"Nice Guys Finish Last" as written by Gabe Saporta, Raphael Akinyemi and Nikeshia Michelle....
I was just a kid working for the man for the first time
Said listen kid you better heed my advice
Treat 'em like dirt
They stick forever to the bottom of your shoe oh
I said Mr. Man that ain't nice
You gotta treat a girl right
Take her out wine and dine her
Always be polite
Kid, no good does do you
But soon you'll see she don't want no goody two shoes

Boy just a goody two
Goody two shoes
Just a goody two
Two shoes

You got style, you got grace
Kid you try so hard she just laughs in your face
You're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)
I treat her dirt she loves me good (so good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
Cause you're a nice guy but that just won't do
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)

Listen kid you hear them sirens coming for me
But when I get downtown she will already be
Posting bail in her favorite dress
Smiling at me because I'm no good
You can buy her everything she likes, and I'm sure she'll be alright
But just you feel it, cause baby even spend the night
Kid are good but just know that she'll be thinking of me,
Even when she's with you

Boy just a goody two
Goody two shoes
Just a goody two
Two shoes

You got style, you got grace
Kid you try so hard she just laughs in your face
You're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)
I treat her dirt she loves me good (so good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
Cause you're a nice guy but that just won't do
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)

Whoo alright now
Singles ladies (yeah)
I'm gonna need your help now
(tell us whatcha want us to do now)
(tell us whatcha want us to do now)
I need help your girls
(you're a bad boy)
I say I need help now (help now)
So bad (so bad)
So good (so good)
So bad (bad)
Good (good)

God damn you got style you got grace
Kid you try so hard she just laughs in your face
You're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)
I treat her dirt she loves me good(so good)
And I just hate to have to tell you
Cause you're a nice guy but that just won't do
She want (bad boys bad boys all we want is bad boys)

Boy just a goody two
Goody two shoes
Just a goody two
Two shoes

    General CommentFrom the booklet:

    I was just a kid workin' for the man fir the first time
    He said "listen kid, you'd better hear my advice:
    Treat 'em like dirt, They'll stick forever to the bottom of your shoe"

    I said "Mr. Man, that ain't nice, you gotta treat a girl right
    Take her our, wine and dine her, always be polite."
    "Kid all good - just do you, but soon you'll see
    she don't want no goody two shoes."

    Boy you're just a goody two, goody two shoes
    You're just a goody two, two shoes!

    You got style, you got grace
    But kid you try so hard she just laughs in your face
    Yeah you're a nice guy with the wrong attitude
    She want a bad boy

    I treat her bad, she loves me good
    And I just hate to have to tell you, cause you're a nice guy
    But that just won't do, she wants a bad boy

    Listen kidm you hear then sirens comin' for me?
    But when I get downtown, she will already be
    Postin' bail in her favorite dress
    Smilin' at me because I'm no good

    Youcan buy her everything she likes, and I'm sure she'll be obliged
    To let you steal a kiss, maybe even spend the night
    Kid, all good - just know that she'll be thinking of me
    Even when she's with you
