain't etched in stone/What if I meddled in the matter? My future...
