Some other versions of "Bad Boy"



When I was a boy I recall being told
It's hard to change your ways when you get old
I understood why but it didn't sink in
Now I got to try 'cause my luck's wearin' thin
Bad boy - you never stopped to think about tomorrow
Sad boy - it seemed so very distant at the time
Bad boy - you never thought your life would lead to sorrow
Sad boy - I thought things would work out just fine
When I was young I didn't need you to care
Whenever I'd fall there'd be somebody there
Didn't pay heed to my inner voice
Now the chips are down and I got no choice, I'm a
Bad boy - you should have played your cards a little tighter
(Oh I'm a) sad boy - I didn't realize I couldn't see
Bad boy - you never thought you'd have to pay the piper
Sad boy - thought that this couldn't happen to me
Funny how life can turn right around
One day you're up and the next day you're down
Never understand til it happens to you
Now I gotta make my plans if I'm gonna pull through
Bad boy - the mistress of your fate is by your shoulder
Sad boy - I thought that I could always get away
Bad boy - you can't get up so fast now that you're older
Sad boy - I know that I'll meet her some day
You never get away, oh no
