Baby’s bad news
And she couldn’t be good
You know she’s got a crooked take on romance
Yeah she may take your diamond pendant
But she’ll pawn it when she gets the chance

If she leaves her man in misery
It ain’t enough for her to just leave you see
She’s got to rummage through his pockets
While he’s sleeping and steal his car keys

JJust a modicum
Of good good lovin
Sure ‘nuff makes the knot less stubborn
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So when she’s charmin ‘em
It’s just for the money
I smell a dirty thief awww honey
Bad, ooh, bad

Baby’s bad news
not just misunderstood
You know she always keeps a switchblade on hand
She keeps it her pocket book
And it ain’t there for opening tin cans

If she tried to be good just for the week
there’d be no way that she could do it you see
I’d bet you half a million dollars
That a day would put her on her knees
On her knees

JJust a modicum
Of good good lovin
Sure ‘nuff makes the knot less stubborn
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So when she’s charmin' ‘em
It’s all for the money
I smell a dirty thief awww honey
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad

Oh baby come on

Well you know your baby cheats
When she’s sneakin' round the streets
On the runaround

Someone’s tempting her with sweets
Sugar candy coated treats
When she’s on the town
On the runaround

Though the doors are double locked
She’s out trippin' ‘round the clock
w/ the midnight hounds

Someone put her on a leash
she’s already out of reach
‘cuz she’s on the town
on the runaround

JJJJJust a modicum
Of good good lovin'
Sure nuff makes the knot less stubborn
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yeah she’s just robbin’ ‘em
It’s all for the money
I caught a dirty thief, I saw you honey
Bad, oooh, bad, bad, bad bad bad

Oh baby come on
