  • South Africa is where I come from
    Get me my banjo, get me my drum
    Kidnap career, and don't take ransom
    Don't let me come out of my dungeon
    When mi did ah leave then take it, it done
    True say mi come out of England, it done
    True say the pattern come from Kingston
    Trinidad, Trinidad, my island

    I see you in here dancing
    Your preview is quite romantic
    I envy your perfect kind of life
    Who knew you'd be so sexy?
    I think you're quite fantastic
    Screw your flaws, you're perfect in my eyes

    And maybe I'm naive for loving you
    You're a cheat and a liar
    But tonight, you're everything I desire

    You beautiful sinner
    I love your wicked heart
    Beautiful sinner
    It's such a work of art
    I didn't know that bad could look so good
    You are the type of bad that feels so good
    You beautiful sinner

    I bet you're hard as stone
    Living in your world alone
    I hope you let me in tonight
    They want me to beware
    You're dangerous, but I don't care
    I can't wait to have you in my arms

    And maybe I'm naive for loving you
    You're a cheat and a liar
    But tonight, you're everything I desire

    You beautiful sinner
    I love your wicked heart
    Beautiful sinner
    It's such a work of art
    I didn't know that bad could look so good
    You are the type of bad that feels so good
    You beautiful sinner

    Maybe you're the master of disguise and you are
    Puttin' on and you're really the saint, the good one
    Are you here to save me from the crowd?
    If you are, then baby, take me now

    Beautiful sinner
    I love your wicked heart
    Beautiful sinner

    It's such a work of art
    I didn't know that bad could look so good (oh, I didn't know)
    You are the type of bad that feels so good
    You beautiful sinner Writer/s: Alexander Junior Grant, Esther Renay Dean, Onika Tanya Maraj
