LyricsEdit

Version oneEdit

Take me in your fast car, Mercedes
Kissin' on your neck while you drive
He-he doesn't care I'm always on my Blackberry
All the time, all the time, buyin' into every lie

I'm a flashy little lush, but he thinks I'm really fine
Notorious and wild, takes me where I'm gonna shine
Where the bad boys roll hard, dressin' like James Dean
And the vixen starlets, feels so good to be

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's the only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free

Baby, we are chancers on the scene
Glamour in the gutters, only so artique
Sick graffiti artists and tabloid queen
Mix it up, mix it up, every dude you ever seen

We're actin' really tough
Like the world belongs to us
'Cause it does, yeah, it must,
What we do creates the buzz
Where the bad boys blow smoke
Just like they're James Dean
And the it girls blow kisses
Just like Marilyn

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's the only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free

We run for our lives, break out of our chains
So platinum edge, create our own games
DJs, rockstars, posers
We are the new politicians, that's celebrity edition
And it's so pornographic and it's tragic, but the magic
Makes us free to be what we wanna be, wanna be

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's our only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We're children of the bad revolution
Partying's our only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are, what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free, we're gonna
Get free, oh

Version twoEdit

Take me in your fast car, Mercedes
Kissin' on your neck while you drive
He-he doesn't care I'm always on my Blackberry
All the time, all the time, drinkin' liquor on the dime

Flashy little lush but he loves me 'cause I'm fine
I party really hard, but I'm workin' overtime
He's just as bad as me, cause he shine, shine, shines
Like a light, but he's not that bright, but he's mine

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's the only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free

Baby, you're a real star, look at me
I can tell a gem, when I see, see, see
I don't mind you always think about money
All the time, all the time, in your mind, in your mind

I think you're really hot, I really love your style
You party till you drop, you make everybody smile
It's a perfect world and you're my perfect guy
You wanna get too close to the edge, you're not afraid to fly

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's the only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free

Get out of your life, break out of them chains
Run for your life, there's still time to change
Never give up, never forget who you are
Well, what you wanna be? What you wanna be?
Be your own God
Be, be your own
Be, be your own God
Be, be your own
Get free
Get free, get free

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's the only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

Sweet and bloody, my mafiosi
With your dark hair and your switchblade teeth
I don't care you're always actin' shady
Late at night, late at night, it's all right, it's all right

I knew it when we met, knew how you lived your life
Livin' off the grid with a dream and a knife
You can do your thing, baby, if I can do mine
You can watch me sing and I can help you do your crime, crime

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's our only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We're children of the bad revolution
And partying's our only solution
In our minds, there ain't any confusion
About who we are and what we're gonna be

We gonna get free, free
Free, free, free, free, free
Get free
We gonna get free, oh
Get free

(Ooh, ooh, ah
What we're gonna be
Gonna get free
Get free, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah)
