Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad

I was bad born, I'd be badder when I die
I'm bad when I am sober, I'm badder when I'm high
I'm bad when I feel good, I'm bad when I'm blue
I'm bad to myself, so I'll be bad to you
So I'll be bad to you

I should've been good, look at the trouble I've had
I would if I could but I'm just bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad

I'm, bad and I'm alive, I'll be badder when I'm dead
I'm bad in my body, man, I'm badder in the head
I'm bad in the bed

Something wrong from the start
Guilt in my mind, evil in my heart
Evil in my heart

I don't need to be happy, I don't care if I'm sad
I don't care about nothin' 'cause I'm
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad

Don't lend me a dollar, don't lend me a dime
Don't lend me your wife, she'll have a good time
I'm bad in my car, I'm badder when I'm home
I'm bad when I'm with you and I'm badder all alone

I'm a low down worm, I'm a conquering worm
I'm a blood-suckin' worm, I'm a slime baitin' worm
I'll put you on the hook and I'll watch you squirm
I could never learn any young turk's new tricks
I could never learn not to kick against the pricks

Things go from bad to worse, sometimes it makes me
Glad that I was born under the curse of being
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad

Don't lend me a dollar, don't lend me dime
Don't lend me your wife, she'll have a good time
Don't lend me a twenty, don't lend me a ten
If you lend me a hundred, you'll never see me again

What I would do? These are the very things I don't do
And what I would not do? Those are the things that I do
Who shall deliver from this body of death
It's not Mohammad and it's not Seth

I tried to be happy but it only made me sad
I wanted to be good but I'm just
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad

Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad
