Bad Boys  – Peter Criss
(Criss, Jim Roberge)

From: Let me Rock You (Released May 1982)

I met a lady dressed in black
She sure looked strange to me
I said, baby where’s a hot place to go
She said Ruby‘s ain’t for me
I said, mama I can go anywhere I please
I been to places that would bring the devil to his
knees

She just looked at me and said
Don’t go where the bad boys go
If you can’t fight
Don’t go where the bad boys go
When it’s late night

She looked at me with her coal black eyes
As she took me by the hand
She said Ruby’s just ain’t the place
You see it’s more like another land

And as we stood outside the door
You could smell it in the air
You could hear the screams and feel the heat
But I really didn’t care

She kept telling me
Don’t go where the bad boys go
If you can’t fight
Don’t go where the bad boys go
When it’s late night

[Solo]

And as she pushed me through the door
The place was bright with flames
She said I tried to warn you boy
Cause Ruby is my name

I should have listened when she said
Don’t go where the bad boys go
If you can’t fight
Don’t go where the bad boys go
When it’s late night

Don’t go where the bad boys go
If you can’t fight
Don’t go where the bad boys go
When it’s late night
I don’t wanna hear it again

Don’t go where the bad boys go
If you can’t fight
Don’t go where the bad boys go
When it’s late night

Bad Boys – Great White
(M. Kendall, J. Russell, G. Holland, L. Black, A. Niven)

From “Great White” – 1984

Young boy, a hard, gin, ride
On the loose again
Live fast to play both sides
I’m out to win

I’m no loser
I have nothing to lose
My life ain’t easy
But it’s mine to use

Raised on the streets
I know
To get what you want
You gotta take control

I’m on the run, bad boys
I’m on the loose, bad boys

I’m on my way, I’ve paid my dues
Pull of the trigger, time starts to crawl
Two lives have ended
When the hammer falls

Raised on the streets
I know
To get what you want
You gotta take control

The lost years were long
Each night was cold
The way I felt
Feel the snow

I’ve done my time
Paid what I owed
Don’t want those walls
Of steel and stone

I put myself behind the wall
Now that I’m back, ain’t gonna fall

Jack Russell – lead and backing vocals
Mark Kendall – guitar, backing vocals
Lorne Black – bass
Gary Holland – drums, backing vocals

Bad Boys – McAuley Schenker Group
(McAuley, Schenker)

From “Save Your Self” – Released October 10, 1989

Never Enough, never enough ,
It’s too little for me
Cry wolf, cry cry wolf,
The black sheep of the family
Give an inch, give an inch,
Always taking a mile
Lie down with the push and shove
Yeah I can make you smile

Bad boys
Never seem to care about anything
Bad boys
You don’t wanna mess around
Bad boys
Playin’ with the girls havin’ lots of fun
Bad boys
We really don’t care

It’s really tough, really tough
When you ain’t got no money
Livin’ rough is heavy stuff
Where ya gonna get your milk and honey
I wanna be in the movies
See myself on the silver screen
Romeo playin’ all those parts
In positions you ain’t never seen

Bad boys
Never seem to care about anything
Bad boys
You don’t wanna mess around
Bad boys
Playin’ with the girls havin’ lots of fun
Bad boys
We really don’t care

The kinda things we like to do
You don’t wanna know if it’s good for you
We’re so bad through and through
The same could happen
It’s gonna happen to you
New York, New York city
My kinda town
But L.A. on a sunny day, wow!
When you’ve got the roof down
There’s blonde hair everywhere
They sure have got the style
The bad boys taken everythin’
Drivin’ everybody wild

Bad boys
Never seem to care about anything
Bad boys
You don’t wanna mess around
Bad boys
Playin’ with the girls havin’ lots of fun
Bad boys
We really don’t care

Bad Boys – Whitesnake
(David Coverdale,John Sykes)

From “Whitesnake” – Released 7 April 1987

I know you, you know me
I’m the black sheep of the family
I’m in an’ out of trouble
I’m the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down…I steal around,
like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day
Bad Boys Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad Boys
Getting wild in the street, wild in the city

I see you, you see me
Just a back street boy in society
With high-heeled women full of
champagne an’ lies
Getting wild in the street
Til the hot sunrise
Stealing ’round like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day
Bad Boys Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad Boys
Getting wild in the street
Wild in the city
Wild in the city
Wild in the city
Bad, bad Boys
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad Boys Getting wild in the street
Wild in the city

I know you, you know me
I’m the black sheep of the family
I’m in an’ out of trouble
I’m the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down…I don’t care what the people think
I can’t hear what the people say
I steal around like a thief in the night
Dancing ’til the break of day
Bad, bad Boys Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad Boys
Getting wild in the street
Wild in the city
