  • 8 o'clock, Monday night and I'm waitin'
    To finally talk to a girl a little cooler than me.
    Her name is Nona, she's a rocker with a nose ring,
    She wears a two way, but I'm not quite sure what that means.

    And when she walks,
    All the wind blows and the angels sing.
    But she doesn't notice me!

    'Cause she is watchin' wrestling
    Creamin' over tough guys
    Listenin' to rap metal
    Turntables in her eyes

    It's like a bad movie
    She is lookin' through me
    If you were me, then you'd be
    Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
    As I fail miserably,
    Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.
    She's the girl all the bad guys want!

    She likes the godsmack and I like agent orange
    Her CD changer's full of singers that are mad at their dad
    She says she'd like to score some reefer and a forty
    She'll never know that I'm the best that she'll never have

    And when she walks,
    All the wind blows and the angels sing.
    She'll never notice me!

    'Cause she is watchin' wrestling
    Creamin' over tough guys
    Listenin' to rap metal
    Turntables in her eyes

    She likes 'em with a mustache
    Racetrack season pass
    Drivin' in a Trans-Am
    Does a mullet make a man?

    It's like a bad movie
    She is lookin' through me
    If you were me, then you'd be
    Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
    As I fail miserably,
    Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.
    She's the girl all the bad guys want!
    She's the girl all the bad guys want!
    She's the girl all the bad guys want!

    There she goes again
    With fishnets on, and dreadlocks in her hair
    She broke my heart, I want to be sedated
    All I wanted was to see her naked!

    Now I am watchin' wrestling
    Tryin' to be a tough guy
    Listenin' to rap metal
    Turntables in my eyes
    I can't grow a mustache
    And I ain't got no season pass
    All I got's a moped, moped, moped

    It's like a bad movie
    She is lookin' through me
    If you were me, then you'd be
    Screamin' "Someone shoot me!"
    As I fail miserably,
    Tryin' to get the girl all the bad guys want.

    'Cause she's the girl all the bad guys want!
    'Cause she's the girl all the bad guys want!
    'Cause she's the girl all the bad guys want!
    'Cause she's the girl all the bad guys want! (There she goes again)
    'Cause she's the girl all the bad guys want! (There she goes again) Writer/s: Butch Walker, Jaret Reddick

  • Mary from Richmond, Vathis song is so great. I love how they change the words to the refraim: "she's watchin' wresting screamin'over tough guys listening to rap metal turn tables in her eyes. Likes em with a mustache, racetrack season-pass, drivin' in a trans am, does a mullet make a man?" becomes "I'm watchin' wrestling tryin' to be a tough guy listing to rap metal turn tables in my eyes i can't grow a mustache, and i ain't got no season pass; all i got's a Moped." haha!
