Song Lyrics:
I'm Bad
(Words and music by Ellas McDaniel)

I spell B-A-D,
I'm bad,
That mean don't mess with me

Now all you women,
Remember when I was twenty-one?
That was a year baby,
That I had lots of fun,
But a year has gone by,
I'm now twenty-two,
I can eat nails honey,
And drink gunpowder soup

I spell B-A-D,
I'm bad,
Don't mess with me

Now honey, you better tell your husband,
For sneakin' peakin' at me,
He wanna find out the man,
That I'm supposed to be,
Now I'll make sure the drill's runnin',
And mess up his face,
I'll even try to snatch both,
His legs outta place


One more question, honey,
Before I start to stutter,
I can even tell you why,
White milk make yellow butter

I'm B-A-D,

You asked me, honey,
What it was all about,
You even asked me where the light went,
When it went out

I'm B-A-D,
I'm bad,
Don't mess with me

I knew I'd run into this one eventually. Differing lyric opinions, actual lyrics far from easy to locate, Cap'n Wayne's never played it and I don't know the song myself- not word for word, anyway. It's not in my collection and I haven't heard it anytime recently.

The policy in these situations is to input whichever lines make
more sense until more info can be found. And there, it's done.

Must admit, I've never been a big fan of Bo myself. But a few of you must be, so how about it? Do you know the correct lyrics for the lines in question?

'Now I'll miss you shootin' real, honey,' ??

HA! Nope!, That's not right.
Doesn't even make sense.

It's - 'I'll make sure the drill's runnin'
And mess up his face

also 'He wanna fight off the man (as in I'M A MAN')
That I'm the s'posed to be

PS You know about copyrighted lyrics and how they very rarely match the recording, especially when 'other people' typed them out for the artist.
Not all, but many.
Oh well, probably nobody cares about these trivial things of life. I do.
Really Nice site!
