The boy's no good.
Yeah, he's a fuckin' hood.
He won't treat you like he should.
I heard he's making time with this friend of mine.
I heard he's talking trash.
I saw that kid last night.
He's starting fights.
He's got that nervous twitching.
He's just not the kid for you.
He's all dressed up.
He's got nothing to do, but he's got something.
He's cool as anything, but he's not good.
That boy's a fucking creep.

The boy's no good.
Yeah, he's a hood.
He won't treat you like he should.
I said the boy's no good.
He's a hood.
He won't treat you like I would.
I said the boy's no good.
Listen to what I say.
The boy's no good.
He'll fuck you anyway.
The boy's no good.
I'm gonna have a talk... the boy's no good.
The boy's no fuckin' good.

    Lyric CorrectionInstead of 'I'm gonna have a talk' it's 'I'm gonna have my say'.

    My InterpretationBasically it's a guy saying to a girl he likes that she's better off with him than with her current boyfriend who is, in the singer's view, a scum bag. Tim sang this freakin' amazingly, as always.

    General CommentThe song is about a boy...that is not good. He doesn't believe the boy is good enough for her and he doesn;t deserve her.

    General CommentThis is one of their songs that I don't really like, but I still listen to it.... Obviously, this song is about "a boy" who isn't good enough for a girl.
