LyricsEdit

Final version Edit

(I told you not go into the woods
I told you that he wasn't any good)
(I told you not go into the woods
I told you that he wasn't any good)

I'll take the wrong path
I think I've gone a little off track
And now there's no way back
You took all the apples that I had

But I heart you and I wanna be your girl
I heart you and I know you'll rock my world

'Cause you rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
You know that I want what you got
You rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Big bad wolf, come on and eat me up

(I told you not go into the woods)

Big bad naughty rockstar
Your claws are shinin' bright in the dark
Liftin' up my little red skirt
I know you'll leave me here in the dirt

But I heart you and I wanna be your girl
I heart you, so come back and rock my world

'Cause you rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
You know that I want what you got
You rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Big bad wolf, come on and eat me up

Life is like, like a little game
That we like to play, just for fun, just for fun
Yeah, we take nothing seriously
Nothing's wrong, make me run all night long

Hide and seek is how you play with me
Oh, you're temptin' me, just for fun, just for fun
I hear you callin' me over, city streets
Through the trees, mess with me, then you'll leave

Oh, be still, my heart
Escapin' in your cherry red car

'Cause you rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
You know that I want what you got
You rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Big bad wolf, come on and eat me up

'Cause you rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
You know that I want what you got
You rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Big bad wolf, come on and eat me up

'Cause you rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
You know that I want what you got
You rock, rock, rock, rock, rock
Big bad wolf, come on and eat me up

Big bad naughty rockstar
