I don't understand your thinking
I thought we were happy guess I was mistaken
Give you all my love and attention
Say you don't want me 'cause something's missing
Gave you all you wanted and you know it's true
All that I was doing meant nothing to you
And if I told you why we'd probably be cool
But I was so good to you so good

But you want a guy that's real nice
That will spend his dough and his time
But then you change and want to thug guy
Who won't act right
Stay with him but he makes you cry
Tell me why it doesn't pay to be the good guy
'cause every time

(Hook)
I try to be the good guy
You take me for granted throw me to the side
Rather have a man that would tell you lies
Tell my why tell my why tell me why
Why should I be the good guy
And get left for the man who don't treat you right
There's nothing good in being good guys
Tell me why tell me why tell me why
I don't understand your reasons
Say you love me then say your leaving
The situation here has really changed me
Don't want to fall in love 'cause you played me
You gotta be kidding me, trying to get rid of me
I did more to you than any brother would do
I was good to you so good

Plus you want to guy that's real nice
That will spend all his dough and his time
But then you change your mind and want to thug guy
Who won't act right
It doesn't pay to be the good guy
You callin' me late nights
Tellin me how he won't act right

Stay with him but he makes you cry

(Hook)

I was good 2 you
Played a fool 4 you
You messed it up for the next girl in my life
I'll never do the things I do for you
Our love just wasn't true
I was so good, so good to you, so good to you
Every time

(Hook x2)
