Nice Guys Finish Last - Cobra Starship

I was just a kid
Working for the man for the first time
He said, "Listen, kid, you better hear my advice
Treat 'em like dirt
They'll stick forever to the bottom of your shoe"

I said, "Mr. Man, that ain't nice
Gotta treat a girl right
Take her our, wine and dine her
Always be polite"
"Kid, all good
Just do you, but soon you'll see
She don't want a goody two-shoes"

Boy, you're just a goody two, goody two-shoes
You're just a goody two, two-shoes

You got style, you got grace
But then you try so hard
She just laughs in your face
And you're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)
I treat her bad, she loves me good
(So good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
'Cause you're a nice guy
But that just won't do
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)

Listen, kid, you hear them sirens coming for me?
But when I get downtown, she will already be
Postin' bail in her favorite dress
Smiling at me, because I'm no good

You can buy her everything she likes
And I'm sure she'll be obliged
To let you steal a kiss
And maybe even spend the night
Kid, all good
Just know that she'll be thinking of me
Even when she's with you

Boy, you're just a goody two, goody two-shoes
You're just a goody two, two-shoes

You got style, you got grace
But then you try so hard
She just laughs in your face
And you're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)
I treat her bad, she loves me good
(So good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
'Cause you're a nice guy
But that just won't do
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)

Well, all right now
Single ladies
I'm gonna need your help now
Tell us what you want us to do now
Tell us what you want us to do now
I need help, girls
You're a bad boy
I sure need help now
(Help now)
So bad, so bad
So good, so good
So bad, bad
Good, good

Goddamn, you got style, you got grace
You try so hard, she's just lost in your face
And you're a nice guy, wrong attitude
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)
I treat her good, she loves me good
(So good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
'Cause you're a nice guy
But that just won't do
She want a bad boy
(Bad boys, all you want is bad boys)

Boy, you're just a goody two, goody two-shoes
You're just a goody two, two-shoes
