File:Descendants Cast - Rotten to the Core
"Rotten to the Core" is the opening song from the Disney Channel movie Descendants, sung by Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos. It serves as the introduction to the villainous descendants as they wreak havoc throughout the Isle of the Lost.

Lyrics

Mal: They say I'm trouble
They say I'm bad
They say I'm evil
That makes me glad
Jay: A dirty no-good
Down to the bone
Your worst nightmare
Can't take me home
Evie: Ugh, so I've got some mischief
In my blood
Can you blame me?
I never got no love
Carlos: They think I'm callous
A low-life hood
I feel so useless
All:
Misunderstood!

Mal and Evie: Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world!

Chorus: I'm rotten to the core, core
Rotten to the core
I'm rotten to the core, core
Who could ask for more?
I'm nothing like the kid next, like the kid next door
I'm rotten to the, I'm rotten to the
I'm rotten to the core

Mal: Call me a schemer
Call me a freak
How can you say that?
I'm just... unique!
Jay: What, me? A traitor?
Ain't got your back?
Oh, we're not friends
What's up with that?
Evie: So I'm a misfit
So I'm a flirt
I broke your heart?
I made you hurt?
Carlos: The past is past
Forgive, forget
The truth is
You ain't seen nothing yet!

Mal and Evie: Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world!

(Instrumental bridge)

Chorus: I'm rotten to the core, core
Rotten to the core
I'm rotten to the core, core
Who could ask for more?
I'm nothing like the kid next, like the kid next door
I'm rotten to the, I'm rotten to the
I'm rotten to the core

Let's set it off, oh yeah...

Mirror, mirror, in the night, show a girl a little light!

They say I'm trouble
They say I'm bad
They say I'm evil
And that makes a glad

A dirty no-good
Down to the bone
Your worst nightmare
Can't take me home

So I got some mischief
in my blood
Can you blame me?
I never got no love

They think I'm callous (Ugh)
A lowlife hood (Oh yeah!)
I feel so useless
Misunderstood...

Hey!

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world...

I'm rotten to the core!
Rotten to the core!
I'm rotten to the core!
Who could ask for more?
I'm nothin' like the kid next, like the kid next door!
I'm rotten to the (core!)
I'm rotten to the....
Core!

Listen up now
Call me a schemer
Call me a freak
How can you say that?
I'm... I'm just unique

What me, a traitor?
Ain't got your back?
Are we not friends?
Ugh, what's up with that?

So I'm a misfit
So I'm a flirt
I broke your heart?
I made ya hurt?

The past is past
Forgive, forget...
The truth is...
You ain't see nothin' yet.......!

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
Welcome to my wicked world, wicked world!

I'm rotten to the core!
Rotten to the core!
I'm rotten to the core!
Who could ask for more?
I'm nothin' like the kid next, like the kid next door!...
I'm rotten to the (core!)
I'm rotten to the...
Core!

Ooh ooh ooh ooh...

Original...

Ooh ooh ooh ooh...

Unusual... (Oh, yeah!)

You could say what you want
but we'll always be...
Rotten to the core,
rotten to the core...
