  • Grenadine quarantine, I like you a lot
    It's LA, "hey" on Zoom, Target parking lot
    And if this is the end, I want a boyfriend
    Someone to eat ice cream with and watch television
    Walk home from the mall with
    'Cause what I really meant is when I'm being honest
    I'm tired of this shit

    'Cause my body is my temple, my heart is one too
    The only thing that still fits me is this black bathing suit
    You don't know me any better than they do, baby
    My time is running over so the only time you'll ever see me
    Is in your dreams, in my black bathing suit
    Looking at me looking over at you
    Real cute 'cause

    He said I was bad
    Let me show you how bad girls do
    'Cause no one does it better
    He said I was bad
    Let me show you what bad girls do
    'Cause no one does it better

    Swisher Sweets, magazines
    Promise you it's not 'cause of you that I'm mean
    It's my afterthoughts
    And what I never said, why there's a price on my head
    It's nothing to do with them, it's my karmic lineage
    So I'm not friends with my mother but still love my dad
    Untraditional lover, can you handle that?

    I guess I'm complicated, my life sorta too
    I wish you could see to my soul through this black bathing suit
    You don't know me any better than they do, baby
    'Cause I sing like an angel, my heart's like one too
    The only thing that fits is this black bathing suit
    Looking at me looking over at you
    Real cute 'cause

    He said I was bad
    Let me show you how bad girls do
    'Cause no one does it better
    He said I was bad
    Let me show you what bad girls do
    'Cause no one does it better
    They said I was bad
    And I'll show them what bad girls do

    In my black bathing suit
    Oh, let 'em talk about me
    They're just yesterday's news
    They're fucking broke and we're laughin' about him
    Mail me when you get the blues
    We'll have the last laugh about it
    By the way, thanks for the shoes
    Your inches really made stacks, your inches really made stacks
    Your inches really made stacks out of it
    Your inches really made stacks out of it for me (so thanks for that)
    Your inches really made stacks out of it for me (so thanks for that)
    Your inches really made stacks out of it for me
    So thanks for that Writer/s: Drew Erickson, Elizabeth Grant
