Cherry Bomb (2:33)

Cover of The Runaways

From The Runaways and 31 other releases

According to the Cherry Bomb Songfacts, the title is a play on the name of their lead singer Cherie Currie, who was just 16 when this song was released. A “Cherry Bomb” is a small explosive device popular with kids, but in the context of this song, it means an underage girl who is lots of trouble - in this case taunting her parents and other adults with suggestions of promiscuity and bad behavior.

Can't stay at home, can't stay at school
Old folks say, ya poor little fool
Down the street, I'm the girl next door
I'm the fox you've been waiting for
