    Cool Cruel Intentions

    *************
    Liked you a lot
    Strictly platonic
    What lied ahead
    Simply ironic

    Said you wanted me
    In the worst way
    Confessed you thought of me
    Night and day

    Made it seem
    All too easy
    Promised anything
    Just to please me

    Wasn't attracted
    Flattered,amused
    Boys will be boys
    Had nothing to lose

    Lie after lie
    And I'd believe
    Cause you had something
    Up your sleeve
    From the start
    Your Intentions cruel
    You won the game
    I played the fool

    Once I gave in
    Something changed
    It was my first clue
    You were deranged
    People like you
    Have a name
    I believe it's called
    Being insane

    At first I tried
    To understand
    Now,couldn't careless
    Don't give a damn

    Lie after lie,
    And I'd believe
    Cause you had something
    Up your sleeve
    From the start
    Your Intentions Cruel
    You won the game
    I played the fool

    Only thing
    I didn't dig
    Was being played
    By a pig

    Doug, I think I get this song. The person was a liar from the start, but then you started believing the lies, or "fell" and overlooked the lies?
    The poetry of it is good.
    But an individual being called a 'pig' bothers me, even if (s)he is a jerk.

    I agree.When I was "previewing" this song for my guitar players,I asked them,Should I cut this line?"They didn't think so,so I left it in.I have a habit of liking to get "the last word in"."Yes,I lose,But so do you"is what I'm talking about.If a couple of people,like you,told me to cut the line,I would.It's not that important to the song,just me being a bad sport/loser,as usual.What do you say people of All The Lyrics,should I lose the line or not?P.S. you read the song right,liar then I fell for it.Boys will be boys!

    Hey, Doug. This was not constructive criticism. It was just me voicing my own personal emotional reaction. And wanting to keep up with your songs!

    Like you said: "Not that important," but something needs to be in there because it's your songwriting "signature." You get in the last word, defo Doug Denslowe!

    Impact, great way to end this song I think. I like it. And yeah I'm sure you know Frankie's not one to tell anyone what to do with their own creation
    I'll bet the lyrics roll really good to music too. It seems like the easiest song in the world to sing.

    Hi Doug, Before I read the comments, at the end of the song, when I saw the las line, I thought "this is so rude".
    If you ask me, I think that most of us in some part of our lives feel that some person is this bad, (or even more, but this is not the theme of this thread).
    I believe that some persons can be compared with fierce or bad behavior animals, and some animals could be angry if they know that are compared to some very bad people.
    But when I noticed that the end that you put to your lyrics produce this noise, I think that your song could be a total succes, remember Madonna, Rolling Stones and other thousands who live making people jump from their seats with their attitudes, even The Beatles had some of this.
    I don´t want to say that is good to live from scandals, but I want to ask you. Did you feel this word when you wrote it?
    If it´s so, then the song is yourself in that moment of anger, you expressed your passion, about this I think that the important is that you are authentic.
    If your answer to my last question was "yes", I vote for you let it as it is, cause part of us is let flow our feelings, if we keep them inside can harm us, so if you want to scream, then scream, if you want to bless, then bless. I believe there is a moment for storm and a moment for calm in our souls. Saludos amigo.

As far as content there is NO RIGHT OR WRONG. That's a fact. In conclusion, I love this song and I adore it's ending.
    Thanks for the support.I completely agree with you.There is no right or wrong in songwriting.Just good or bad songs!

    I am more bothered about flying cows than pigs and I am particularly vulnerable when it comes to lies.
    Analyzing piece of greatness, I sit here typing and singing and if I ever get sick of this, I'll be probably dead and gone already.
    Applause for the writer in question. Punky stuff, hear the beat, come on people, on your feet!!
