BAD BOY

She’s looking for a bad boy
Been down this road before
So tired of being second best
Can’t take it anymore.

Doesn’t have a decent job
He’s thirty five year!s old
Still living with his parents
But , he’s got her….. heart and soul.

Gotta know I’d treat her right
Not like the other guys
But friday nights, all by herself
She sits at home and cries.

She’s looking for a bad boy
Who knows the reasons why?
He treats her bad, he makes her sad|
Still she’s crazy bout this guy.

Barbecues and movies
Chips, burgers and hot wings
She never gets invited
She’ll never see a ring.

Never buys her dinner
Tells her to wait on him
Would rather be out with his friends 
Would rather be with them.

I got a reservation
At a hot new restaurant
Could pick her up, could take her out|
But, I’m not the one she wants.

She’s looking for a bad boy
Who knows the reasons why
He treats her bad, makes her sad
Still she’s crazy bout this guy.

Saturdays he rocks her world
She says they’re more than friends
His bedroom’s in the basement
She spends the night with him.

Make-up, and expensive shoes
She’ll be wearing a new dress
He’ll be in his dirty jeans
You know he could care less.

So what’s the fascination?
What does she see in him?
He’s like all the other guys
He’s just like one of them. 

In twenty years, she’ll look back
Won’t do her any good
She’ll recall mistakes she made
All the Should’a , Could’a , Would’s!
