Born This Way track listing

"Bad Kids" is a song by Lady Gaga off Born This Way. The song title was revealed through an interview in Vogue magazine. The song was registered on Gaga's BMI on May 18, 2011.

Background

Lady Gaga tweeted that the song was inspired by the many stories of Little Monsters that she had heard while on The Monster Ball Tour, and that the song was a tribute to their stories.[1]

According to fans who attended the listening session in France, the missing verse featured in the booklet was sung during the song. When asked about this particular part, Gaga replied that she wants to perform the extended version live during The Born This Way Ball Tour and included the lyrics in the booklet so the fans can sing along, however, the extended version was never performed.

Cuff me up sir I'm mad
At the relationshop I got
Between my ass and your badge
I smoke, but I'm not into candy no-class
Though there might be some illegal shit

In my meat dress, I've got guns,
up under my thumbs
Manicure is slick
You mad that my tips longer than your *click*?

Just a freedom hussy
Rebel fashion junkie
And I wanna serve my country
In the best way that I could be

So don't ask, 'cause I'll tell
you I'm free, while you dwell
Throw your hands up in the crowd
Cause if you're bad kid and you're proud

Lyrics

We don’t care what people say,
We know the truth.
Enough is enough with this horse shit.
I am not a freak I was born with my free gun,
Don’t tell me I’m less than my freedom.

I’m a bitch, I’m a loser baby maybe I should quit.
I’m a jerk, wish I had the money but I can’t find work.
I’m a brat, I’m a selfish punk, I really should be smacked.
My parents tried untill they got divorced.
‘Cause I ruined their lives.

I’m a bad kid,
And I will survive.
Oh I’m a bad kid,
Don’t know wrong from right. (know wrong from right)
I’m a bad kid and this is my life.
One of the bad kids,
Don’t know wrong from right.
(This is my life)

Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.
Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby,
A bad kid baby,
Don’t be insecure.

I’m a twit, degenerate, young rebel and I’m proud of it.
Pump your fist, you would rather mess up than put up with this.
I’m a nerd, I chew gum and smoke in your face. I’m absurd.
I’m so bad and I don’t give a damn,
I love it when you’re mad,
When you’re mad,
When you’re mad.

I’m a bad kid,
And I will survive.
Oh I’m a bad kid,
Don’t know wrong from right. (know wrong from right)
I’m a bad kid and this is my life.
One of the bad kids,
Don’t know wrong from right.
(This is my life)

Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.
Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby,
A bad kid baby,
Don’t be insecure.

I’m not that typical, baby.
I’m a bad kid like my mom and dad made me.
I’m not that cool and you hate me,
I’m a bad kid that's the way that they made me.
I’m a bad kid, I’m disastrous,
Give me your money or I’ll hold my breath.

I’m a bad kid and I will survive.
One of the bad kids,
Don’t know wrong from right.

Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.
Don’t be insecure,
If your heart is pure.
You’re still good to me if you’re a bad kid baby.

A bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby.
A bad kid baby.
