"Bad Man" by Langston Hughes

I'm a bad man
Cause everybody tells me so.
I'm a bad, bad man.
Everybody tells me so.
I takes my meanness and ma licker
Everywhere I go.

I beats my wife an'
I beats ma side fall too.
Beats my wide an'
Beats my side gall too.
Don't know why I do it but
It keeps me from feelin' blue.

I'm so bad I
Don't even want to be good.
So bad, bad, bad I
Don't even want to be good.
I'm goin' to da devil an'
I wouldn't go to heaven if I could.
