HIGH SCHOOL HELLCATS
(Dave Alvin)
JAMES INTVELD with RACHEL SWEET
(Cry Baby Soundtrack - MCA Records, 1990)

You call us hoods and say we've gone mad
'Cause we feel so good when we're big and bad
We're high school hellcats (on our own)
High school hellcats (almost grown)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good

Yeah, stand back, look out, we're renegade teens
Friends of the devil, twice as mean
We're looking for kicks, we want 'em now
We're gonna get 'em and we don't care how
We're high school hellcats (on our own)
High school hellcats (almost grown)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good

Yeah, you lock us up in your schools
But we weren't born to live by rules
We say yes, and you say no
When you say stop, we say go cat go
We're high school hellcats (on our own)
High school hellcats (almost grown)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good

Yeah, high school hellcats (on our own)
High school hellcats (almost grown)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it feels so good

Well, U.S.A. - the land of the free
We should be what we wanna be
But everyone says, we should be like them
But we're high school hellcats and we never fit in
We're high school hellcats (on our own)
High school hellcats (almost grown)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good

We're high school hellcats (high school)
High school hellcats (hellcats)
Come on and pick a fight, we wish you would
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good
We love being bad 'cause it sure feels good
