Lyrics

Bad Girl Ballad

Written By: Jenn Ladd & Paul Haggis

You should be a sailor
You sailed right past me
I should have caught you
With my barbed misery

Would have broken your heart
Just cause I could
I know it sounds harsh
I'm that kind of fool

You could be a cowboy
The way you lassoed me
I'm your hog-tied filly
Why won't you ride me

Guess you're too clever
You got a degree
I'm just street-schooled
But at least I am free

I talk tough like a showgirl
Ride rough like a cowgirl
Got hung in a man's world
Yeah I'm just a bad girl

You're probably a pilot
Fly high over danger
The smell of your leathers
I think you're my angel

But I'm just your devil
Waifish and feral
Just want to bite you
While you sing a carol

You must be a muso
With a song so pretty
I lock onto you
My panties drop merrily

That's just too easy
I was hoping for more
Still that won't stop me
From stealing your car

I talk tough like a showgirl
Ride rough like a cowgirl
Got hung in a man's world
Yeah I'm just a bad girl

You walk like a blue suit
All stiff and lawyery
Lunch at Hy's Steak House
In downtown Calgary

I blame the waitress
It's not your fault
You're drunk before court
She used too much celery salt

Are you really a reverend
Adored and revered
Is all that swelling
Just what you feared

Don't you go thinking
I'm rough and I'm guileless
There's more where you came from
and that's f***ing righteous

I talk tough like a showgirl
Ride rough like a cowgirl
Got hung in a man's world
Yeah I'm just a bad girl

You look like a lover
Of the right kind of girl
We know that's not me
Still I can make your toes curl

Stay still one moment
While I tie you down
With my old guitar strings
Ok go: try to run

Now you're my prisoner
Though from my heart you've been freed
I'm sorry I hurt you
You're so cute when you bleed

I gotta go now
Go find me another
Sweet smelling man
One with a brother

I talk tough like a showgirl
Ride rough like a cowgirl
Got hung in a man's world
Yeah I'm just a bad girl
