I've posed for pictures with Iv'ry Soap
I've petted stray dogs, and shied clear of dope
My smile is brilliant, my glance is tender
But I'm noted most for my unspoiled gender

I've been made Miss Reingold, though I never touch beer
And I'm the person to whom they say, "You're sweet, my dear,"
The only etchings I've seen have been behind glass
And the closest I've been to a bar is at ballet class

Prim and proper, the girl who's never been cased
I'm tired of being pure and not chased
Like something that seeks it's level
I want to go to the devil

I want to be evil, I want to spit tacks
I want to be evil and cheat at jacks
I want to be wicked, I want to tell lies
I want to be mean and throw mud pies

I want to wake up in the morning
With that dark brown taste
I want to see some dissipation in my face
I want to be evil, I want to be mad
But more than that, I want to be bad

I want to be evil and trump an ace
Just to see my partner's face
I want to be nasty, I want to be cruel
I want to be daring, I want to shoot pool

And in the theater, I want to change my seat
Just so I can step on everybody's feet

I want to be evil, I want to hurt flies
I want to sing songs like the guy who cries
I want to be horrid, I want to drink booze
And whatever I've got, I'm eager to lose

I want to be evil, little evil me
Just as mean and evil as I can be!
