Bad est le titre phare de l'album du même nom, il paraîtrait même qu'au départ cette chanson aurait du être un duo entre Michael Jackson et Prince.
La chanson Bad figure également sur le double album HIStory dans le 1er CD intitulé HIStory Begins et ce en 6ème position.
Ce titre a fait l'objet d'un clip vidéo qui en fait est un véritable court métrage qui nous montre les talents d'acteur du King of Pop.

Les Paroles :

BAD
Par : Michael Jackson

 

Your butt is mine
Gonna tell you right
Just show your face
In broad daylight
I'm telling you
On how I feel
Gonna hurt your mind
Don't shoot to kill
Come on,

Come on,
Lay it on me
All right . . .

I'm giving you
On count of three
To show your stuff
Or let it be . . .
I'm telling you
Just watch your mouth
I know your game
What you're about

Well they say the sky's the limit
And to me that's really true
But my friend you have seen nothin'
Just wait 'til I get through

Because I'm bad, I'm bad come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad-you know it
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad come on, you know
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
And the whole world has to
Answer right now
Just to tell you once again,
Who's bad . . .

The word is out
You're doin' wrong
Gonna lock you up
Before too long,
Your lyin' eyes
Gonna tell you right
So listen up
Don't make a fight,
Your talk is cheap
You're not a man
You're throwin' stones
To hide your hands

But they say the sky's the limit
And to me that's really true
And my friends you have seen nothin'
Just wait 'til I get through...

Because I'm bad, I'm bad come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad you know it
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad you know it, you know
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
(And the whole world has to answer right now)
Just to tell you once again,
(Just to tell you once again)
Who's bad . . .

We can change the world tomorrow
This could be a better place
If you don't like what I'm sayin'
Then won't you slap myface . . .

Because I'm bad, I'm bad-come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad-you know it
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad you know it, you know
(Bad bad-really, really bad)

Woo! Woo! Woo!
(And the whole world has to answer right now Just to tell you once again . . .)

You know I'm bad, I'm bad come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad,I'm bad-you know it-you know it
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know, you know, you know, come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
(And the whole world has to answer right now)
Just to tell you
(Just to tell you once again)

You know I'm smooth, I'm bad, you know it
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know I'm bad, I'm bad baby
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
You know, you know, you know it, come on
(Bad bad-really, really bad)
And the whole world has to answer right now
(And the whole world has to answer right now)
Woo!
(Just to tell you once again)

Who's bad ?

Traduction:

Tu m'appartiens
Je vais te dire la vérité
Montre juste ton visage
En pleine lumière
Je te dis, oh ce que je ressens
le monde demain
Je vais blesser ton esprit
Ne tire pas pour me tuer
Viens.

Viens.
Vide ton sac
Ok.

Je vais te donner jusqu'à trois
Pour montrer ton vrai visage
Ou laisser tomber
Je te dis, regarde juste ta bouche
Je connais ton jeu
Ce que tu es réellement

Refrain :

Ils disent que le ciel est la limite
Et pour moi c'est vrai
Mais mon ami tu n'as encore rien vu
Attends et tu verras

Car je suis mauvais, je suis mauvais
Viens
Tu sais que je suis mauvais, je suis mauvais
Tu le sais
Tu sais que je suis mauvais, je suis mauvais
Viens, Tu sais
Et le monde entier possède la réponse de la vérité
Juste pour te dire encore une fois
Qui est mauvais

Les mots sont morts
Tu prends la mauvaise voie
Tu vas te perdre dans les abysses
Tes yeux de mensonges vont divulguer la vérité
Alors écoute bien, ne provoque pas une bagarre
Tes paroles sont faibles
Tu n'es pas un homme
Tu lance des pierres
Tu caches tes mains

refrain :

Nous pouvons changer le monde demain
En faire un endroit meilleur
Si tu n'aimes pas ce que je dis
Alors frappe-moi au visage

refrain...
