"Bad" as written by Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall and Martin Johnson....
It feels just like it was yesterday
We were in love, why's it falling apart
I've never been one to walk away
But I've had enough and it's breaking my heart

'Cause you love me just the way that you should
It's nothing that you do, no it's nothing you say
Yeah baby, I know that you're good
But I don't want a good girl no, not today

'Cause I want it bad, I want a bad girl, baby, bad
I want a love that's crazy, yeah
I want a bad girl, baby, bad, I want it bad

I want a girl who stays out too late
And when I call, she doesn't answer the phone
Oh, I want a girl who likes it her way
And through it all, I know I'll end up alone

Yeah yeah, you love me just the way that you should
It's nothing that you do, no no, it's nothing you say
Oh pretty baby, I know that you're good
But I don't want a good girl, no not today, mm

'Cause I want it bad I want a bad girl, baby, bad
I want a love that's crazy, yeah
I wanna fight, I wanna rock and roll and party all night
Yeah, I want it bad, I want a bad girl, baby, bad, I want it bad

I'm getting sick of predictable, tired of acting logical
Oh yeah, I gotta shake it up tonight
Yeah girl I want something physical
Not something invisible, oh yeah
I'm tired of being good, let's be bad

I want a bad girl baby, bad
And I want a love that's crazy, yeah
I want a bad girl, baby, bad
I want a love that's crazy, yeah
I wanna fight, I wanna rock and roll and party all night
Yeah, I want it bad, I want a bad girl, baby, bad
I want a love that's crazy, yeah
I wanna fight, I wanna rock and roll and party all night
Yeah, I want it bad

    General CommentIt's all about balance, sometimes nice is fantastic, other times a partner in crime is exactly what you need/want.

    My OpinionI LOVE this song!

    This song itself is so good, but so bad lol....that was cheesy as fuck.

    I love it though cause the protagonist is just tired of being with a good girl and even though she is amazing and good for him, its not what he wants right now. He wants to go on his primal urge and just have fun with a girl. Do something unpredictable and live out his youth. He doesn't want to stay in all night and eat chinese food and watch a movie with the good girl. He wants to go have fun, party all night, and have sex with her all night. He wants YOUTH! He wants fun and vitality. He doesn't want to be an old man.

    He is still young and is able to date these bad girls that he know will break his heart and he is totally okay with that.

    Honestly, I totally get it. I was with a girl that just made me feel like we were a married old couple a year into our relationship. I'm 21 and as much as I loved her, I wanted to go out to a bar or do something crazy. I want to live out my youth while I still can before I have to sit on the couch without a choice.

    Also...the music video is so heart breaking lol. Like seriously....it broke my heart haha

    My OpinionIn my personal opinion, this song, while it has a great beat, tempo, etc. it is a completely deplorable song for girls to listen to. it's basically saying guys don't want to have someone who treats them right. they want someone who doesn't call when she's late, who doesn't have any kind of respect for themselves or the person they're with.. basically be exactly what a lot of guys are to a lot of girls.. DISRESPECTFUL. yeah.. not a fan of this song.
