I don't want to worry you none, but I got the hurt on the run
I just cut out the poison that was in me so long
Watching you tear out my heart, only gave me the last laugh
Watching you tear out your hair, is gonna be the best part

Oh, I've been shaken down by a spiteful child
I've slapped a worried frown on that evil smile
I've been taken down by a spiteful child
I've turned the tables round and it drives you wild

Oh, you spiteful child

You'd better be ready to run, now I've got you under the gun
I put my money on vengeance, before this race had begun
Breaking the spirit in me, only added to your conceit
Playing you at your own game, is going to make it complete

Oh, I've been shaken down by a spiteful child
Turn the tables round and it drives you wild

Oh, you spiteful child

I don't want to worry you none, but I got the hurt on the run
I just cut out the poison that was in me so long
Watching you tear out my heart, only gave me the last laugh
Watching you tear out your hair, is gonna be the best part

Oh, I've been shaken down by a spiteful child
I've slapped a worried frown on that evil smile
I've been taken down by a spiteful child
I've turned the tables round and it drives you wild

Oh, you spiteful child

Spiteful
Spiteful
Spiteful

Spiteful
Spiteful
Spiteful

Saying your spiteful
Beautiful spiteful
Spiteful
