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" în versuri

Emir Djulović - 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 [fn] 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

Kasta - Radio signals

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,

Drake - Congratulations

Phone blowin up, so I'm cuttin off my cellular
I'm a superstar, noted on to my nebula
I will break a leg, break an arm and a fibula
When I break it down, when I, when I break it dooow-haaaah-owwwn

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
It's showtime bitch, tell me break a leg
Couple Bushwick niggas, that'll break your leg

Umbrellas - The city lights

I've got this feeling
Things will be alright
So go break a leg now
Been given the green light

Mans Zelmerlow - Story of ESC (That's Eurovision)

The singers come together like songbirds of a feather
For victory they hope and pray and beg
[Måns]: Wait there in the green room, an often rather mean room, wishing all of our competitors break a leg
[Petra]: The impact of the show I cannot overstate

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,

Orgi-E - City2Music #WhatAreYouLookingAt

and own signing, own record label,
I have created my own business.
It says break a leg on the side of our company cars,
the bad boys of Vestegnen[fn]An area west of Copenhagen.[/fn] possess all means.

Green Day - Fell For You

Did you crash in my imagination too?

Break a leg and you crush my heart,
I'm a mess and you're a work of art.

Caetano Veloso - Break A Leg!

Break a leg, you too!
Tell people to break a leg and it'll be alright
Break a leg every night
And forevermore, amen.

I bring nothing to the system
I arrive at the end of the food chain with open mouth and I complain
Before going point I hesitate to break a leg
I wait my reward to the assedic music awards

I don't care even if I break a leg,
I've invited you to ice skating,

This could be the start of the rest of our lives

Break a leg, be brave in every step you take
Pack your bag full of loving, sack full of hoping
