Some other versions of "Bad Boy"


A bad little kid
Moved into my neighborhood
(He's a bad boy.)
He won't do nothin' right
His report car' don't look so good
(He's a bad boy.)
He don't wanna go to school
An' learn to read an' write
(He's a bad boy.)
He jes' a-sits aroun' the house
An' plays that rock 'n' roll music all night
(He's a bad boy.)
He puts thumbtacks in his teacher's chair
Put chew'n gum in a li'l girl's hair

Now Junior, behave yourself!

He buy every rock 'n' roll book
On the magazine stan'
(He's a bad boy.)
Every dime that he get

Whoo! He's off to the juke box, man
(He's a bad boy.)
He worries his a-teacher
Till at night she's a-ready to poop
(He's a bad boy.)
A-rockin' 'n' a-rollin'
Spinnin' in a hoola hoop
This rock 'n' roll has gotta stop
Junior's head is hard as rock

Now Junior, behave yourself, ow!


Gonna tell your mamma
You'd better do what she said
(Bad boy.)
Go to the barber shop
An' get that hair cut off your head
(Bad boy.)
He took your pet canary
An' he fed it to the neighboor's cat
(He's a bad boy.)
He gave the cocker spaniel a bath
In his mother's laundromat
(He's a bad boy.)
This minor mess has gotta stop
Junior's head is hard as rock

Now Junior, behave yourself
