Helen Kane

Helen Kane (August 4, 1904, – September 26, 1966) was an American popular singer; her signature song was "I Wanna Be Loved By You". Kane's voice and appearance were a likely source for Fleischer Studios animator Grim Natwick when creating Betty Boop, although It-girl Clara Bow is another possible influence. more »

To be or not to be 
That is not the question! 
I decided long ago to be! 
With me, it's what to be
Now, make me 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
Let a lady confess, I want to be bad! 

If it's naughty to vamp the men
Sleep each morning till after ten
Then the answer is yes, I want to 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 vigor

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

Oh, if it's naughty to rouge your lips
Shake your shoulders and shake your hips 
Then, let a lady confess, I want to be bad! 
Boop-boop-a-doop! 

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

Nobody cares just how blue and how lonesome I am! 
If I have troubles and laugh, why they don't give a damsel credit

If it's wrong to let someone take
Just a little kiss by mistake
Let a lady confess, I want to be ba-da-da-da-da-da 
Bad!
