  • If I was a pirate, sailing the seas
    Would you come pillage the village with me?
    We'll bury the treasure and go down together
    If I was a pirate

    If I was an outlaw, robbing a bank
    Would you be my Bonnie, help me get away?
    Would you pull the trigger and blow 'em away?
    If I was an outlaw

    How bad would I have to be?
    How bad?

    If I was a vampire, roaming the night
    Would you be my prey and put your neck on the line?
    Live in the shadows and die in the light?
    If I was a vampire

    If I was a wanted man on the run
    Would you take a fall if we were under the gun
    And drop down beside me in the nooses they've hung?

    If I was a wanted man on the run

    How bad would I have to be?
    How bad?

    If I was the worst man in the world
    Would you still be my girl?
    The scariest monster you ever seen
    Would you still love me?

    If I was a killer with blood on my hands
    Would you be my alibi and lie on the stand?
    Swear on your life that I'm an innocent man?
    If I was a killer

    How bad would I have to be?
