Cherry Bomb
Joan Jett and the Blackhearts Lyrics


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
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Stone age love and strange sounds too
Come on baby let me get into 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
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb

Hey street boy, want some 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
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
Cherry bomb
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

@MRImage1987 ohh

@slabo ide It's as original as it gets since she helped write it when she was with the Runaways. For all intents and purposes, it's her song anyway.

@lionel oh i see

@slabo ide it is, but she was a member of one of the first girl groups ever when it was released, then she made a solo version.

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.

@Joe Black’s H&M dress I agree! I even wonder if the producers picked this song in hopes Adore would perform it.

Daniela Mead I have a strong feeling adore would pull it off I mean we’ve ALL seen her perform she’s amazing and katya... Katya would hold her own but adore would definitely win that

@Joe Black’s H&M dress do you think Katya vs Adore would've been cool for this song if Adore hadn't quit?
