ANNETTE HANSHAW lyrics - I Want To Be Bad

ANNETTE HANSHAW
"I Want To Be Bad"

To be or not to be?
That is not the question,
'Cause I decided long ago to be!
With me it's what to be,
Now making some suggestions,
Good or bad, which is the best for me?
When you're after
Fun and laughter,
This aggravates you!
Some reformers
Say a warmer
Climate awaits you!

If it's naughty to rouge your lips,
Shake your shoulders and shake your hips,
Then the answer is, "Yes, I'd wanna be bad!".

If it's naughty to vamp the men,
Sleep each morning till after ten,
Let a lady confess, "Yes, I wanna be bad!".

This thing of being a good little goody is all very well,
What can you do when you're loaded with plenty of health and vigour?

When you're learning what lips are for
And it's naughty to ask for more,
Let a lady confess, "I'd wanna be bad!".

Oh, if it's naughty to rouge your lips,
Shake your shoulders and shake your hips,
Then the answer is, "I wanna be bad!", boop-oop-a-doo!

And if it's naughty to vamp the men,
Sleep each morning till after ten,
Then the answer is, "Yes, I wanna be bad!".

Nobody cares just how blue and how lonesome I am,
If I have troubles and laugh like I don't give a damn, you'll credot!

If it's wrong to let someone take
Just a little kiss by mistake,
Let a lady confess, "I wanna be ba-a-ada-dada-da-da bad!".
