Well if you've been a married woman
And things didn't seem to work out
Divorce is the key to being loose and free
But you're gonna be talked about

The women all look at you like you're bad
The men all hope you are
But if you go too far
You're gonna wear the scar
Of a women, rated x

And if you're rated x
You're some kinda goal
That even men turned civil try to make
But I think it's wrong
To judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake

So if your best friend's husband
Says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would
And he would if he could
And he will if you're rated x

Well nobody knows where you're going
But they sure know where you been
All they're thinking of
Is your experience in love
Well their minds fill up with sin
The women all look at you like you're bad
The men all hope you are
But if you go too far
You're gonna wear the scar
Of a women, rated x

And if you're rated x
You're some kinda goal
That even men turned civil try to make
But I think it's wrong
To judge every picture
If a cheap camera makes a mistake

So if your best friend's husband
Says to you
That you started lookin' good
You should've known he would
And he would if he could
And he will if you're rated x
