"Bad Influence" as written by Kate Pierson, Keith Strickland and Fred Schneider....
Call it bad,
My bad, my bad influence.

Big town holds me back,
Big town skins my mind.
Small minds wear me down,
Spreading salt on fertile ground.
Honest pleasures now forsaken,
Drastic measures to be taken.
Can't accept your difference,
They call it bad influence.

[Chorus]
Free mind, free soul,
It's time for liberation to flow.
Free mind, free soul,
It's time, so let your future unfold.

Call it bad,
My bad, my bad influence.

Break out of the mold before the mold sets in.
Dangerous walls are closin' in.
They twist the truth,
Then give it a spin.
Love's a grenade, I'll pull the pin.

[Chorus]

The circle is wide.
Shadows flower into the light.

Bad influence.
Bad, such a bad influence.
You think I'm bad,
You think I'm bad.
Well I'm the most fun that you ever had.
So good, so good,
But people say I'm a bad influence.

Wide mouths, narrow minds,
Can't accept your difference.
Open season on new ideas,
They call it bad influence.

[Chorus]

My bad, my bad influence.
Just a bad influence.
My bad, my bad influence.

Call it bad,
My bad, my bad influence.

Wide mouths with narrow minds;
Narrow minds, creak and grind.
Rally to a peaceful sound,
Let the barriers tumble down.

My bad, my bad influence.
My bad, my bad influence.

Break out of the mold before the mold sets in.
Dangerous walls are closin' in.
They twist the truth,
Then give it a spin.
If love's a grenade, better pull the pin!

Call it bad,
My bad, my bad influence.

    General CommentThis song seems to me to be about gay rights issues and the people that oppose them being close-minded and not wanting to expand their knowledge. They are singing of being different and coming out even though it is not going to be accepted by society. They are embracing the difference even though others cannot.
