Lyrics[]

MALEFICENT:
I was once like you, my child, slightly insecure
Argued with my mother, too
Thought I was mature
But I put my heart aside and I used my head
Now I think it's time you learned
What dear old mama said:

Don't you wanna be evil like me?
Don't you wanna be mean?
Don't you wanna make mischief your daily routine?
Well, you can spend your life attending to the poor
But when you're evil, doing less is doing more

MAL:
(spoken) But in this case, wouldn't "doing less" be staying home?

MALEFICENT:
(sung) Don't you wanna be ruthless and rotten and mad?
Don't you wanna be very, very good at being bad?

MAL:
(spoken) But I'm so mean! Aren't I? After all, I learned from the worst.

MALEFICENT:
There's "mean" and then there's "truly evil". Auradon is the big leagues, kid. Time to step it up.

(sung) I have tried my whole life long
To do the worst I can
Clawed my way to victory
Built my master plan
Now the time has come, my dear
For you to take your place
Promise me you'll try to be
An absolute disgrace

MAL:
(spoken) ...I guess?

MALEFICENT:
(sung) Don't you wanna be evil like me?
Don't you wanna be cruel?
Don't you wanna be nasty and brutal and cool?
Then when you grab that wand
That's when your rein begins
Who wants an evil queen without a sack of sins?
Don't you wanna be heartless and hardened as stone?
Don't you wanna be finger-lickin' evil to the bone?

MAL:
(spoken) I do, but -

MALEFICENT:
But what?!

(sung) This is not for us to ponder
This was pre-ordained
You and I shall rule together
Freedom soon regained
Mistress of the universe
Powerful and strong
Daughter, hear me, help me, join me
Won't you sing along?!

MALEFICENT AND MAL:
Now we're gonna be evil
It's true, never gonna think twice

MAL:
And we're gonna be spiteful...

MALEFICENT:
Yes, spiteful - that's nice!
Once you've made certain
That our future's safe and sure

MALEFICENT AND MAL:
This mother-daughter act is going out on tour!
If you wanna be evil and awful and free...

MALEFICENT:
Then you should thank your lucky star
That you were born the girl you are
The daughter of an evilicious queen

MALEFICENT AND MAL:
Like me!
