  • You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so
    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

    You think you're in love
    Like it's a real sure thing
    But every time you fall
    You get yo' ass in a sling
    You used to be strong
    But now it's "ooh baby please"
    'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees

    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so
    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

    We was making love
    When you told me that you loved me
    I thought ol' cupid
    He was taking aim
    I was believer when you told me
    That you loved me
    And then you called me
    Someone else's name

    There ain't gonna be no more
    Beggin' you please
    You know what I want
    And it ain't one of these
    You're bad to the bone
    And your girlfriend agreed
    That falling in love is so hard on the knees

    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so
    You're so bad, you're so

    Chip off the old block
    Man, you're so much like your sister
    My fantasize it must be out of luck
    My old libido has been
    Blowing a transistor
    I feel like I have been hit by a fuck
    Yeah

    I'm jonesin' on love
    Yeah I got the dt's
    You say that we will
    But there ain't no guarantees
    I'm major in love
    But in all minor key
    'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees

    What are you looking for
    It's got to be hard core
    Must be some kind of nouveau riche

    Is this your only chance
    Or some hypnotic trance
    Let's get you on a tighter leach

    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so
    You're so bad, you're so bad, you're so

    You ain't that good
    Is what you said
    Down to the letter
    But you like the way
    I hold the microphone
    Sometimes I good but
    When I'm bad I'm even better
    Don't give me no lip
    I've got enough of my own

    There ain't gonna be
    No more beggin' you please
    You know what I want
    And it ain't one of these
    You're bad to the bone
    And your girlfriend agreed
    That falling in love is so hard on the knees

    I'm jonesin' on love
    Yeah I got the dt's
    You say that we will, yeah
    But there ain't no guarantees
    I'm major in love
    But in all minor key
    'Cause falling in love is so hard on the knees
