Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
You've got your mother in a whirl
Hey babe, your hair's alright
You like me, and I like it all
You love bands when they're playing hard
They put you down, they say I'm wrong

Rebel Rebel, your face is a mess
Hot tramp, I love you so!
Don't ya?

Not sure if you're a boy or a girl
Hey babe, let's stay out tonight
We like dancing and we look divine
You want more and you want it fast
You tacky thing, you put them on
Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?

Doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo
Rebel Rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel Rebel, how could they know?

You can't get enough, but enough ain't the test
You got your cue line and a handful of ludes
And I love your dress
Because your face is a mess
I said, how could they know?
So what you wanna know
Where'd you wanna go?
'Cause you've torn your dress
Ooo, your face is a mess
Eh, eh, how could they know?
