Kate Nash – Bad Lieutenant lyrics
[Verse 1]
My head is underwater
And I can't see the light
I guess you over slept it
But baby I'll be fine

So go on hold me down and flush
'Cause darling I ain't in a rush
And I can hold my breath
Let's not forget

I'm a bad lieutenant

[Pre-Chorus]
God knows I've had enough tough luck
'Nough blood knees are bruised up
Don't worry 'bout being down on my luck
If you choke I'm a diamond in the rough
If you knew me then you'll know what I'm made of
And I call your bluff

[Chorus]
I'm a bad lieutenant
Call me crazy I'm velvet
Already told you that I'm made of bricks I'm sermon[?]
Got my girl gang got my back got them
The boys love me and I love them
I ain't got time if you ain't a friend
Talk back get yourself to the back end

[Post Chorus]
What am I? What am I?
What am I made of?
I'm a bad lieutenant

What am I? What am I made of?
I'm a bad lieutenant

[Verse 2]
I'll be thinking of you
Been wondering where you been
If you bump into me -
Oh!
Forgive me for my sins

[Pre-Chorus]
God knows I've had enough tough luck
'Nough blood knees are bruised up
Ain't worry 'bout being down on my luck
If you choke I'm a diamond in the rough
If you knew me then you'll know what I'm made of
And I call your bluff

[Chorus]
I'm a bad lieutenant
Call me crazy I'm velvet
Already told you that I'm made of bricks I'm sermon[?]
Got my girl gang got my back got them
The boys love me and I love them
I ain't got time if you ain't a friend
Talk back get yourself to the back end

I'm a bad lieutenant
I'm a bad lieutenant
Oh!

[Post-Chorus]
What am I? What am I?
What am I made of?
I'm a bad lieutenant

What am I? What am I made of?
I'm a bad lieutenant

[Chorus]
I'm a bad lieutenant
Call me crazy I'm velvet
Already told you that I'm made of bricks I'm sermon[?]
Got my girl gang got my back got them
The boys love me and I love them
I ain't got time if you ain't a friend
Talk back get yourself to the back end

I'm a bad lieutenant
I'm a bad lieutenant

Oh!
