The expression arises from show business.

The belief is that anyone's wish of good fortune, a successful show, will result in a "jinx", an inevitable curse, on the act.

Of course, breaking a leg on stage would be a "jinx", a nasty stroke of bad luck, so the supposition is that if you wish good luck on someone it results in bad, likewise if you wish bad luck on someone, it results in good.

« Break a leg » dans des paroles

Emir Đulović - Shoes

The time has come, the time to live with you

And, thank God, even when I break a leg, I run
Because without you, I can't stand the nights

Ghali - Wily Wily

You learning a new word and repeating it,
Who defames you but doesn't talk when you meet him,
Who says "Break a leg" and hopes that you drop dead,
The Italian people who let themselves be fooled,

Claudio Capéo - Rich

At the age when one disowns their dad, you'll disown me
And I won't make manners, nor cinema
You'll tell me shit 1

  • 1. I'm unsure, but this expression could mean "you'll wish me luck". Sometimes in France, before an exam or an important performance peple will say "Je te dis merde" which literally means "I tell you shit" but it's like saying "break a leg" in English. You say it because the belief is that actually wishing somenody "good luck" will bring about bad luck.
    So this line could mean one of two things:

Pinguini Tattici Nucleari - Vegetables

A word is too much
While two are too few
So break a leg, Princess Mononoke
Because I'm done with sad songs

Here she is, herself, fast beside!
Heart has swelled and gone up to throat...
So, break a leg! I stood up obediently
And with horror understood, that I`m walking right to her,

He's the graveyard legend of the danging game
Rumor has it he invented how to knock 'em dead
He's the reason we all say "break a leg"

Jesse Rutherford - Hollywood Friends

Hey
Welcome to LA
Break a leg
Daytrip took it to ten, hey

Epic Rap Battles of History - Dr. Seuss vs Shakespeare

Spaccheremo i nostri piedi nel tuo culo coi nostri pigiamini interi 1
Amico, ti cucineremo e ti mangeremo con un po' di prosciutto e uova verdi 2
Ti spaccheremo le gambe! Non fraintendere, siamo incazzati! 3
Non tutto finisce bene quando usciamo dalla nostra gabbia 4

  • 1. le due Cose sono vestite con pigiamini rossi, che coprono anche piedi e mani.
  • 2. ancora un riferimento al libro di Dr. Seuss, "Green eggs and ham".
  • 3. "break a leg" è l'augurio usato in Inghilterra prima di uno spettacolo. Qui però si precisa che lo si intende in senso letterale.
  • 4. riferimento alla commedia di Shakespeare "Tutto è bene quel che finisce bene".

Shaban & Käptn Peng - House on fire

I can't see a thing, "cough", there's smoke everywhere,
where's the door, it has to be here somehwere,
I stumble, "klirr" and break a leg.
"Crack-ahhh", perfect, who needs legs,

Måns Zelmerlöw - Story of ESC (That's Eurovision)

The singers come together like songbirds of a feather
For victory they hope and pray and beg

[Petra]: The impact of the show I cannot overstate

Nicki Minaj - Wamables

I like percocets, I like to keep 'em hidden in my Birkin bag
Ass so fat, damn I'mma hurt 'em bad

Drake - Congratulations

Phone blowin up, so I'm cuttin off my cellular

Before going point I hesitate to break a leg
