nice guys finish last lyrics – cobra starship

“nice guys finish last”

i was just a kid workin’ for the man for the first time
he said “listen kid, you’d better hear my advice:
treat ’em like dirt, they’ll stick
forever to the bottom of your shoe”
oooo

i said “mr. man, that ain’t nice
you gotta treat a girl right
take her out, wine and dine her, always be polite”
“kid, all good-just do you but soon you’ll see
she don’t want no 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 kid you try so hard
she just laughs in your face
yeah you’re a nice guy
with the wrong att*tude
she want a bad boy
(bad boys, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)
i treat her bad, she loves me 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, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)

listen kid, you hear them sirens comin’ for me?
but when i get downtown she will already be
postin’ bail in her favorite dress
smilin’ 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,
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 kid you try so hard
she just laughs in your face
yeah you’re a nice guy
with the wrong att*tude
she want a bad boy
(bad boys, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)
i treat her bad, she loves me 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, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)

whoa, alright now
single ladies (yeah)
i’m gonna need your help now
(tell us what ya want us to do now [x2])
i need help girls
(you’re a bad boy)
i say i need help now (help now)
so bad (so bad)
so good (so good)
so bad (bad)
good (good)

god d*mn, you got style, you got grace
kid you try so hard
she just laughs in your face
yeah you’re a nice guy
with the wrong att*tude
she want a bad boy
(bad boys, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)
i treat her bad, she loves me 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, bad boys, all we want is bad boys!)

boy, you’re just a goody two, goody two shoes
you’re just a goody two, two shoes!
