Where is your boy tonight? I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

When I wake up
I'm willing to take my chances on
The hope I forget
That you hate him more than you notice
I wrote this for you.

You need him
I could be him.
I could be an accident, but I'm still trying.
That's more than I can say for him.

Where is your boy tonight?
I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

Someday I'll appreciate in value
Get off my ass and call you
In the meantime I'll sport
My brand new fashion of waking up with pants off
At 4 in the afternoon.

You need him
I could be him.
I could be an accident, but I'm still trying.
That's more than I can say for him

Where is your boy tonight? I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town

Where is your boy tonight? I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

Where is your boy tonight? I hope he is a gentleman.
Maybe he won't find out what I know
You were the last good thing about this part of town.

    okay kookie shut up.
    anyways. I think the meaning for this song is that he wants this chick but she has a boyfriend who she really hates && so he wants to show her that he can be better than the guy she's with now.. I think. I dunno.

    BUT I LOVE THIS SONG!

    I think it;s about him wanting the girl he is refferring to, but she doesnt see it because she's with someone already. She might not know that she hates her bf but the singer knows this. Yet, he isnt willing to interfere in the relationship like a cokcblocker :)
