lyrics

Mama raised you right
Always smile and be polite
You are the gentleman who
Held the door as she walked out on you

Since then you’ve courted every girl you find
She might stay until she sees your one-track mind

You might’ve been a good guy all your life
But you never take the blame
You can be a man
I know you have what it takes
Being mean and coming clean
No smile on your face
You might’ve been a good guy
But you made a bad mistake

You said, “Pretty please
Hop in bed, give me a squeeze”
After I quenched your thirst
You walked me out, said, “Ladies first”

At least you thanked me as I left your room
Next time you’ll repay the favor? Oh, how sweet of you

Wake up and see
You’re too kind to yourself
How could it be
That you hurt someone else
So go ahead, defend your good name
Go ahead, pretend it’s okay

You might’ve been a good guy all your life
But you never take the blame
You can be a man
I know you have what it takes
Being mean and coming clean
No smile on your face
You might've been a good guy all your life
But it's time you feel the shame
Of being a good guy who made a bad mistake
