Jon Allen – Bad Penny lyrics

I wanna burn my own bridge
Walk my own road to ruin
Don’t waste you breath trying to stop me
I know full well what I’m doing
I got time on my hands, salt on my tongue
Now I’m going down town I’m gonna get myself stung
Guess I’m crazy
But all I wanna do is wrong

I’ve got no illusions
I know I’m going down in flames
I’ll be the first to be taken
When they start calling out names
I can’t even remember all the bad things I’ve done
But I’ll wear the blame for anything they wanna pin on
Guess I’m crazy
But all I wanna do is wrong

I’m a Bad penny baby
Right from my head to my tail
And sooner or later
I’m gonna fly off the rails

Baby don’t be believing I could ever be true
Cause you know I’ll be leaving the way that I always do
Why don’t you walk out that door don’t let me string you along
Cause the only thing you’ll thank me for is getting you gone
Please believe me
All I wanna do is wrong

I’m a bad penny baby
Your fate is gonna be sealed
Cause everything’s free
When you know how to steal

Baby don’t make me love you
Just cause your bloods running hot
No don’t you through it away now
Before you know what you’ve got
The best you can do is go back where you belong
Cause I can’t do any better babe I’m just not that strong
Yeah I’m crazy
Cause all I wanna do is wrong
