Good Things Happen to Bad People lyrics


Sweet thing believe me
You'll never deceive me
You stared me down without blinking
That's when I really started thinking

You must have been running around
You must have been running around
'Cause you were smiling

Your friends say you're antsy
For something fancy
Like a caged bird that's broken free
You want to fly high and mess on me

Well, I know you've got a secret or two
Your hair's in a brand new do
And you're so happy.

Good things happen to bad people
Good things happen to bad people
But only, but only for a while

You cried the day I walked you down the aisle
And I know you've been bad
From the way you smile.

Mona Lisa, what a teaser
What's that strange cologne I'm smelling?
You know more than you're telling.

I know you've been running around
I know you've been running around
'Cause you're so happy.

Good things happen to bad people
Good things happen to bad people
But only, but only for a while

You cried the day I walked you down the aisle
And I know you've been bad
From the way you smile.

Good things happen to bad people
Good things happen to bad people
But only, but only for a while

You cried the day I walked you down the aisle
And I know you've been bad
From the way you smile.
