This song has a long dance break. For that part, we will be able to show a powerful performance. In the second verse, there’s rapping, but it also includes some awesome choreography. If you watch our performance, it will leave a good impression and perhaps make people want to watch it more.

Lyrics

 Jisoo   Jennie   Rosé   Lisa 

착한 얼굴에 그렇지 못한 태도

가녀린 몸매 속 가려진 Volume은 두 배로
거침없이 직진 굳이 보진 않지 눈치

Black 하면 Pink 우린 예쁘장한 Savage


원할 땐 대놓고 뺏지

넌 뭘 해도 칼로 물 베기
두 손엔 가득한 Fat check
궁금하면 해봐 Fact check
눈 높인 꼭대기
물 만난 물고기
좀 독해 난 Toxic

You 혹해 I’m foxy


두 번 생각해

흔한 남들처럼 착한 척은 못 하니까
착각하지 마

쉽게 웃어주는 건 날 위한 거야


아직은 잘 모르겠지

굳이 원하면 Test me
넌 불 보듯이 뻔해

만만한 걸 원했다면


Oh wait til’ I do what I do

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du


지금 내가 걸어가는 거린

BLACKPINK 4 way 사거리
동서남북 사방으로 Run it
너네 버킷리스트 싹 다 I bought it
널 당기는 것도 멀리 밀치는 것도
제멋대로 하는 Bad girl
좋건 싫어하건 누가 뭐라 하던

When the bass drop it’s another banger


두 번 생각해

흔한 남들처럼 착한 척은 못 하니까
착각하지 마

쉽게 웃어주는 건 날 위한 거야


아직은 잘 모르겠지

굳이 원하면 Test me
넌 불 보듯이 뻔해

만만한 걸 원했다면


Oh wait til’ I do what I do

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du
Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du

tteugeoweo tteugeoweo tteugeoweo Like fire

tteugeoweo tteugeoweo tteugeoweo Like fire

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du

My face is kind but not my attitude

Thin body frames with hidden volume twice as much
We go forward without holding back, no need to be cautious

Black then Pink, we’re pretty savages


If I want it, I’ll take it from you straight up

Even if you want something, it’s like cutting water with a sword
In my hands is a fat check
If you’re curious, do a fact check
My standards are way up top
Like a fish in water
I’m kind of intense, I’m toxic

You fall for me, I’m foxy


Think twice

Cuz I can’t act nice like everyone else
Don’t misunderstand

My easy smiles are for myself


You still don’t really know

But if you really want me, test me
It’s obvious, like looking at fire

If you wanted something easy


Oh wait til’ I do what I do

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du


The path I’m walking on right now

Is a BLACKPINK 4 way intersection
East, West, North, South, all around, we run it
All of your bucket lists, I bought it all
When I pull you, I do it from far away
When I push you away, I do it legit like a bad girl
Whether you like it or not, no matter what anyone says

When the bass drop it’s another banger


Think twice

Cuz I can’t act nice like everyone else
Don’t misunderstand

My easy smiles are for myself


You still don’t really know

But if you really want me, test me
It’s obvious, like looking at fire

If you wanted something easy


Oh wait til’ I do what I do

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du
Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du


What you gonna do

When I come come through with that that uh uh huh
What you gonna do

When I come come through with that that uh uh huh


Hot hot hot like fire
Hot hot hot like fire


Hot hot hot like fire

Hot hot hot like fire

Hit you with that ddu-du ddu-du du
