Bad Blood Lyrics

Artist: Neil Sedaka

It coulda been me but it was you
Who went and bit off a little bit more than he could chew
You said that you had it made, but you been had
The woman no good, no how, thinkin' maybe the blood is bad

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The woman was born to lie
Makes promises she can't keep
With the wink on an eye

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Brother, you've been deceived
It's bound to change you mind
About all you believe

>From where I stand, it looks mighty strange
How you let a woman like that treat you like small change
I don't understand what you're lookin' to find
The only thing bad blood do is mess up a good man's mind

SPOKEN: Hear me talkin' now

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The bitch is in her smile
The lie is on her lips
Such an evil child

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Is takin' you for a ride
The only good thing about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Bad blood, talkin' 'bout bad blood

Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Doo-ron, doo-ron, di di, dit, dit, ron-ron
Bad blood
SPOKEN: Here we go

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
The bitch is in her smile
The lie is on her lips
Such an evil child

Bad (ba-a-ad) blood (blo-o-od)
Is takin' you for a ride
The only thing good about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

The only good thing about bad blood
Is lettin' it slide

So true with women
by Thom Rutledge on 10/15/2008 9:15am
Is this song about Sarah Palin?
by Capt. Obvious on 11/10/2008 4:15pm
Palin? Probably. But is the blood the blood of the skinned animals she wears, the fish her hubby kills, or the moose and elk she shoots?
by CJ on 11/11/2008 3:30pm
heard it on That 70s Show...good one.
by Pete on 11/14/2008 5:47am
CJ...Me too...I got the boxed set of that show here in China.....30 bucks!
Great tune
by esme on 11/18/2008 9:08pm

by que es fountain drink on 12/9/2008 8:07am

This could have been written about my ex, now someone elses ex, soon to be someone elses ex
by Rick on 2/16/2009 4:49pm
Since you liberal, left wing idiots feel the need to SLAM Sarah Palin any chance you get...even on a Neil Sedaka lyrics board...

Why is it that all you hypocrite dems were so up in arms about SP receiving $150,000 worth of clothing from the RNC...but you had no problems with our jerkoff president spending $150 Million on an inauguration.

Meanwhile, THOUSANDS of americans are losing their homes to forclosure...but not a peep from the very same people who ridiculed SP for clothes she didn't ant or buy?

So, all you liberal left wing pathetic hypocrites, answer me that little mind bender please.......
by Woodygal on 2/25/2009 9:54pm
This is just so me! I just didn't know it was in the blood!
by mary on 3/15/2009 9:56pm
What the hell does a Neil Sedaka song have do to with politics??? It does not!!!! Idiots LMAO great song : )
by Bill on 4/15/2009 11:18am
A great song. It's my favorite Sedaka song. I used to think it was Loggins and Messina.
by Kelley on 5/6/2009 12:21pm
This is a great song!!! Good song to listen to while jogging!!
by eoghan on 5/19/2009 1:02am
good song, yup libtards should have stayed quiet!
by fred on 6/13/2009 11:58pm
You rep's. are idiots! must be proud of the worst excuse for a president EVER! He's indicative of your party. thanks to you, those people lost there job! Morons!!!!
by Andy on 6/28/2009 2:27am
This song is a true lost classic! Great rhythm, lyrics, and of course one Elton John duetting with Mr. Sedaka. 1975 was a great year for music.
by grammarnazi on 7/2/2009 5:58am
"their". And jobs should be in plural, as the rest of your sentence is plural. So the correct grammar is "their jobs".
Learn to use your alma mater yould ya, silly yank.
by jessica on 7/9/2009 11:35am
I have been trying to find out who sang this song FOREVER...I would have never guessed in a MILLION years that it was Neil Sedaka...AWESOME!
by ginala128 on 7/13/2009 10:41pm
geeze I was just curious about the lyrics.....
by mich61elle on 7/18/2009 1:32am
Amen ginala128! But since you brought it up, Slick Willie is the one who sent all our jobs south of the border.
by amanda on 7/27/2009 10:42pm

by carlos on 8/23/2009 11:35pm
I just wanted to say this a great song
by Ben on 8/26/2009 5:06pm
Why dont you cry babies go whine about the president on a jonas brothers lyrics board or something? Sound like little girls.
by gladys on 10/13/2009 9:03am
so true ben,bunch of right wing steaming pile's, bitching about politic's. its just a freaking song get a life, get over it and move on, ass wipe's.
by Blake on 11/11/2009 8:07pm
Great song was #1 song on Billboard chart 10-11-75 for 3 weeks . Song got me through college
by ME on 11/16/2009 11:03pm
by Vanessa on 11/25/2009 11:18pm
This IS a great song. I thank the heavens above every day that Sarah Palin is not our vice president. She's a sociopathic carpetbagger who uses her children and middle-aged uterus like stage props to populate the tragicomedy that is her life. Her followers are pathetic and ill-informed, using their faux "patriotism" as a veil to hide their blatant bigotry. But maybe Palin zealots won't understand what I just said unless I close it with her perennial, "You betcha!" [wink, wink, nervous giggle]
by Randy on 12/10/2009 11:48pm
Vanessa,where's your evidence of SP being a bigot? I've found that a liberal's last, desperate defense against someone they fear is to hurl unfounded insults. All that hatred isn't healthy... listen to Neil's great song and shut the hell up!
by Vanessa on 12/16/2009 9:51am
Evidence of SP's bigotry? You need evidence? When she was campaigning, if you want to call it that, for VP, how many times did she tell the white faces (the only faces you'd see at an SP rally) that Obama "wasn't like us" [wink, wink], and that the heartland of America was the "real America" [wink, wink], and that the America on the east coast and west coast didn't reflect "real American values" [wink, wink], 'cuz I guess that's where all those intellectuals and people who valued all that them there book-learnin' lived. Randy, you're exactly what feeds into SP's phantasmagorical machine of hatred. Remember, I called it veiled bigotry. Veiled bigotry is not overt, it's covert -- SP's specialty. [wink, wink] And it's called freedom of speech, Randy, so no, I won't "shut the hell up!"
by hillbillyhoward on 1/28/2010 9:33pm
maybe this is really OSAMBA"S SWAN SONG ROFLMMFAO!!!!!!!!!!!
by drumroll on 2/16/2010 1:06am
How in the world did the conversatin turn into politics? You guys talking politics are idiots, take it somewhere else. Doesn't belong here.

