Put your make up on
Though your face is long
Clothes that fit you wrong
What's wrong with you?

Last night's Romeo
He just had to go
I don't wanna know
What else is new?

Good girl, bad world
Didn't you say?
Good girl, bad world
Can't get away

From boys who unfurl
Flags that don't pay
You're a good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to play

They just wanna kiss
You just wanna miss
Sometimes I think you wish
You were a boy

Then you could stand around
Act just like a clown
Put those good girls down
Like they were toys

Good girl, bad world
Didn't you say?
Good girl, bad world
Can't get away

From boys who unfurl
Flags that don't pay
You're a good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to play

Look in your mirror
Where nothing comes
Clearer and start to cry
Start to cry

Look in your mirror
And nothing comes
Clearer and I know why
I know why, I know why

Good girl, bad world
Didn't you say?
Good girl, bad world
Can't get away

From boys who unfurl
Flags that don't pay
You're a good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to play

Good girl, bad world
Didn't you say?
Good girl, bad world
Can't get away

From boys who unfurl
Flags that don't pay
You're a good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to

Good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to
Good girl in a bad world
I'll take her, now, come out to play
