Allen Simpson & Matt Selman – High To Be Loathed lyrics

Being hated is the worst feeling there is!

Ho ho ho ho! You’ve got it all wrong, my friend. Once you see it my way
You’ll understand that being hated is the greatest feeling in the world!

Don’t really care for chasing women
Never was keen on booze
Don’t take cocaine or “Mary-Jane”
No, I get drunk on boos!

Eh, that’s “b-o-o-s”, not “z-e” as before.

Uh… We get it... !

You’ve got to love to be hated
Find the good in being bad
Oh, the crowd is full of gentlemen
But they’ve paid to see the cad

Yes it’s a hoot, a kick, a gas
When you’re the villain of the show
Once you wear black you never go back
It’s a-high to be loathed

Chucky, Stalin, Megatron
Eric Cartman, Donkey Kong
Vader, Nader, Simon Legree
Terminators 1, 2 and 3

Iago, Joker, Voldemort
McEnroe on center court
Mr. Burns and Skeletor
Keep your good guys, what a snore

When it’s your head they wanna sever
And your blood they wanna she'd
You know you’re gonna live forever
If everybody wants you dead

So listen up because I’m givin'
The best advice you’ll ever know
So feel the thrill, I know you will
It’s a-high to be loathed
