Bad Attitude
They say you never come home,

boy you been drivin' too fast

When you gonna shape up,

how long is this gonna last



You may be laughin' today,

but listen to some good advice

An' take a look at tomorrow

in a workin' man's weary eyes



You gotta pick a career,

go for the gold

Smile for the camera,

do what you're told

Well you can take away the ladder 'cos I ain't gonna climb it

If there's a stairway to heaven I swear I'm gonna find it



Well there are winners and outlaws and leaders and lovers

Behind every man in the news

And one thing I know is behind everyone

there's a boy who had nothin' to lose

Behind every man who has somethin' to say

There's a boy who had nothin' to prove



An' every hero was once,

every villain was once

just a boy with a bad attitude



Every hero was once,

every villain was once

just a boy with a bad attitude



She says you never call,

how come you're actin' so tough

You either hold me too tight,

or you don't hold me enough



Don't be afraid of me angel,

I ain't about to clip your wings

Just put your feet on the ground

and your arms around the real thing



You gotta love me for keeps,

feather the nest

Plan for the future,

an' gimme your best

Boy we're never gonna have a normal family life

Steamin' up and down the speedway on the back a' your bike



Well there are winners and outlaws and leaders and lovers

Behind every man in the news

And one thing I know is behind everyone

there's a boy who had nothin' to lose

Behind every man who has somethin' to say

There's a boy who had nothin' to prove-aca
