Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Boy, you know that you drive me crazy
But it's one of the things I like
'Cause I know when you need it, baby
That I got that, ooh-ooh
Let 'em keep, let 'em keep on talkin'
But it don't matter what they say
'Cause you know when you hear me knockin'
Gonna get that, ooh-ooh

[Pre-Chorus]
I've been doing stupid things
Wilder than I've ever been
You've become my favorite sin
So, let 'em keep, let 'em keep on talkin'
That's right

[Chorus]
We got that hood love
We got that good love
We got that hot love
We got that "I don't give a what" love
We got that one life
Give me that all night
We got that Bonnie and Clyde love
They say it's wrong, but that's the way you turn me on
We got that hood love
We got that good love
Make me make bad
Boy, you make me make bad decisions
Bad, boy, you make me make bad decisions

[Verse 2]
But they ain't gonna understand it
Understand what I see in you
They don't know when you touch my body
That I see the truth
Let 'em keep, let 'em keep on talkin'
'Cause I know that I got someone
Anytime that I need some danger
Gonna get that, ooh-ooh

[Pre-Chorus]
I've been doing stupid things (Hey)
Wilder than I've ever been (Hey-ey)
You've become my favorite sin
So (So), let 'em keep, let 'em keep on talkin'
That's right

[Chorus]
We got that hood love
We got that good love
We got that hot love
We got that "I don't give a what" love
We got that one life
Give me that all night
We got that Bonnie and Clyde love
They say it's wrong (They say it's wrong), but that's the way you turn me on (Turn me on, boy)
We got that hood love
We got that good love
Make me make (Make me make) bad
Boy, you make me make bad decisions (Boy you make me)
Bad (Bad), boy, you make me make bad decisions
(Oh, babe)
(Oh, yeah)

[Bridge]
Don't you know I ain't fuckin' with them good boys?
Know you love me like ain't nobody could, boy
If you want it, boy, you've got it
Ain't you ever seen a princess be a bad bitch?

[Chorus]
We got that hood love (We got that hood love)
We got that good love
We got that hot love
We got that "I don't give a what" love ("I don't give a what" love)
We got that one life
Give me that all night (Give me that all night)
We got that Bonnie and Clyde love
They say it's wrong (That's so true), but that's the way you turn me on (You turn me on, boy)
We got that hood love
We got that good love
Make me make (Make me make) bad
Boy, you make me make bad decisions (Bad decisions)
Bad (Oooooh), boy, you make me make bad decisions

[Outro]
Bad (Oh, yeah), boy, you make me make bad decisions (Bad decisions)
Bad (Boy, you make me), boy, you make me make bad decisions

[Verse 1]

'Cause you know when you hear me knockin'
Gonna get that, ooh-ooh

[Pre-Chorus]

You've become my favorite sin
So, let 'em keep, let 'em keep on talkin'
That's right

[Chorus]
We got that hood love
We got that good love
We got that hot love

If you want it, boy, you've got it
Ain't you ever seen a princess be a bad b****?
