  • You got a bad reputation
    That's the word out on the town
    It gives a certain fascination
    But it can only bring you down

    You better turn yourself around
    Turn yourself around
    Turn it upside down
    Turn yourself around

    You had bad breaks well that's tough luck
    You play too hard too much rough stuff
    You're too sly so cold
    That bad reputation has made you old

    Turn yourself around
    Turn yourself around
    Turn it upside down
    Turn yourself around Writer/s: SAMMY HAGAR

  • Silver Dollar from DublinThis was not included on Live And Dangerous because it included a Drum Solo. The Band had to choose between Sha-La-La + Drum Solo, or Bad Reputation + Drum Solo for the Album. Having two Drum Solos would have been too much.
