Something Bad - Miranda Lambert ft. Carrie Underwood



The Experience: In Miranda Lambert's own words, Platinum is a reflection of her life. "All 16 songs together make up a picture... I wanted it to be perfect; I wanted it to matter. There’s girl power, not in the ‘I’m gonna burn your house down and kill you, but more where I am as a 30- year-old woman and wife." Something Bad takes a look at life's darker side...





Music Video: Miranda Lambert scam at poker, rob banks, ride Harleys, and generally kill it in a phony but nonetheless very awesome movie trailer.


The Meaning of Something Bad: In Miranda's own words, "I'm more settled in life, embracing the good and the bad, and that's reflected on Platinum." Something Bad takes a look at the voice of conscience - that shout deep down inside you that the way you're headed, something bad's about to happen. The only problem with the song is that nothing bad ever happens... which is just a tad unrealistic. Bad things do happen to you if you go looking for them. Actions have consequences.

Ask Yourself: Have you managed to come to grips with your own mistakes?


LYRICS:

Stand on the box stomp your feet start clappin'
Got a real good feeling something bad about to happen

Oh Oh Oh Oh (x4)

[Miranda]

Pulled up to the church but I got so nervous
Had to bag it on up couldn't make it to the service
Grabbed all the cash underneath my mattress
Got a real good feelin something bad about to happen

Oh Oh Oh Oh (x2)

[Carrie]

Ran into a girl in a pretty white dress
Rolled down the window"Where you headed to miss?"
Said I'm headed to the bar with my money out the mattress
Got a real good feeling something bad about to happen

Oh Oh Oh Oh (x2)

Stand on the Box stomp your feet start clappin'
Got a real good feeling something bad about to happen
Drinks keep comin' throw my head back laughin'
Wake up in the morning don't know what happened

Oh - Somethin' Bad
Oh - Somethin' Bad

[Carrie]

Now me and that girl that I met on the street
We're rollin' down the road down to New Orleans
Got a full tank of gas and the money out the mattress
Got a real good feeling something bad about to happen

Oh Oh Oh Oh (x2)

[Miranda]

'Bout to tear it up down in New Orleans
Just like a real life Thelma and Louise
If the cops catch up they gonna call it kidnapping
Got a real good feeling something bad about to happen

Oh Oh Oh Oh (x2)

Stand on the box stomp your feet start clappin'
Got a real good feelin something bad about to happen
Drinks keep comin' throw my head back laughin'
Wake up in the morning don't know what happened

Oh - Somethin' Bad
Oh - Somethin' Bad

Stand on the box stomp your feet start clappin'
Got a real good feelin something bad about to happen
Drinks keep comin' throw my head back laughin'
Wake up in the morning don't know what happened

Oh - Somethin' Bad
Oh - Somethin' Bad
