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

So fun fact: when I was like 2 my parents took me to a Joan Jett concert and I screamed these lyrics for a couple weeks afterwards

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

@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.

@PAUSE 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 love how people say they love this over the original. I do too. But the reason she gives it a better attitude is because she wrote the song. Cheri was and is a great singer but she was just a blonde face for the band. They wanted a blonde bombshell to be the lead. But every song Joan wrote she's just natural for. You could tell Cheri was just the voice

Laurie Casano

So true.
