As a fan of Machine Gun Kelly, the rapper, I find myself being a fan of Machine Gun Kelly, the punk singer as well. Of course, having Travis Barker be part of your band wins a few points with me as well. Since Paramore won’t play the song anymore I guess it’s a good thing these guys took it up. Other than a different gendered singer, the song isn’t too much different from the original, but I’m still kinda glad MGK didn’t rap this song.


The Original


The Lyrics

I’m in the business of misery
Let’s take it from the top
She’s got a body like an hourglass, it’s ticking like a clock
It’s a matter of time before we all run out
When I thought he was mine, she caught him by the mouth
I waited eight long months, she finally set him free
I told him I couldn’t lie, he was the only one for me
Two weeks and we had caught on fire
She’s got it out for me, but I wear the biggest smile
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
‘Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could, then you know you would
‘Cause God it just feels so
It just feels so good
Second chances they don’t ever matter, people never change
Once a whore, you’re nothing more
I’m sorry, that’ll never change
And about forgiveness, we’re both supposed to have exchanged
I’m sorry, honey, but I passed it up, now look this way
Well, there’s a million other girls who do it just like you
Looking as innocent as possible to get to who
They want and what they want, it’s easy if you do it right
Well I refuse, I refuse, I refuse
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
‘Cause I got him where I want him right now
And if you could, then you know you would
‘Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good
I watched his wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving you
Just watch my wildest dreams come true
Not one of them involving
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, I never meant to brag
But I got him where I want him now
Whoa, it was never my intention to brag
To steal it all away from you now
But God, does it feel so good
‘Cause I got him where I want him now
And if you could then you know you would
‘Cause God, it just feels so
It just feels so good
