AC/DC - Problem Child Lyrics




Cop this
I'm hot, and when I'm not
I'm cold as ice
Get out of my way
Just Step aside
Or pay the price

What I want I take
What I don't I break
And I don't want you
With a flick of my knife
I can change your life
There's nothing you can do

I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child, yes I am
I'm a problem child
And I'm wild

Make my stand
No man's land
On my own
Man in blue
It's up to you
The seed is sown

What I want I stash
What I don't I smash
And you're on my list
Dead or alive
I got a .45
And I never miss

I'm a problem child, hey
I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child
Just runnin' wild

Just watch your step

Every night
Street light
I drink my booze
Some run
Some fight
But I win they lose
What I need I like
What I don't I fight
And I don't like you
Say bye bye
While you're still alive
Your time is through

Cause I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child
Problem child
I'm a problem child
Even my mother hates me
I'm a problem child
I'm a problem child
(Problem child, problem child)
(Problem child, problem child), you got your problems I got mine
(Problem child, problem child)
(Problem child, problem child)
Problem child
I'm a problem child
Problem child
And I'm running wild
I'm a problem child
(Problem child, problem child...)

  17. RJ Groot

    RIP Malcolm.

  18. Gene Clark

    Im almost 51 and this is in my top 5 of all time

    James Sharp

    Gene Clark I’m 51 and didn’t hear Dirty Deeds LP until 1981 but man what an explosive year of music
    I actually got to race an 81 Honda my uncle owned since new . It was a tough day and it broke , but for a few laps I wrung the neck out of that heavy tub of shit while this song ran in my head .

  19. Eric Epperson

    Ride on

  20. Scott Leoski

    THE BEST

  21. Mopar1971

    I always see gang stalkers when I view the album cover, it's creepy, but the song kicks ass!

  22. Kelvin Maynard

    Dead or alive I’ve got a 45 and I never miss cuz I’m a PROBLEM CHILD,and my mother hates me problem child since 1977\m/.

  23. bob bobo

    Bon and Malcolm.....RIP lads. Fucking legends.

  24. Elliott Mayer

    Fucking a I have goosebumps

  25. Tracy Cowan

    When I was born my parents looked at me and said HELLS BELLS
    Oh by the way I'm a ginger👩‍🦰🤪😈

  26. Reuben Guillen

    AC/DC kicks ass! Those nasty riffs and rhythm tracks!

  27. Coyote

    I went to school with a guy this song painted on his 70 Chevelle.

  28. originalscottfree

    This was my 1st album back in the day... My mother HATED Big Balls, this is why I played it over and over and over.... and over... Till she would sing it with me...:D Then should play her 3 dog night over and over and over.. Until I could sing it with her...... Damn, I miss my mom. :(

    Rick Contreras

    I miss my mom too, enjoy the memories she'll never be forgotten.

    originalscottfree

    @Rick Contreras For a man, Mom is the big one. Just know she lives on inside of you, your opinions and views are her's also... Parents imprint themselves upon us their "being" I suppose, weird but comforting.

    Jesus promised a return visit, I have looked more and more forward to that since she passed away. Hang in their, you are not alone.

  29. Ryan Riley

    My rain 1984 to 1988 Renton highlands washing back in day but I can say that now because I'm 40 Fu☠️k 🇨🇮

    Ryan Riley

    OFF🏴‍☠️🇨🇮,🏴‍☠️🇨🇮 blood of the Irish conpals you so let be written so let be told forever GOD JESUS and HOLY SRIRT ahemen jahova forever Amen

    E. R. Corp

    @Ryan Riley wait, jesus repeatedly says "why dost thou call me god when i am only the son of man and have only come because of the message of He whom that sent me." In other words Jesus is a prophet of God and there is only one God. Just thought I'd point it out so you can read youeself. (only others called him son of god etc).

  30. Steve Lim

    Almost all their songs are based on the same I-IV-V chord sequences, so I'm getting a little bored with their music. There are many other blues-based groups that have or had a little more imagination.

    kostasgreece1994

    they built a legend based on those chord sequences, it worked for them, I am happy that it did,we enjoy it a lot,but still , I respect your opinion, have a pleasant afternoon

    Dustin Plum

    Shut up pyssy

    Natalie Lott

    fuck witt

  31. Brady Hess

    You are my problem Dale, fortunately for you. You would have no hope in hell otherwise.

  32. M???????? A???????

    good one

  65. Brian Cook

    Great songs will live forever. Let's go!🤟

  66. Zackstaa

    When the riff started back up at the end....I love it when bands put bonuses for the people who listen to the whole song

    Anna Vajda

    It's called the outro.

    Zackstaa

    Anna Vajda AC/DC doesn’t do outros in a lot of songs. So when they do it’s special. This song and “Down Payment Blues” are my favorite outros

    Lauri Saastamoinen

    What a fucking riff..

    Stained Angel

    Its called a coda

    gemini2012100

    The version on "Let There Be Rock" doesn't have that part. That's why this version is better.

  67. Da Man

    😎🤘
