Mama, remember how you warned me that he would only hurt me?
Remember how I didn't listen then, wasn't listening?
Mama, you said I shouldn't see him, said I didn't need him
Said, "A boy like that is gonna take your heart just to break your heart"
Told me from the start, he would break my heart

And I guess I was a bad girl
But you just never understood
How the lovin' of that bad boy
Made your bad girl feel so good

I'd sneak out my window we'd meet in the night
Deep in the darkness he knew how to love me so right
Mama, ooh, he was a wild one and, ooh, I was a child once
But I will never be a child again after lovin' him oh, not after lovin' him

Mama, I never knew a boy's touch
Could ever teach me so much
All those nights you didn't understand
I was in good hands

Mama, if I would have listened
Ooh, the kissin' I'd be missin'
I tell you, you were wrong as you could be
He's still here with me

Sneakin' out my window we meet in the night
Deep in the darkness he knows how to love me so right
Mama ooh, that boy's touch, need it so much

Mama ooh, that wild one, need to feel him
Mama ooh, that bad boy, he gives me such joy
Mama, I'm such a bad girl, he gives me such joy
