Cherry Bomb
The Runaways Lyrics


Can't stay at home, can't stay at school
Old folks say, "You poor little fool"
Down the streets 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-cherry bomb
Hello world I'm your wild girl
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Stone age love and strange sounds too
Come on, baby, let me get to you
Bad nights causing teenage blues
Get down ladies, you've got nothin' to lose

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I'm your wild girl
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I'm your wild girl
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hey, street boy, what some style?
Your dead end dreams don't make you smile
I'll give you something to live for
Have you and grab you until you're sore

Hello, daddy, hello, mom
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Hello world I'm your wild girl
I'm your ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry Bomb

Hello, everyone -- thought I'd clear something up for you. The reason the lip-synching on this isn't great is that this recording is from our first album and we weren't told in advance we were going to be doing this. We had been, at that point, performing the song a little differently live for some time. Cherie was given no time to listen to the record or to rehearse singing along to it. We just showed up, did a couple of takes and that was that. (And yes, that's me on bass in this video, not Michael Steele).

My first rock song I heard was I love Rock and Roll. I know many videos were lap synched back then. I have mad respect for your band and what you did for Rock music.

@Alyssa Reminiec I think Cherie was generally quite a confident singer! As with all of us, our confidence grew the more we performed.

@Skyler M. Hi, Skyler! Truly, there are no Runaways' songs that have terribly complex bass parts so I'd say pick the one that you like best. You can start by learning the chord changes and simply playing along with the beat then mix it up a bit as you get more comfortable. Bass playing is, in the end, about finding your own groove.
