The Ballad of Mister Nice Guy

Bad boys in the air bad boys everywhere

Girls with broken hearts as if they were unaware

But Mister Nice Guy sits all alone and stares

Seems like no one really cares,

 

This is the ballad of Mister Nice Guy

With desires that never die

He only dreams with a sigh

Wondering if true love is just a lie,

 

She will fall for Mister Slick

He always knows all the tricks

Knows how to use those smoke and mirrors

He plays upon her passion and her fears,

 

For every woman whose heart he breaks

She’s just a little girl with dolls and cakes

No man ever showed her mercy for goodness sakes

No bad boy gives more than he takes,

 

Then along comes Mister Nice Guy with a heart

She makes him pay right from the start

For all the pain she ever knew from before

Unknowingly she tries to settle the score,

 

But it’s with the one who never lied

The one who really tried

“Hey, I’m Mister Nice Guy,” he cried

No worries, it was all about her pride,

This is the ballad of Mister Nice Guy

With desires that never die

He only dreams with a sigh

Wondering if true love is just a lie,

 

The lost years that were invested

In a love that for some reason was contested

Feelings and memories now become congested

Mister Nice Guy is becoming time tested,

 

Like exhaustion on a summer’s day

He feels himself slowly giving way

To the inescapable conclusion gone astray

That it makes no difference what you do or say,

 

Mister Nice Guy is slowly coming apart

There’s no sweet angel to save his heart

Too innocent to have known from the start

In the ways of the world he wasn’t too smart,

 

This is the ballad of Mister Nice Guy

With desires that never die

He only dreams with a sigh

Wondering if true love is just a lie.
