Bob Marley – Bad Boys lyrics
UH! Bad boys watcha gon, watcha gon, watcha gonna do?
When sheriff john brown come for you?
Tell me! Whatcha gonna do? When they come for you?

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

When you were eight and you had bad traits you go to school
And learn the golden rule, So why are you acting like a bloody fool
If you get hot then you must get cool!

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

You chuck it on that one,
You chuck it on this one,
You chuck it on ya mother,
And ya chuck it on ya father,
Ya chuck it on ya brother,
And ya chuck it on ya siter,
You chuck it on that one and you chuck it on Me!

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

Nobody naw give ya no Break,
Police naw give you no break,
And no Soldierman naw give you no break,
Not even you idren naw give you no break

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?
(When they come for you?)

Why did you have to act so mean?
Don't you know you're a human being?
Born of a mother with the love of a father,
Reflexion comes and reflexion goes,
I know sometimes you wanna let go
Hehehe I know sometimes you wanna let go

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

You're too bad,
You're too rude,
You're too bad,
You're too rude,

Bad boys, bad boys whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do?
When they come for you?
Bad boys bad boys whatcha gonna do?
Whatcha gonna do whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

You chuck it on that one,
You chuck it on this one,
You chuck it on ya mother,
And ya chuck it on ya father,
Ya chuck it on ya brother,
And ya chuck it on ya siter,
You chuck it on that one and you chuck it on Me!

    This isn't even a Bob Marley song. It was written by Inner Circle and released 6 years after Marley died. I'm assuming you think that every reggae song was written by Bob Marley. Sure, it sounds a little bit like him, but it's not. Bob Marley wouldn't have written garbage like Bad Boys. Do your homework.

    Wrong spelling - wrong words - wrong song structure.
    But worst:.
    Bob Marley neither wrote nor ever did perform this song!
    The song was originally released in 1987 on the Inner Circle's album One Way, but was not released as a single in the United States until 1993. It reached #53 in the United Kingdom and #8 in the United States, going gold along the way. The song was also released as B-side on Inner Circle's 1992 single, "Sweat (A La La La La Long)"
    The song, which enjoyed much popularity during the 1990s, is a reggae song that was also used in the Will Smith and Martin Lawrence action/comedy film Bad Boys and the sequel Bad Boys 2 (some of the lyrics are sung by Smith and Lawrence in both films).
    Contrary to mistaken labeling on the internet, Bob Marley never wrote or performed this song; he died six years before its release. Both "Bad Boys" and Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff" refer to a "Sheriff John D. Brown." In "I Shot the Sheriff," Brown is the shooting victim; in "Bad Boys," one line asks "What'cha gonna do/When the Sheriff John Brown come for you."
    Sorry.

    Wne this song was written, he life of teenage thieves and dealers had not been glorified by N. W. A, ice t, dmx. So what you have is marley pleading and sympathizing with corner boys who have no hope in their future and have turned to illegal activities just to have money for food and clothes and rent. He is begging them to think about the effects of their actions.
