Mean Lyrics

by John Mellencamp

Im not following your frame of mind
Complaining about this life all the time
Surely something good here, as the world spins by
Could you please stop being so and so mean?

This will never work out thats what you say
Its the end of the world again yesterday
When I see you coming at me Im gonna walk away
You need to stop being so mean

Your outlook is haunting us all
Like the ghost of our love down at the dark end of the hall
If you cant say nothing good then dont say nothing at all
And you need to stop being so mean

Your road seems so narrow to me
Youre a big boat up the river blowing off steam
My head is spinning from your company
Could you please stop being so mean?

Im not following your frame of mind
Complaining about this life all the time
Surely something good here as the world spins by
Could you please just stop being so mean?
