Good Girls is a song by 5 Seconds of Summer from their self-titled debut album. It is the third track on the album. A studio version of "Good Girls" was leaked into Tumblr upon the announcement of the album. It was immediately available to download when the album was pre-ordered on iTunes in the United Kingdom. It was announced as the fourth single from the album on October 7, 2014.

Critical ReceptionEdit

On July 22, 2014 in a track-by-track Billboard review, writer Jason Lipshutz stated: "Crashing guitars soundtrack the casually delivered verses of "Good Girls," as the 5SOS boys snicker about a girl who "studies hard in her room/At least that's what her parents assume." Song number three on the album boasts a third straight ace chorus, with the cheeky line "Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught" serving as the fulcrum." [1]

Live PerformancesEdit

5 Seconds of Summer performed "Good Girls" on the Australian version of The X Factor's live results show on October 6, 2014. They also performed the single "Good Girls" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Music VideoEdit

Last October 7, 2014, the band started to tease the music video by direct messaging several fans on Twitter about the release date of the video. They then tweeted the first teaser to fans who did not get the direct message on their Twitter account. On October 8, 2014, they tweeted the second teaser of the music video. The video was released on 10 October 2014.

LyricsEdit

Michael
(Do, do do, do do, do do)

Michael
She's a good girl
She's Daddy's favourite
He's saved for Harvard
He knows she'll make it
She's good at school
She's never truant
She can speak French
I think she's fluent

Calum
Cause every night she studies hard in her room

Michael
At least that's what her parents assume

Calum
But she sneaks out the window to meet with her boyfriend
Here's what she told me the time that I caught her

All
She said to me, forget what you thought
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
So just turn around and forget what you saw
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
(Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh oooohhh ooooooooh oh)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

All
(Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh oooohhh ooooooh oooh)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

Calum
She's a good girl
A straight A student
She's really into all that self-improvement

Michael
I swear she lives in that library

All
(oooh ooohh oooh ooooh)

Calum
But if you ask her she'll say

Michael
(Girly voice) That's where you'll find me

Luke
But if you look, then you won't find her there
She may be clever but she just acts too square
'Cause in the back of the room, where nobody looks
She'll be with her boyfriend

Michael
She's not reading books

All
She said to me, forget what you thought
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
So just turn around and forget what you saw
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

Luke
(Do, do do, do do, do, do, do, do do)
Good girls are bad girls and good girls are bad girls!

All
(Do, do do, do do, do, do, do, do do)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught!

Ashton
She's a good girl
Hasn't been caught (she's a good girl)
She's a good girl (she's a good girl)
Hasn't been caught (caught, caught, caught, caught, caught, caught, caught)

All
She said to me, forget what you thought
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
So just turn around and forget what you saw
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

Luke
She said to me, (she said to me) forget what you thought
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
So just turn around and forget what you saw
'Cause good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

All
(Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh oooohhh ooooooh oooh)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

All
(Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh oooohhh ooooooh oooh)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught

All
(Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh
Oooohhh ooooooh oooh
Ooh oh oh oh ooohhhh oh oooohhh ooooooh oooh)

Luke
Good girls are bad girls that haven't been caught
