Gentleman

Album: The Truth Is... (2011)
  • 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 Writer/s: DAVID BRENNER, DAVID J. BRENNER, DEAN BACK, DEAN HENNING BACK, KARA DIOGUARDI, TYLER CONNOLLY, TYLER PATRICK CONNOLLY
