"Bad kids" as written by Cole Alexander, Joseph Bradley, Ian St. Pe Brown and Jared Swilley....
Bad kids all my friends are bad kids
Product of no dad kids
Kids like you and me

Bad kids ain't no college grad kids
Livin life out on the skids
Kids like you and me

In class
We are a minority
Got no
Respect for authority
And won't
Play well with others
And steal
From all your mothers
They'll try
To give us pills
Oh wait
Give us all the pills
Go cry
Mom I gotta go to court
Dad won't
Pay his child support

Well you gotta understand
We only do these things because all we are is

Bad kids all my friends are bad kids
Product of no dad kids
Kids like you and me

Bad kids ain't no college grad kids
Livin life out on the skids
Kids like you and me

At home
He throws a hissy fit
Time out
He doesn't give a shit
Got drunk
Off all of grandmas schnaps
Got caught
Runnin from the cops
Toilet
Paper on the yard
Six f's
On my report card
Smoke cigs
In the bathroom stall
Spray paint
Penis on the wall

Well you gotta understand
We only do these things because all we are is

Bad kids all my friends are bad kids
Product of no dad kids
Kids like you and me

Bad kids ain't no college grad kids
Livin' life out on the skids
Kids like you and me

    General Commentthere is always "hidden" meaning, numbnuts. there is actually a great deal of it being conjured in every black lips song. here's a hint: what does the label 'bad kid' do to a child?

    General Commentlawnwrangler,

    i wouldn't be surprised if there was some greater meaning to this song, but how is that anything but wild conjecture on your part?

    General Commentthis song is awsome.
    I highly doubt that it has any hidden meaning behind it.

    General Commentfaggot kids (as a parody of bigotry) would be pretty funny
    "faggots all my friends are faggots
    product of horny preist kids
    gays like you and me"

    General CommentIt's pretty straightforward, but I read somewhere that it was about one of the band members' experiences as a child in a "bad kid" school, or center.

    And since Joe, the drummer, sings it, it's probably his.

    General CommentI love this song. It should be the "i don't give a shit" anthem.

    General Commenti kinda thought it was about how no one really gives the "bad kids" in school much thought, just ignore them and push them off to the side as people who aren't going anywhere and don't care about anything or anyone. but they're people too!
