DNCE - Be Mean Lyrics

Say you like the torture honey
Don't forget the whip
My left hand's getting loose
Don't let me slip
Said you got some handcuffs
We'll throw out the key
I don't need a safe word
But you don't gotta save me

If pain's what you like
Torture me all night

Keep on burnin', love how you keep me hurtin'
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me
With that body you got the right to get naughty
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me

You say you gotta be the boss
'Cause you pay them bills
There's a brand new position
Someone's gotta feel, pick me
They say you need a whisper
You wanna hear me scream
Lookin' so smokin'
Honey, I can barely breathe

If pain's what you like
Torture me all night

Keep on burnin', love how you keep me hurtin'
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me
With that body you got the right to get naughty
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me

Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?
Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?

You gotta be mean, baby
Listen up, hey
Gladly I'll take poison from your lips (from your lips)
Touch you when I burn my fingertips, ah ah
I could learn to love, I must commit
If you want, then I'll submit
If you want, then I'll submit

Keep on burnin', love how you keep me hurtin'
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me
With that body you got the right to get naughty
So be mean, be mean to me
Be mean to me

Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?
Would you promise that you'll always be mean, be mean to me?
