"Ways to Be Wicked" is the opening song from the Disney Channel television movie, Descendants 2, Sung by Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos in Mal's imagination. In this imagined scenario, the VKs have gotten tired of the dull life in Auradon and have spelled some apples to make whoever eats them more mischievous and make life wickedly fun.

Lyrics

Mal: Wicked ways beneath the skin...
All who taste it, now join in...

Mal, Evie, Jay, & Carlos: We got all the ways to be
W-I-C-K-E-D
We got all the ways to be
W-I-C-K-E-D

Come on!
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey
Hey, hey, hey, hey

Mal: Crashing the party
Guess they lost my invitation
Friendly reminder
Got my own kind of persuasion

Carlos Looks like this place could use
A bit of misbehavior
Happily ever after
With a little flavor

Jay: We're bad to the bone
With even worse intentions
We're gonna steal the show
And leave 'em all defenseless

Evie: A fairy tale life can be
Oh-so overrated
So raise your voices and
Let's get it activated

Mal, Evie, Jay, & Carlos: Long live havin' some fun
We take what we want
There's so many ways to be wicked
With us evil lives on the right side of wrong
There's so many ways to be wicked

Apple, apple
Dip, dip
Wanna try it?
Tick, tick
Take a bite
Come on, be bold
Change the way the story's told

Mal: This time the dark is
Finally getting your attention

Evie: We're wicked by the book
And class is back in session

Jay: You like it, steal it
Gotta beat 'em to the treasure

Carlos: A rite of passage
Mal, Evie, Jay, & Carlos: Bad just doesn't get much better

Long live havin' some fun
We take what we want
There's so many ways to be wicked
With us evil lives on the right side of wrong
There's so many ways to be wicked

Mal: Mother always knows best
Evie: Show her, pass every test
Carlos: Hear her voice in my head
Jay: Evil is the
Mal, Evie, Jay, & Carlos: Only real way to win

We got all the ways to be
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
W-I-C-K-E-D
Jay: Let's go!
Mal, Evie, Jay, & Carlos: We got all the ways to be
(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
W-I-C-K-E-D

Long live havin' some fun
We take what we want
There's so many ways to be wicked
With us evil lives on the right side of wrong
There's so many ways to be wicked

Cruel and unusual
We're taking control
There's so many ways to be wicked
With us evil lives on the right side of wrong
There's so many ways to be wicked

(Hey, hey, hey, hey)
We got all the ways to be
W-I-C-K-E-D
We got all the ways to be
W-I-C-K-E-D
We got all the ways to be
W-I-C-K-E-D
We got all the ways to be
So many ways to be wicked

Trivia

  • This imagined song was likely Mal's way of coping with the stress of being royally perfect.
  • The VKs are mostly back to their original appearance in this number. There are only a few differences:
    • Mal's jacket has short sleeves and she's wearing green pants instead of purple.
    • Evie is not wearing the same blue jacket from Rotten to the Core.
    • Carlos has his hair smoothed out, which is almost how it's actually styled outside the daydream.
