(Coverdale/Sykes)

I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down
I steal around, like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city
I see you, you see me
Just a black street boy in society
With high-heeled women full of champagne an' lies,
Getting wild in the street
'Til the hot sunrise
Stealing round like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city,
Wild in the city

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city

I know you, you know me
I'm the black sheep of the family,
I'm in an' out of trouble
I'm the talk of the town
I get wild in the street
When the sun goes down

I don't care what the people think,
I can't hear what the people say,
I steal around like a thief in the night
Dancing 'til the break of day

Bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Bad, bad, bad boys,
Running undercover of moonlight
Bad, bad boys,
Getting wild in the street,
Wild in the city

Undercover of moonlight...
