If you could only read my mind
You would know that things between us
Ain't right
I know your arms are open wide
But you're a little on the straight side
I can't lie

Your one vice
Is you're too nice
Come around now can't you see

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complete me
Mistreat me
Want you to be bad

If you could only read my mind
You would know that I've been waiting
So long
For someone almost like you
But with attitude, I'm waiting So come on

Get out of clothes time
Grow out those highlights
Come around now can't you see

I want you
In a vinyl suit
I want you bad

Complicated
X-rated
I want you bad

Don't get me wrong
I know you're only being good
But that's what's wrong
I guess I just misunderstood

I want you
All tattooed
I want you bad

Complicated
X- rated
I want you bad

I mean it
I need it
I want you bad

    General Commentpretty much being with a girl you like,but she has these hang ups about being what people want her to be,and being a prissy,britney type,and wanting her to be bad as she can be....neat,kinda twisted love song perhaps

    General CommentIt's a love song with a twist, people. "I want you bad - LITERALLY" It's pretty clever...

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs of offsprings, and it has a sweet chorus.

    General CommentIs this supposed to be punk!??
    I hope the new album isn't like this cos the real punk fans will just walk away

    Actually, buddy, the breakout album Smash was labeled Indie. So punk fans never really got turned on. Heh i wish people would just forget the selling out BS because honestly I don't think accusing Dexter, Noodles, Greg, and Ron will actually influence their style. If you don't like their new stuff, buy the old. Don't like the old buy the new. Don't like Offspring shut yoru MOUTH. Yeah, I know it's quite simple.

    General CommentLots of male opinions (i'm assuming thats what the blue/pink lines are). This song could be about me. I'm not bad, but the guys I like would like me to be.

    General CommentWhat a great.fucking.song. Yeah it's pretty obvious it's about a guy who wants his nice-girl to be dirty and have a little more attitude. How hot.
