Now, on the day I was born

The nurses all gathered round

And they gazed in wild wonder

At the joy they had found

The head nurse spoke up

Said leave this one alone

She could tell right away

That I was bad to the bone

Bad to the bone

B- B-B-B-B-Bad

Bad to the bone

I broke 1,000 hearts

Before I met you

lll break 1,000 more, baby

Before I am through

I want to be yours, pretty baby

Yours, and yours alone

lm here to tell you, honey

That lm bad to the bone

Bad to the bone

B- B-B-B-B-Bad

Bad to the bone

lm a-gonna tell you

how its gonna be

You gonna give

your love to me

My love is bigger

than the Cadillac

After I show you lll be back

Your love for me

has got to be real

Holy sh*t!

Come on, Arnie.
