"Bad Boyfriend" as written by Douglas Elwin Erickson, Shirley Ann Manson, Steve W. Marker and Bryan David Vig....
I´ve got a fever
Come check it and see
There´s something burning and rolling in me
We may not last but we´ll have fun till it ends
Come on baby be my bad boyfriend

I want to hear you call out my name
I want to see you burn up in flames
Keep you on ice so I can show all my friends
Come on baby be my bad boyfriend

So ripe so sweet come suck it and see
But watch out daddy I sting like a bee
I know some tricks I swear will give you the bends
Come on baby be my bad boyfriend

My fever´s rising you ran into luck
Say what sugar ?
You want to get what?
I´m want to give you one hundred and ten
Come on baby be my bad boyfriend

It´s wild the way you tease me
It´s wild the way you free me
It´s wild the way you reach me
Wrapped me up in your wire from the start

You´ve got the women waiting in line
I´m not asking you to make up your mind
But I can make you happy at least now and then
I´ve got something special for my bad boyfriend

If you can´t love me honey go on just pretend
I´ve saved something special for the very end
If you can´t love me honey go on just pretend
Come on baby be my bad boyfriend

    General Commentto me this song kind of sounds like its about a girl who wants to have a relationship with this one guy, but he's only attracted to her sexually and not emotionally. the girl knows this too, but she's willing to settle for a friends with benefits relationship instead of an actual boyfriend/grirlfriend realtionship.

    General CommentThis specific part:
    "Say what, sugar, you wanna get what?
    I want to give you 110"

    Does it mean like he wants to get a 69 with her but she says she wants to do it even better, i.e. 110 and not just 69...hehehe does it make sense?

    General Commentto me, this song is about a younger (high school) girl wanting an older (more experienced... bad) boyfriend that she can show off to all of her friends. she doesnt really want him for who he is, but what he represents and the fact that he can give her experience.

    General CommentI think its about a relationship that she knows doesn't mean anything, but she's just gonna ride it to the end. i'm in this exact spot right now--i'm going out with a Serial Dater, and i know it doesnt mean anything but i figure what the hell.
