Bad Like Me

You wonder why your brothers
Ain't half as bad as you
They're bringing home the grades
You're breaking all the rules
You got midnight on your mind
And diesel in your veins
It's cause I'm your real daddy
Your mother's got
something to explain

Now your in trouble with the law
Everybody knows your name
Driving everybody crazy
But they can't stay away
You're better looking
than your father
You're twice the trouble too
It's cause I'm your real daddy
Your mother ain't been
straight with you

I know you're the black sheep
But that ain't always bad
With low expectations
There's freedom to be had
So ride on to midnight
Don't look back to see
Cause I'm you're real daddy
That's why you're bad like me.
