Bad Lyrics

[Verse 1: Michael Jackson]
Ah, your butt is mine, gone tell you right, ah
Just show your face in broad daylight, ah
I'm telling you on who I feel, ah
Gonna hurt your mind, don't shoot to kill
Shamone, ah, shamone
Lay it on me, ah, alright
Ah, I'm giving you on count to three, ah
Just show your stuff or let it be, ah
I'm telling you, just watch your mouth, ah
I know your game, hah, what you're about, cha, ah

[Pre-Chorus: Michael Jackson]
Well, they say the sky's the limit
And to me, that's really true, ah
But my friend, you have seen nothing
Just wait 'til I get through

[Chorus: Michael Jackson]
Because I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone, ah
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad (Bad, bad)
You know it, ah (Really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone (Bad, bad)
You know (Really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who's bad?

[Verse 2: Michael Jackson]
Ah, ah, the word is out, ah, you're doing it wrong, ah
Gone lock you up before too long, ah
Your lying eyes gone tell you right, ah
So listen up, ah, don't make a fight, ah
Your talk is cheap, you're not a man, ah
You're throwing stones to hide your hands

[Pre-Chorus: Michael Jackson]
Well, they say the sky's the limit
And to me, that's really true, ah
But my friend, you have seen nothing
Just wait 'til I get through

[Chorus: Michael Jackson]
Because I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone, ah
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad (Bad, bad)
You know it, ah (Really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad, you know it (Bad, bad)
You know (Really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again
Who's bad?

[Verse 3: Michael Jackson]
Ah, we can change the world tomorrow
This could be a better place, ah
If you don't like what I'm saying
Then won't you slap my face?

[Chorus: Michael Jackson]
Because I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone, ah
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad (Bad, bad)
You know it, ah (Really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad (Bad, bad)
You know it, you know (Really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now (Hoo, hoo)
Just to tell you once again (Hoo)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad, shamone, ah
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad (Bad, bad)
You know it, you know it (Really, really bad)
You know, you know (Bad, bad)
You know, shamone (Really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
Just to tell you once again
You know I'm smooth, I'm bad, you know it

You know I'm bad, I'm bad, ah
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
You know, you know, you know it, shamone
(Bad, bad, really, really bad)
Come on (Really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now (Hoo)
Just to tell you once again
You know I'm bad, I'm bad, you know it
