  • Grimly fiendish plays the game that never plays
    Sing out loud but never prayed
    Grimly fiendish wears a coat that's black and long
    He doesn't know that it's all wrong

    Simply fiendish, a child caught in a grown up world
    No lies convince the court
    Once a week I could be found on the faces all the frowns
    Hide and seek, tried so hard to find that crime could pay
    Just for today

    Bad lad bad boy

    Bad lad bad boy

    Let me get the story straight
    You never gave me a break
    It's a case of give and take
    You didn't make me good you just painted me green
    You made me part of your forgotten dream

    Grimly fiendish, we'll send you just where you belong
    Where the children can't be found

    Bad lad bad boy
    Bad lad bad boy

    Hide and seek, tried so hard and just to find that crime could pay
    Just for today
