I've been a bad boy, I've been long gone
I've been out there, I never phone home
I never gave you not one little clue where I'd been
I've been a bad boy again

I got a way of fallin' in love
With angels that don't shove
You into thinkin' that you are committing a sin
I've been a bad boy again

I've been a bad boy again
Now I've been a bad boy again
And all the trouble that I'm in
Makes me a bad boy again

I've been a bad boy again
Now I've been a bad boy again
And all the trouble that I'm in
Makes me a bad boy again

I must have walked 'round in a real fog
I was your best friend, now I'm a real dog
I never thought that now would ever catch up with then
I've been a bad boy again

I've been a bad boy, I sung a wrong song
I took a left turn, I stayed too long
As you were thinkin' that I wasn't just like all other men
I've been a bad boy again

I've been a bad boy again
I've been a bad boy again
And all the trouble that I'm in
Makes me a bad boy again

I've been a bad boy again
I've been a bad boy again
And all the trouble that I'm in
Makes me a bad boy again
