What We Learn From BSB Songs: If You Want It To Be Good Girl…

GET YOURSELF A BAD BOY!

Sorry, the song title was too long to use for my post title if I wanted it to fit into a tweet. This song, well, the Boys hate it as Nick happily likes to point out at random. It’s easy to see why. It’s a bit of a cheesefest. And since American politics have got us all down, because seriously, they’re a headache right now. I figure, let’s go back to poking fun at BSB lyrics! I’ve missed it. Is this song an easy target…fine, it is. But I can’t help myself! Besides on the twitter I created solely for the BSB Residency news/advice ( @BSBinVegas #EndShamelessPlug), I keep seeing a lot of fans tweet their hopes that it’ll be on the set list. Could be why I thought of it.

Let’s begin!

If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
(Yeah I like this, ha ha)

1. Funny cause over the course of the next albums after this, you’re telling me to Get Anther Boyfriend (see what I did there?) because they’re bad boys!

If you want it to be wild
Gotta know just who to dial baby (that’s me)
If you really like it hot
Find someone who hits the spot honey (oh yes)

2. Okay, I’m with you so far. Can we have your number then?

3. So far this song makes sense, thus giving it a one-up over I Want It That Way (analyzing that song still haunts me you know. NEVER AGAIN.)

4. This song was totally inappropriate for 10/11-year-old me. Good thing my mom never realized the lyrics I was listening.

5. Wait…their fanbase was on average about that age! What the heck?

And if you want to get it done
Babe you gotta get the one
The one who’s got it goin’ on

6. We’ve got it going on for years…wait, wrong song.

7. I’ll be the one…nope, wrong song again.

If you wanna make it last
Gotta know just who to ask
Babe he’s gotta be the best (tonight it’s me)

8. Wait, are we saying tomorrow it’ll be someone else who’s the best?

9. If it’s Nick today (which by the way since he’s like 15/16 when he sang this…LOL for years) does that mean tomorrow it’s AJ? When is it Kevin? And Brian? I have questions!

10. I need a schedule of what days which Backstreet Boy is best. It matters dammit.

If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
If you really want it good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
Get it like it could be, would be
Yeah like it should be
If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy

11. How could it be?

12. How would it be?

13. How should it be?

14. For all this bragging you’re really skimping on the details here.

If you like it innovative
Better get someone creative honey (yes)
And if you want it to be jammin’
Gotta get somebody slammin’ baby (oh yeah)

15. Jam on cause backstreet’s got it…(Okay so my attention span sucks.)

16. Oh 90s slang…yeah, BSB were slammin’. Anyone else giggle-snort at the idea of one of the Boys actually saying that? Just me?

And if you want to get it done
Babe you gotta get the one
The one who’s got it goin’ on
If you wanna make it last
Gotta know just who to ask
Babe he’s gotta be the best (tonight it’s me)

17. I need that schedule so I know just who to ask! Is there someone I can talk to about that? Please?

If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
If you really want it good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
Get it like it could be, would be
Yeah like it should be
If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy

18. We all know the bad boy stereotype is a myth…but okay. it still makes for nice mental images. I’ll give there.

Now listen
These are things your mama shouldn’t know
These are things I really wanna show
These are things I wanna show you how
So won’t you let me show you right now? (ooh baby)

19. Where the heck do we sign up for this?!

20. And yeah there’s things our mamas shouldn’t know! Like the lyrics to this song we listened to as impressionable kids! Cause yeah…I had no clue what I was singing.

And if you want to get it done
Babe you gotta get the one
The one who’s got it goin’ on
If you wanna make it last
Gotta know just who to ask
Babe he’s gotta be the best (tonight it’s me)

21. Is it a planner or something? Maybe I’ll get lucky and tonight is Nick’s Night.

If you want it to be good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
If you really want it good girl
Get yourself a bad boy
Get it like it could be, would be
Yeah like it should be
If you want it to be good
Gotta be like it should

22. Okay I sort of just realized this song assumes some would want it bad…which, is awkward.

If you really want it good
If you really want it good

Overall Thoughts: I think it’s hilarious I used to sing this at the top of my lungs at 10 years old. It’s an example of cheesy 90s classics that don’t hold up over time. Also, apparently whoever is good depends on what day of the week it is. I want details on what Boy has what day, and the way it should, could and would be. Who’s with me on that?
