  • Right
    I should've known you were bad news
    From the bad boy demeanor, and the tattoos
    Small skies only want one thing
    That I'm undecided, trying to figure out if that's you
    Either way though, I think you're worth a test drive
    'Cause the way is so much better than the next guy
    And a little trouble only makes for a good time
    So all the normal red flags be a good sign

    Don't you come here thinking about it, ain't that far
    You seem like trouble to me
    I can tell by the way that you lean
    And the way that you kiss your teeth
    And you turn up so flashy clean
    Smells like trouble to me

    Opposites attract, I guess this is it
    Good girl bad guy, what a perfect match
    And if I you, gonna wanna play baptized
    'Cause when you finish you gonna feel like you was baptized
    See baby now you're feeling for a test drive
    'Cause you don't wanna loose your ride to the next guy
    And baby trouble only makes for a good time
    So all the normal red flags be a good sign

    Don't you come here thinking about it, ain't that far
    You seem like trouble to me
    I can tell by the way that you lean
    And the way that you kiss your teeth
    And you turn up so flashy clean
    Smells like trouble to me

    I got a bad form in the worst way
    Dear Lord, how'd I get in this position
    Should've never gotten involved in the first place
    Second place never get the recognition
    See what he doing to me make me have to should it out
    Gotta hold on me that's without a doubt
    So clear now he's a trouble starter
    But I ain't the same either and he's in no still water
    Just cause I'mma get to file in extrophy
    Don't mean nothing to me
    Till you show me where it's at
    Smells like trouble to me

    Just cause I'mma get to file in extrophy
    Don't mean nothing to me
    Till you show me where it's at
    Smells like trouble to me
    I should've known you were bad news (knew you were bad news)
    From the bad boy demeanor and the tattoos (all of the tattoos)

    I should've known you were bad news (knew you were bad news)
    But I'm undecided trying to figure out if that's you (trouble to me)
    Don't you come here thinking about it, ain't that far
    You seem like trouble to me
    I can tell by the way that you lean
    And the way that you kiss your teeth
    And you turn up so flashy clean
    Smells like trouble to me Writer/s: ALEX ORIET, AMETHYST AMELIA KELLY, DAVID PHELAN, GEORGE ASTASIO, ISABELLA JANET FLORENTINA SUMMERS, JASON ANDREW PEBWORTH, JOHN TURNER, JONATHAN SHAVE, JUDITH GLORY HILL
