"The Bad Guy" as written by and Kirk Jones....
This is not a song about the one that got away
This is not a song about the girl who didn't love me
Once again I have made somebody cry
Once again, once again I am the bad guy
I am the bad guy

[Chorus]
It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down
It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down
It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down
Don't you wish I never came around

I didn't care that she'd do anything for me
I didn't care that she would sell her soul to serve me
And as the tears fall from the corners of her eyes
I walked away, I walked away cause I'm the bad guy
I am the bad guy

[Chorus]

It's not funny
It's not funny at all, no no
But your misery, your pain
I'm gonna laugh about it all
Cause I'm the bad guy
I am the bad guy
I am the bad guy

It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down
It's mean, oh yeah
It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

It's mean but I'm not sorry I let you down [Repeats]
Don't you wish I never came around [Repeats]

    General CommentThe bad guy is made from the broken hearts given to him by the women in his past. I should know.

    General CommentI think the song is being sarcastic. He broke up with a girl, and in reality, the relationship sucked; it was mostly her fault. But because he ended it, he's the bad guy. She and her friends and family are going to ignore her flaws, and just pile on him, and he expects it.
