If I was a pirate sailing the seas
Would you come and pillage the village with me?
We'll bury the treasure and go down down together
If I was a pirate...

If I was an outlaw robbin' a bank
Would you be my Bonnie, help me get away
Would you pull the trigger and blow 'em away
If I was an outlaw...

How bad would I have to be?
How bad... ?

If I was a vampire roamin' the night
Would be my prey and put your neck on the line?
Live in the shadows and die in the night?
If I was a vampire...

If I was a wanted man on the run
Would you take a fall if we were under the gun?
And Drop down beside me in the nooses they've hung?
If I was a wanted man on the run...

How bad would I have to be?
How bad?
If I was the worst man in the world
Would you still be my girl?
The scariest monster you ever seen
Would you still love me?

If I was killer with blood on my hands
Would you be my alibi and lie on the stand?
Swear on your life that I'm an innocent man?
If I was a killer...

How bad would I have to be?
How bad?
Oooooo...
