"Next Contestant" as written by and Chad/kroeger Kroeger....
I judge by what she's wearing
Just how many heads I'm tearing
Off of assholes keep coming on to her
Each night seems like it's getting worse
And I wish she'd take the night off
So I don't have to fight off
Every asshole coming on to her
It happens every night she works
They'll go and ask the DJ
Find out just what would she say
If they all tried coming on to her
Don't they know it's never going to work?
They think they'll get it inside her
With every drink they buy her
As they all try coming on to her
This time somebody's getting hurt

Here comes the next contestant
Is that your hand on my girlfriend?
Is that your hand?
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
There goes the next contestant

I even fear the ladies
They're cool but twice as crazy
Just as bad for coming on to her
Don't they know it's never gonna work?
Each time she bats an eyelash
Somebody's grabbing her ass
Everyone is coming on to her
This time somebody's getting hurt

Here comes the next contestant
Is that your hand on my girlfriend?
Is that your hand?
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
There goes the next contestant

I'm hating what she's wearing
Everybody here keeps staring
Can't wait till they get what they deserve
This time somebody's getting hurt

Here comes the next contestant
Is that your hand on my girlfriend?
Is that your hand?
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
I wish you'd do it again
I'll watch you leave here limping
I wish you'd do it again
Each night seems like it's getting worse
I wish you'd do it again
This time somebody's getting hurt

There goes the next contestant

    General CommentGREAT SONG!!! i got the album today, and this song is how i feel about my gf, everyone keeps trying to come onto her, and i'm over protective sometimes, so i wanna bash any guy who touches her, but yes, this song is about a guy who is very over protective of his gf

    General CommentI was saving up for this album, then my sister goes and buys it. Oh well money for me i guess. I think its every bit within his right to be a jealous bastard. The chorus of this song is a bit funny though. Is that. Your hand. On my. (etc etc.) that bits a little wierd but still i love the song, kinda obvious what its about

    General CommentBoy do you have the lyrics messed up. I have no idea where you got them from, but on the CD, it is completely different.

    General CommentReally awesome song. Its a bit blunt on the jealousy issue, but he does it very well, its almost scary. ^_^ All in all the album rocked more than i thought it would, no offense, but Photograph brought my hopes down alot. -_-'
