  • (Bad boys, bad boys)
    Alexandra, girl, I know what you like
    (Bad boys, bad boys)
    Oh, oh (bad boys, bad boys)
    Hey, yeah (bad boys, bad boys)

    Some people call them players
    But I'm far from terrified
    'Cause somehow I'm drawn to danger
    And have been all of my life
    It feels my heart divided
    Halfway between wrong and right
    I know I'm playing with fire
    But I don't know why

    Yeah, the bad boys are always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    Even though I know they're no good for me
    It's the risk I take for the chemistry
    With the bad boys always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh way, ooh wha)
    Ooh, bad boys

    Some think it's complicated
    But they're straight-up fun for me
    I don't need no explanation
    It's nothing more than what you see here
    My heart still feels divided
    Halfway between wrong and right
    I know I'm playing with fire
    But I don't know why

    Yeah, the bad boys are always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    Even though I know they're no good for me
    It's the risk I take for the chemistry
    With the bad boys always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh way, ooh wha)

    I know you want me shawty 'cause I'm a (bad boy)
    Hey shawty can't help it, she so so addicted to them rougher fellas
    With even the alphabet she only sings the crooked letters
    Let mama take all the risks
    For that chemistry she like them tougher than leather
    ?
    By any means necessary, girl
    She likes them ruthless, that's my world
    It's not the news, it's what I heard
    To get them more the merrier
    It's not a big surprise
    I know them bad boys catch your eyes
    Look at her walk when I go in disguise
    You'll have them shawty, don't worry, you fly

    Yeah, the bad boys are always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    I said the bad boys are always spinning my mind
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    Even though I know they're no good for me
    It's the risk I take for the chemistry
    With the bad boys always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    Yeah, the bad boys are always spinning my mind
    (Ooh way, ooh wha)
    I said the bad boys are always catching my eye
    (Ooh way, ooh way, ooh wha)
