Rated X Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Well, if you been a married woman
And things didn't seem to work out
Divorce is the key to bein' loose and free
But you're gonna be talked about

Everybody knows that you've loved once
They think you'll love again
You can't have a male friend when you're a has-been
Of a woman, you're rated X

And if you're rated X, you're some kind of goal
That even man turned civil try to make
But I think it's wrong to judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake

So, if your best friend's husband says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would and he would if he could
And he will if you're rated X

Well, nobody knows where you're goin'
But they sure know where you've been
All their thinkin' of is your experience of love
Well, their minds fill up with sin

The women all look at you like you're bad
The men all hope you are
But if you go too far you're gonna wear
The scar of a woman rated X

And if you're rated X, you're some kind of goal
That even man turned civil try to make
But I think it's wrong to judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake

So, if your best friend's husband says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would and he would if he could
And he will if you're rated X

Yeah, us women don't have a chance
'Cause if you've been married
You can't have no fun at all
You're rated X

No matter what they do, they're gonna talk about you
Don't know what to think about it
Just let 'em talk
Just let 'em talk, Meg
