They say I'm trouble
They say I'm bad
They say I'm evil
And that makes me glad

A dirty no-good
Down to the bone
Your worst nightmare
Can't take me home

So I've got some mischief
In my blood
Can you blame me
I never got no love

They think I'm callous
A low-life hood
I feel so useless
Misunderstood

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world

I'm rotten to the core, core
Rotten to the core
I'm rotten to the core, core
Who could ask for more
I'm nothing like the kid next, like the kid next door
I'm rotten to the, I'm rotten to the
I'm rotten to the core

Call me a schemer
Call me a freak
How can you say that
I'm just unique

What, me a traitor
Ain't got your back
Are we not friends
What's up with that

So I'm a misfit
So I'm a flirt
I broke your heart
I made you hurt

The past is past
Forgive, forget
The truth is
You ain't seen nothing yet

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world

I'm rotten to the core, core
Rotten to the core
I'm rotten to the core, core
Who could ask for more
I'm nothing like the kid next, like the kid next door
I'm rotten to the, I'm rotten to the
I'm rotten to the core
