Sometimes I can be perfectly sweet
Got this sugary me stuffed up in my sleeve
And I talk of ponies and rainbows and things
And I'm just who you want me to be
But like most creatures down here on the ground
I'm composed of the elements moving around
And I grow and change and I shift and I switch
And it turns out I'm actually kind of a b****
But that only happens when I get provoked
By some piece of s*** a**hole we all sadly know
And I sit and I write while reminding you all
That mean songs are still better than going postal

And that guy's an a**hole
That girl's a b****
Baby it's natural
No gettin' away from it
So sing it out with me
And then let it go
F*** that guy he's just an a**hole
Oh a**hole
A**hole
A**hole

I see I've surprised you with some of my words
And I know that surprises, while fun, still can hurt
And I hate to think that I ruined the day
Of the dick and the queen of the high horse parade
But I'm sick and tired of your poisonous ways
Your toxin wasting perfectly good space
And I say what I think
'Cause it's more economic than drugs or a drink

That guy's an a**hole
That girl's a b****
Baby it's natural
No gettin' away from it
So sing it out with me
And then let it go
F*** that guy he's just an a**hole

And I won't let him in
Under my skin
You're a sad sack of s***
That's pathetic
Just a festering sore
Who will never be more than that
If I don't let it

And that guy's an a**hole
That girl's a b****
Baby it's natural
No gettin' away from it
So sing it out with me
And then let it go
F*** that guy he's just an a**hole

That guy's an a**hole
That girl's a b****
Baby it's natural
No gettin' away from it
So sing it out with me
And then let it go
F*** that guy he's just an a**hole
