lyrics

Dangerous Boys
© Mark Simos

Come all of you good men
Who are loving and kind
Who will be there tomorrow
Who know your own mind
Find yourself a good woman
Taste life’s many joys
But don’t fall for one who loves
Those dangerous boys

They’re the boys that can steal her heart
With one sparkling glance
Loyalty against mystery
Never had half a chance
On the thinnest of threads they tug
Like a child with his toys
So strong the chains of
Those dangerous boys

Did you court her too gently?
Could you just not wait?
Did you arrive at her doorstep
One heartbeat too late?
Did you try to call to her
In midnight’s dark voice?
A language known only to
Those dangerous boys

What fool god possessed you?
What made you so bold?
To reach for a hand
You could have but not hold
Was it ever your game to win
With your plans and your ploys?
No, you lost to the easy grin
Of those dangerous boys

Some days you’ll be filled with rage
Some days with despair
You’re the one truly dangerous
You’re the one who is there
You’re the one she would choose to love
If love were a choice
Instead of a tale told
By dangerous boys

So come all of you good men
Who are loving and kind
Who will be there tomorrow
Who know your own mind
Find yourself a good woman
Taste life’s many joys
But don’t fall for one who loves
Those dangerous boys
Yes, stay far from the ones who love
Only those dangerous boys
