So come on, baby, let down your guard.

When your date's in the bathroom,

I'll slip you my card!

I can tell just by looking

That you've got it hard--

For ME!
—"Special", Lucy the Slut from Avenue Q.

A subtrope of the "I Am" Song, in which a female character establishes her character... and her character is all about living freely, especially sexually. How explicitly that sexuality is addressed mostly depends on how old the musical is.

In musicals, usually sung by the secondary female character (soubrette). She might be anything from a prostitute to a Good Bad Girl.

Examples of Bad Girl Song include:



  • "Private Dancer" by Tina Turner.
  • "Call Me" by Blondie. The singer is a girl, and she's asking for a call. Get the picture?
  • "Bad Girls" by Donna Summer, anyone?
  • Pretty much any song by Beyonce after her split from Destiny's Child. Grrl Power attached to a danceable beat and long legs.
  • "Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay":

 Ere my verses I conclude

I'd like it known and understood

Though free as air, I'm never rude

I'm not too bad and not too good!

  • Tata Young's Sexy, Naughty, Bitchy
  • The Pussycat Dolls "Doncha"
  • "Shove" by L7 from the Tank Girl soundtrack.
