Mean Boy
Mean Boy
© 2013 Bruce Mills (SOCAN)

Who is the mean boy?
Who is the mean boy?

Big man on the street
Is moving to the beat
That he got going on inside his head
He got the attitude
And what he got to do
Is prove to you he's always in control
What you see is what you get
And he ain't feeling no regret
Ain't nothing going down what he don't know
He's just the mean boy
He's just the mean boy

The man's neighbourhood
Got his groove on going good
Long as traffic keeps flowing his direction
Got his eye on the scene
Packing heat in his jeans
You can bet he's dealing out in cash collection
What he says is what you hear
And what you hear is what you do
When he calls your name you better go
Cause he's the mean boy
He's just the mean boy

Might be thinking otherwise but
You don't own the neighbourhood
Tough guys think that what you got
Is something special but it's not
As a matter of fact you ain't no good
For nothing except taking out the trash

Hanging where you don't belong
Acting like you're big and strong
Some dude's gonna come along
Mess you up and do some harm
And haul your sorry ass all the way
To the nasty side of down-town

Un-satisfy your pretty face
And shut your mouth and walk away
Before somebody shoots you dead
And I ain't talking through my head
Cause everybody that you know
Is gonna celebrate you going down
