What does Ka Ching mean? ( Ka Ching by Shania Twain)

Because I heard it has something to do with 'bad luck' or so. But I am not very sure.

We say it when someone finally understands something- it is meant to sound like money falling into a slot- to match the expression the 'penny's dropped', at least we say penny in British English.;-)

There's another meaning. :D The sound an old cash register made when a sale was made. "Ka-Ching" refers to $$ being spent. It's such a beautiful thing to be able to spend money:

[Chorus]
Can you hear it ring
It makes you wanna sing
It's such a beautiful thing--Ka-ching!
Lots of diamond rings
The happiness it brings
You'll live like a king
With lots of money and things
