Music Monday: Cherry Bomb(S) edition

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

The Runaways – Cherry Bomb and John Mellencamp – Cherry Bomb

So here’s a debate at my house… which Cherry Bomb is the best Cherry Bomb???

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, want 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!

Lyrics: 

Well I lived on the outskirts of town
In an eight room farmhouse, baby
When my brothers and friends were around
There was always somethin’ doin’
Had me a couple of real nice girlfriends
Stopped by to see me every once in a while
When I think back about those days
All I can do is sit and smile
That’s when a sport was a sport
And groovin’ was groovin’
And dancin’ meant everything
We were young and we were improvin’
Laughin’ laughin’ with our friends
Holding hands meant somethin’ baby
Outside the club “Cherry Bomb”
Our hearts were really pumpin’
Say yeah yeah yeah
Say yeah yeah yeah
The winter days they last forever
And the weekends went by so quick
Went ridin’ around this little country town
We were goin’ nuts, girl, out in the sticks
One night me with my big mouth
A couple guys had to put me in my place
When I see those guys these days
We just laugh and say do you remember when
That’s when a sport was a sport
And groovin’ was groovin’
And dancin’ meant everything
We were young and we were improvin’
Laughin’ laughin’ with our friends
Holding hands meant somethin’ baby
Outside the club “Cherry Bomb”
Our hearts were really pumpin’
Say yeah yeah yeah
Say yeah yeah yeah
Say yeah yeah yeah
Say yeah yeah yeah
Seventeen has turned thirty-five
I’m surprised that we’re still livin’
If we’ve done any wrong
I hope that we’re forgiven
Got a few kids of my own
And some days I still don’t know what to do
I hope that they’re not laughin’ too loud
When they hear me talkin’
Like this to you
That’s when a sport was a sport
And groovin’ was groovin’
And dancin’ meant everything
We were young and we were improvin’
Laughin’, laughin’ with our friends
Holding hands meant so much baby
Outside the club “Cherry Bomb”
Our hearts were really pumpin’
Say yeah yeah yeah
Say yeah yeah yeah

    • Hm, I may have to look that up.. although I did watch the movie about them but it’s been a while and I don’t think that was mentioned. I’ve always just thought it was pretty catch with the chchchchcherry bomb! 🙂
