Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
White shirt now red, my bloody nose
Sleepin', you're on your tippy toes
Creepin' around like no one knows
Think you're so criminal
Bruises on both my knees for you
Don't say thank you or please
I do what I want when I'm wanting to
My soul? So cynical

[Chorus]
So you're a tough guy
Like it really rough guy
Just can't get enough guy
Chest always so puffed guy
I'm that bad type
Make your mama sad type
Make your girlfriend mad tight
Might seduce your dad type
I'm the bad guy, duh

[Post-Chorus]
I'm the bad guy

[Verse 2]
I like it when you take control
Even if you know that you don't
Own me, I'll let you play the role
I'll be your animal
My mommy likes to sing along with me
But she won't sing this song
If she reads all the lyrics
She'll pity the men I know

[Chorus]
So you're a tough guy
Like it really rough guy
Just can't get enough guy
Chest always so puffed guy
I'm that bad type
Make your mama sad type
Make your girlfriend mad tight
Might seduce your dad type
I'm the bad guy, duh

[Post-Chorus]
I'm the bad guy, duh
I'm only good at being bad, bad

[Interlude]
I like when you get mad
I guess I'm pretty glad that you're alone
You said she's scared of me?
I mean, I don't see what she sees
But maybe it's 'cause I'm wearing your cologne

[Outro]
I'm a bad guy
I-I'm a bad guy
Bad guy, bad guy
I'm a bad

[Intro: Billie Eilish & Justin Bieber]
Hmm, da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da, hmm
Da-da-da-hmm (Yeah, yeah)
Oh, ah

[Verse 1: Billie Eilish]
White shirt now red, my bloody nose
Sleepin', you're on your tippy toes
Creepin' around like no one knows
Think you're so criminal
Bruises on both my knees for you
Don't say thank you or please
I do what I want when I'm wanting to
My soul? So cynical

[Chorus: Billie Eilish]
So you're a tough guy
Like it really rough guy
Just can't get enough guy
Chest always so puffed guy
I'm that bad type
Make your mama sad type
Make your girlfriend mad tight
Might seduce your dad type
I'm the bad guy, duh

[Post-Chorus: Billie Eilish]
I'm the bad guy

[Verse 2: Justin Bieber]
Gold teeth, my neck, my wrist is froze (so icy)
I got more ice than, than the snow
That guy, don't act like you don't know
That guy, so critical (skrrt)
Tattoos on both my sleeves
Yeah, I don't sleep, please don't wake me
Loosen up my tie up so I can breathe
It ain't political, oh no (uh-uh)

[Chorus: Justin Bieber]
Yeah, I'm a bad guy
Ain't no holdin' back guy
Come off like I'm mad guy
Always got your back guy
Yeah, I'm the real type
Keep you full of thrills type
Show you what it feels like
Got an open invite

[Post-Chorus: Justin Bieber & Billie Eilish]
I'm the bad guy, woah (duh)
I'm the bad guy, duh
I'm only good at being bad, bad

[Interlude: Billie Eilish (Justin Bieber)]
(Ahh)
(Ah)
I like when you get mad
I guess I'm pretty glad that you're alone (so icy)
You said she's scared of me?
I mean, I don't see what she sees
But maybe it's 'cause I'm wearing your cologne (let's go)

[Outro: Billie Eilish (Justin Bieber)]
I'm a bad guy (damn right)
I-I'm a bad guy (oh yeah)
Bad guy, bad guy (aw yeah)
I'm a bad
