Lyrics[]

You're a bad influence
And I'm in trouble
You got me powered up
On the double

Ooh, ooh, ooh
If you wanna do what I wanna do
Then we're going down, down, down
Ooh, ooh, ooh
If you come through for what I wanna do
Then we're going down, down, down

And if you feel like I feel
Put your hearts up
Put your hearts up
We've got love designed to kill
Put your hearts up
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control

Bass drum overload
No division
Lift me off the ground
Be my ignition

Ooh, ooh, ooh
If you wanna do what I wanna do
Then we're going down, down, down
Ooh, ooh, ooh
If you come through for what I wanna do
Then we're going down, down, down

And if you feel like I feel
Put your hearts up
Put your hearts up
We got love designed to kill
Put your hearts up
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
Put your hearts up

You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
You can't control the kids
