They say you never come home, boy you been drivin' too fast
When you gonna shape up, how long is this gonna last
You may be laughin' today, but listen to some good advice
An' take a look at tomorrow in a workin' man's weary eyes
You gotta pick a carreer, go for the gold
Smile for the camera, do what you're told
Well you can take away the ladder 'cos I ain't gonna climb it
If there's a stairway to heaven I swear I'm gonna find it

Well there are winners and outlaws and leaders and lovers
Behind every man in the news
And one thing I know is behind everyone there's a boy who had nothin' to lose
Behind every man who has somethin' to say
There's a boy who had nothin' to prove
An' every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude
Every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude

She says you never call, how come you're actin' so tough
You either hold me too tight, or you don't hold me enough
Don't be afraid of me angel, I ain't about to clip your wings
Just put your feet on the ground and your arms around the real thing

You gotta love me for keeps, feather the nest
Plan for the future, an' gimme your best
Boy we're never gonna have a normal family life
Steamin' up and down the speedway on the back a' your bike

Well there are winners and outlaws and leaders and lovers
Behind every man in the news
And one thing I know is behind everyone there's a boy who had nothin' to lose
Behind every man who has somethin' to say
There's a boy who had nothin' to prove
An' every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude
Every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude

Bad attitude, you got us tearin' our hair
Such a bad attitude, boy you just don't seem to care
We try to lay down the rules, but you were born to refuse
What's the world gonna do with a boy like you
You got it bad, you got a bad attitude

You try to lay down the rules, well I was born to refuse
What's the world gonna do with a man like you
You got a bad - no, you got a bad, you got a bad - ooh, you got a bad
You got a bad - no, you got a bad, you got a bad attitude

Every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude
Every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy

Well there are winners and outlaws and leaders and lovers
Behind every man in the news
And one thing I know is behind everyone there's a boy who had nothin' to lose
Behind every man who has somethin' to say
There's a boy who had nothin' to prove
An' every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude
Every hero was once, every villain was once just a boy with a bad attitude

Oh, you got a bad, ooh, you got a bad, oh, you got a bad attitude
No, you got a bad, you got a bad, you got a bad attitude
