Your gonna have to take him away
Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy

And now he's sleeping at home
In his rocket ship bed
Why did being good feel so damn bad
He stares at picture of his runaway dad
Shining his flashlight steady
The kids such an easy target
Without a rebel bone
You're so compliant
Quiet as a stepping stone
Did he give you the love
You've been yearning for
Did he give you what you need

Your gonna have to take him away
'Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy

Have you heard the headlines
On blackberry street
There lived a kid out there, and only 5, 2, 3
He came home smelling of old shaving cream
He began to act out
He became a little devil
BB gun to the bird
And he spit out the f, s, and d words
His momma at the priest
And the priest replied
"He used to be an angel mam,
yeah I don't know why."

Your gonna have to take him away
Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy

See you can keep a secret right? Right
I can trust you with my life? Right
I don't get no sleep at night, night
You can keep a secret right?

Your gonna have to take him away
Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy

Your gonna have to take him away
Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy

Your gonna have to take him away
Cause he don't wanna leave
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
Mommas crying out
Where's he hiding
Trying to be such a good boy, good boy
