(Verse one)
He is a hustler
He's no good at all
He is a loser, he's a bum (bum bum bum)
He lies, he bluffs he's unreliable
He is a sucker with a gun (gun gun gun)
I know you told me I should stay away
I know you said he's just a dog astray
He is a badboy with a tainted heart and even I know this ain't smart.

(Chorus)
But Mama I'm in love with a criminal
And this type of love isn't rational it's physical,
Mama please don't cry I will be alright,
All reason aside I just can't deny,
Love the guy

(Verse 2)
He is a villain of the devil's law,
He is a killer just for fun (fun, fun, fun)
That mans a snitch and unpredictable
He's got no concious he got none (none, none, none)

Oh, oh, I know-o, should let go, but no
Cause, he is a badboy with a tainted heart
And even I know this ain't smart

(Chorus)
But Mama I'm in love with a criminal
And this type of love isn't rational it's physical
Mama please don't cry I will be alright
All reason aside I just can't deny
Love the guy

(Bridge)
And he's got my name tatooed on his arm, his lucky charm
So I guess it's okay
He's with me
And I hear people talk (people talk)
Try to make remarks, keep us apart
But I don't even hear, I don't care

(Chorus)
Cause Mama I'm in love with a criminal
And this type of love isn't rational it's physical
Mama please don't cry I will be alright
All reason aside I just can't deny
Love the guy
(Repeat 3x)
