Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – When A Kid Goes Bad lyrics

By Tom Petty

You got a different kind of
Look in your eye
Something about you
That I don't recognize
These things are talked about
In quiet tones
I never saw a person
So all alone
Some momma's cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Makes you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad

You built for innocence
You built for joy
Suddenly evil's all that
You enjoy
But if you shoot at every
One you see, well you
Can't be my friend 'cause
You might shoot at me

Some momma's cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Makes you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad

When a kid goes bad
When a kid goes bad

Somewhere along the way
Did we let you down
Did you cry out for help and
None was around
Don't try to tell me
That you don't know the score
Are you so shut down
You can't feel anymore?

Some momma's cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Makes you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad
