Chorus: When we're feeling down and low
When our favorite word is "no"
Cause it points the way to go
Let's be bad
Who knows what will come tomorrow
Labor loose to sauce and sorrow
Here's some sugar you can borrow
Let's be bad
Don't wanna be boring
Our twenties are roaring
Let's manage the floor ring
Yeah drummer man
Do what you can
To wag the hoo will hit the fan
If you need some more enticing
Here's the girl with twice the spicing
We're the cake but she's the icing
Let's be bad
Let's be bad
Marilyn: If you say something is taboo
Well that's the thing I wanna do
Do it till we're black and blue
Let's be bad
Guns and gangsters suit me fine
Al Capone is a buddy of mine
He's my big shot valentine
Let's be bad
His spirits are saggin'
His feet are a draggin'
Fall off of that wagon
The piano hums to the bass and drums
And I'll be dancing when Hoover comes
Don't care if you've tied the knot
Most folks want what they ain't got
Melt the ice, some like it hot
Let's be bad
Here's my whistle make it wetter

Let me wear that scarlet letter
When I'm bad I'm even better
Let's be bad
Say bye bye propriety
No polite society
Give me notoriety
Let's be bad
Bring on the vices
Don't care what the price is
I'll add the right spices
When the stand up bass
Slaps you in the face
Well it ain't my husband I'll embrace
I can't see the use in waiting
Your lips are intoxicating
Do my hips need some translating
Let's be bad
If I drown in baths of gin
Notify my next of kin
They might grieve or might jump in
Let's be bad
Who wants plays and O'Neill dramas
Gershwin is the cat's pajamas
I'm the queen of the red hot mamas
Let's be bad
Each crook and G Man
Is poppin He-man
Just stick with me man
If he tried to juke
With my red hot yuke
And just like Judas once said to Luke
Here's the key for my ignition
Hit the gas to my transmission
When you hear the things I'm wishing
You won't offer opposition
Let's prohibit prohibition
Let's be bad
Some like it hot and that ain't bad
