never said i was nice

To tease em, and thrill em, to torture and kill em,
Is her delight, they say

Hard Hearted Hannah. Lyrics by Jack Yellen, Bob Bigelow, and Charles Bates

never said
i was nice
you got some sugar
with your spice
now it’s time
to run along
here’s a dime
to call your mom

never said
i was nice
love isn’t always
thank your stars
you got to be
with someone
as cool as me

never said
i was nice
please don’t make
me tell you twice
it shouldn’t be hard
to find the door
you don’t amuse
me anymore

by Richard W. Bray
