Steve Poltz – Nice Guys Finish Last lyrics

On a grassy knoll they laid him down
And I bet he's still grumbling underground
On a diamond, that's where I remember him best
Sticking his nose in an umpire's chest

'cause they're paid too much today
Man, I know that's what leo would say
And they need a kick in the ass
'cause nice guys finish last
Nice guys finish last

The "say hey" kid's gonna miss you bad
And I'm sure there were times when you made him mad
He broke in the leagues back in '51
And you treated him like he was your son

'cause they're paid too much today
Man, I know that's what leo would say
And they need a kick in the ass
'cause nice guys finish last
Nice guys finish last

You'd throw your tantrums like a little girl
Got to see the shot heard around the world
The pictures show you hugging bobby thompson's neck
Back when they played the game for more than just a check

'cause they're paid too much today
Man, I know that's what leo would say
And they need a kick in the ass
'cause nice guys finish last
Nice guys finish last

So let the critics say just what they will
You gave us a pain and you gave us thrills
And most of these jokers never played the game
You were much too good for their hall of fame

'cause they're paid too much today
Man, I know that's what leo would say
And they need a kick in the ass
'cause nice guys finish last
Nice guys finish last

On a grassy knoll they laid him down
And I bet he's still grumbling underground
