"Gentleman" as written by and Tyler Patrick/back Connolly....
I'll let the door, hit you right in the face
And when the check comes, I'll make ya pay
Don't have a car, I guess you're picking me up
And in the backseat, we'll be falling in love

My only job is, to lie on this couch
And while you're working, I'll be hanging out
Now don't get mad 'cause, you knew from the start
I was an asshole who would never go far

'Cause when you're really good to girls
Give them your entire world
They end up walking away, hey hey
They don't want a stand up guy
Rather have you cheat and lie
And do something they hate

Girls don't want a gentleman
They say they do but in the end
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me
Girls don't want a gentleman
If you want to get to them
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me

Your parents cry
When you bring me around
They raised you up
Just so I could take you down

There goes your life
Right before their eyes
I'll have ya barefoot
Pregnant going out of your mind

'Cause when you're really good to girls
Give them your entire world
They end up walking away, hey hey
They don't want a stand up guy
Rather have you cheat and lie
And do something they hate

Girls don't want a gentleman
They say they do but in the end
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me
Girls don't want a gentleman
If you want to get to them
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me

I used to be a nice guy
But that don't get you anywhere
So now I am just a piece of shit, idiot
Who's too stupid to care

When you give a girl respect
Treat her like she is the best
You're nothing to her

She'd rather have you playing games
Piss her off and make her wait
If you want to do her

Girls don't want a gentleman
They say they do but in the end
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me
Girls don't want a gentleman
If you want to get to them
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me

Girls don't want a gentleman
They say they do but in the end
Girls don't want a gentleman
They want a loser like me
Girls don't want a gentleman
If you want to get to them
Girls don't want a gentleman

They want a loser like me
They want a loser like me
They want a loser like me

    General Commenteven though i'm a girl and (seriously if any guy treats a girl like this what the hell?) i have to agree with this song. every girl wants this perfect handsome sweet guy but it's the badass idiots that get every girl going. every girl wants a gentlemen but it's always going to be the bastards that treat them like crap that they'll chase and never feel complete without. i really hope i do find that "gentlemen" but seriously, more girls fall for the idiot stuff guys pull.

    "Cause when you're really good to girls, give them their entire world
    They end up walking away, hey hey
    They don't want a stand up guy
    They'd rather have you cheat and lie
    And do something they hate"

    so true...so true

    General CommentThis song is totally true of a relationship I was in this time last year. I gave her everything, and she just acted free, and cheated on me. I treated her great, but I guess she just wanted to be with a jackass...being the nice guy got me screwed over. All I know is that it took me a year to find Ms.Right.
