Good Girl, Bad World
written by John Hiatt

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?

CHORUS:
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 want to kiss
You just want to 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

Look in the mirror
Where nothing comes clearer and start to cry
Start to cry
Look in the mirror
Where nothing comes clearer and I know why
I know why
I know why
I know why

CHORUS
