  • Say you like the torture honey
    Don't forget the whip
    My left hand's getting loose
    Don't let me slip
    Said you got some handcuffs
    Throw out the key
    I don't need a safe word
    No you don't gotta save me

    If pain's what you like
    Torture me all night

    Make love burnin'
    Love how you keep me hurting
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me
    With that body, you got the right to get naughty
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me

    You say you gotta be the boss
    'Cause you pay them bills
    There's a brand new position
    Someone's gotta fill (Pick me)
    They say you need a whisper
    You wanna hear me scream
    Lookin' so smokin'
    Honey, I can barely breathe

    If pain's what you like
    Torture me all night

    Make love burnin'
    Love how you keep me hurting
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me
    With that body, you got the right to get naughty
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me
    Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?
    Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?

    (You gotta be mean, baby, listen up, hey)
    Gladly I'll take poison from your lips (From your lips)
    Touch you when I burn my fingertips, ah, ah
    I blame that to love, I must commit
    If you want, then I'll submit
    If you want, then I'll submit
    (Ow!)

    Make love burnin'
    Love how you keep me hurting
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me
    With that body, you got the right to get naughty
    So ooh-ooh be mean, be mean to me
    Be mean to me
    Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?
    Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me? Writer/s: JAMES ALAN GHALEB, JOSEPH JONAS, OSCAR MICHAEL GOERRES, OSCAR THOMAS HOLTER
