(Girl, you've been treatin' me so bad - and I think I like it)
(Girl, I don't think you understand, so I'm gonna tell ya how it is)

You can do anything ya want with me - You can lie and I'll believe
You can tell me stay and I'll be waiting
To be the one who wants to hold your hand - To be your foolish man
And when ya do me wrong I'll say I'm sorry

Someday when ya want me and ya lose the man ya left behind
I say it in my mind but never say it out loud
We both know deep down I'll be the one who's still around
It's breaking all my spirit down and lifting you so high

It's a cruel cruel world
And I've got a girl that shows me it's true
In a world so unkind,
I've got to ask why I'd want to stay with you
'Cause I hate me more than I love you

Self esteem lower than snow at 12 below - Ain't never seen nice, so bad is all I know
It's hard to look up when all I feel is down - Explain my pains through instruments with sound
All these years of searchin' for the right answers - That you never helped me come closer to
Was it my fault bein' a naive romancer - I took it how it came - I should have been a chancer
Now I open my eyes and see that you're controllin' all of me
It's time to make a choice - but what should I do - When I hate me more than I love you


It's a cruel cruel world
And I've got a girl that shows me it's true
In a world so unkind,
Please don't ask me why - I just might tell the truth
I hate me more than I love you

Ya never showed me any love before
Just a game and ya played me like a cheap hand
The more ya treat me like an open door
The more I like it and keep on crawlin' back again
Draggin' me and my dignity across the floor to ya now,
So you can kick me when I'm down
Oh, use me and abuse me - you're never gonna lose me
I can't let go of anything

Punish me, won't ya punish me - I don't deserve all the better things
Punish me, won't ya punish me - I can't forgive an imperfect me

Punish me, won't ya punish me - I don't deserve all the better things
Punish me, won't ya punish me - I can't forgive an imperfect me

It's a cruel cruel world
And I've got a girl that shows me it's true
In a world so unkind,
I made up my mind - I've got to tell you the truth
I hate me more than I love you
I hate me more than I love you

(Ah, yeah - there ya have it baby - all for you)
(Nothin' else I can say will ever be so true)
