Evil, Nasty, and Bad


words and music by Kim Townsend

I was raised by loving parents who taught me to be good
to always do the right thing, behave as nice girls should
but now that I am older
I just can't help but wonder what I've missed
by acting straight and proper, genteel and mannerly
How often I have wondered what kind of girl I'd be
if I'd ignored the angel
rather than the devil that's inside of me


I wanna be evil, I wanna be bad
and let loose the inhibitions that I've had
I wanna be nasty, I wanna be wild
I wanna be vulgar, disgusting, and vile
I'm throwing caution to the wind
'cause my Polly Anna days are at an end
I wanna be evil, I wanna be nasty, I wanna be bad

I'm gonna go out swimming after eating a big meal
rip tags off pillows and mattresses like it was no big deal
I'll thumb my nose at fashion and dare to wear white pants past Labor Day

I may not floss tomorrow, I might now shave my pits
I may not use concealer to cover up my zits
I'll stuff a larger bra with socks
to make it look like I've got bigger chest dimensions

Perhaps I'll start out simple, and let the milk expire
or add two pounds of pressure to each of my car's tires
I'll eat crackers in my bed, maybe switch to INSTANT tea
No, I WON'T be kind, I WON'T re-wind... you'll hardly know it's me!


I wanna be rotten to the core and thoroughly ghastly
I wanna be evil, I wanna be nasty, I wanna be... BAD!
