"Grimly Fiendish" as written by Clive Thomas Jackson, Roman Jug, Bryn Merrick, Christopher John Millar and David Vanian....
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
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
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

Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy
Bad lad bad boy

    General Commenttry cheesy pop with a hint of goth

    Theres a version of this called "Bad Trip Mix"
    Its actually pretty weird once your use to the basic version, lots of voice overdubs and noises. almost scary

    General CommentI love this song, I have to say I think it's one of my favourite Damned songs, but I'm not as keen on the "bad trip mix" or whatever it's called. Something of that nature anyway.
