Cherry Bomb
by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts

Can't stay at home,
Can't stay at school.
Old folks say,
'You poor little fool'.

Down the street,
I'm the girl next door.
I'm the fox you've been waiting for.

Hello Daddy,
Hello Mom,
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.
Hello world,
I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.

Stone age love and strange sounds too,
Come on baby let me get to you.
Bad nights causin' teenage blues,
Get down ladies you've got nothing to lose!

Hello Daddy,
Hello Mom,
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.
Hello world,
I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.

Hey street boy what's your style?
Your dead end dreams don't make you smile,
I'll give ya something to live for,
Have ya, grab ya
'Til you're sore.

Hello Daddy,
Hello Mom,
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.
Hello world,
I'm your wild girl.
I'm your ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb.

I honestly like this better than the original. Joan gives the lyrics an entire new meaning than when she sang it in a group of singers

Renna

I agree. I think Joan's voice is more harmonious with the tune. It sounds like she's actually singing and not just shouting the whole time. I get that's the genre, but I just prefer Joan's execution here.

TheAstrius

@slabo ide Joan and Kim Fowley wrote the song, but Cherie Currie sang lead on it for the first public release and videos since at the time she was lead singer of Joans band.

slabo ide

Joan Jett's version isn't original?

TheAstrius

@Jacqueline Milom I know this but her voice is obviously stronger here than her Runaways days but she did sing lead for The Runaways towards the end just not for this song. So I would say more Mature, I mean she was still almost a child when she went solo what like 21.. 22.

Jacqueline Milom

@TheAstrius Joan doesn't really sing much on the original version. It's mostly Cherie. So I don't know if it's more mature or just more up front. As she was kind of in the background on the original. Also the girls were like 15 or 16 when this song was recorded originally.