Now - back on topic - the rumour back in the 70's was that this song was about VD.
by intelligentdem on 4/1/2010 6:28pm
Love the song. And for the record, because I am intelligent, I am a liberal. If you are a conservative, then you are ignorant, uninformed and sorry for this, stupid. Think for yourselves people.
by Nick on 4/5/2010 4:42pm
This song is obviously about Kate Gosselin. Intelligentdem, you are a douche.
by The Doctor on 4/19/2010 3:29pm
Christ on a pogo stick, would ALL of you people -- liberal *and* conservative alike -- who are so obsessed with politics that you you can't even visit a web page about a 1970's pop song without getting into your little p---ing contest just go out and SHOOT yourselves, already? Can't we have ANYPLACE on the web that's free of your assorted jackassery? Or are you really such bitter, spiteful, burned-out shells of humanity that your hate for "the other side" is all you have left?

Here endeth the rant. Can we talk about the freakin' song now?

Drumroll -- interesting theory about VD; I hadn't heard that one. I always took the song more or less at face value; that it was about a woman who was deceitful, manipulative, a gold digger, unfaithful, or otherwise just generally bad news to get involved with, and that the "bad blood" was meant to suggest it was a case of "like mother, like daughter".
by cameron on 8/5/2010 3:30am
that 70's show.... too fez and ronda kitty and eric....great show and great song
by Chris on 8/19/2010 2:30pm
Never in a million years would I have guessed Neil Sedaka.
by mike on 9/1/2010 9:13pm
you guys are so young....this was a big hit in the 70's and Elton John is singing the harmony in the chorus.
by Ihatelibs on 9/24/2010 9:00am
Not about palin, stupid libs, it's about your mother
by Ed on 1/17/2011 7:30am
Remember George Carlin's bit from the 70's about all the slang terms for pot?

"'Mary Jane'. It's in all the books. Pot, weed, grass, Mary Jane. NOBODY EVER SAID IT!"

"Bad blood" was the VD equivalent.
by Chris K on 2/1/2011 8:01pm
Has anyone mentioned that's Elton John on backing vocals? Always loved this song. Great beat and cool lyrics. Too bad the 70's weren't kind to Sedaka. One of the greatest songwriters of all time.
by Bytor69 on 4/4/2011 2:53am
Hello people. Im not crazy and am infact well educated. Now, with that out of the way, this song is about the queen of England and BLUE BLOOD. Once you look at the song in this way, theres really no doubt about what its really talking about.
The first verse is about how it could have been any of us, but one of us was tricked by the gods and "bit off a little bit more then you could chew" (a refrence to the eating of the apple on the tree of good and evil). Again, every word speaks to this. Spare change is speaking of money ofcourse. "The lie is on her lips, such an evil child" along with knowing Blue blood alone is really enough. But with all the other refrences, really, I dont know how you could interpret it any other way.
by Michael on 4/20/2011 6:34pm
I was informed about this song from "That 70's Show."
by BRETT on 6/29/2011 1:49pm
Still sounds great.
by BRETT on 6/29/2011 1:52pm
Still sounds great.Now I can sing along.
by me on 2/1/2012 7:52pm
this is the best song EVER!!!!!
by Dano on 3/21/2012 11:51am
Great song, I remember when it can out. It has nothing to do with VD. Or politics.
by aussie p on 9/30/2012 9:33pm
love the song, but i think the chorus actually goes: did you run, you run, did you did you run run? etc. makes more sense
by TLS on 2/7/2013 8:15pm
When I left work last night, this song was blasting from a guy's pick-up truck. I had not heard it since I was a little kid. I googled it because I realized I never knew who sang it. Would never have guessed Neil Sedaka or Elton John. Sounded like Kenny Loggins. I have Laughter in the Rain on my iPod and will get this one the next time I'm logged in.
by Denise on 2/23/2013 6:53pm
I think they wrote this about Jodi Arias.
by missy on 5/4/2013 3:40pm
I would use this in my middle school classroom to teach unreliable narrator if it didn't use the b word. Read the first line again - sounds like the singer wanted the girl, too. Can we believe everything he says about her? Seems like his friend is still happy with the relationship. By the way, love the song. Heard it on sirius today in the car and had to come home and listen to it again.
by joe blow on 6/16/2013 7:15am
Why doesn't someone ask Neal what he meant by his words?
by Suzanne on 8/11/2015 2:08pm
Awesome Elton John vocals as backup!
