Lyrics

Initiate
Cherry cherry boom boom
Lady Gaga
I like it rough

Your love is nothing I can't fight
Can't sleep with the man who dims my shine

I'm in the bedroom (bedroom)
with tissues and when
I know you're outside banging
Then I won't let you in
'Cause it's a hard life
With love in the world
And I'm a hard girl
Loving me's like chewing on pearls

You got me wondering why I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough
You got me wondering why I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough

Won't go without my fix tonight
It's a little too rough (a little too rough)
Prom girl wipes her tears with silver lines
And she can't get enough

I'm in the bedroom (bedroom)
with tissues and when
I know you're outside banging
Then I won't let you in
'Cause it's a hard life (hard life)
With love in the world
And I'm a hard girl
Loving me's like straightening curls

You got me wondering why I (You got me)
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough
You got me wondering why I (Ohh, yeah)
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough

I'm shiny and I know it
Don't know why you wanna blow it
Need a man who likes it rough
Likes it rough
Likes it rough (Baby likes it rough)

I'm shiny and I know it
Don't know why you wanna blow it
Need a man who likes it rough
Likes it rough
Likes it rough (Baby likes it rough)

Is it 'cause you don't mean it
Or because I don't feel it
Unless it's rough (Baby Likes It rough)

Is it 'cos you don't mean it
Or because I don't feel it
Unless it's rough

Lady Gaga

You got me wondering why I
(You got, yeah yeah you got me, ohh wondering why)
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough
You got me wondering why I (Ohh ohh yeah)
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I (Ohh wondering why)
I like it rough

You got me wondering why I (Yeah yeah you got me)
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I (Ohh wondering why)
I like it rough
You got me wondering why I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough, I
I like it rough
