Mr. Nice guy, yeah last to be thought about
First one she’s turning down, guess I’m…
Mr. Nice guy, thought I’d come in last
Maybe I’ll be better off ya, just chasing the..
Well I took this chick that was lovely
… a lobster… for hours on …
I thought this girl was thinking of me
But when we off for dinner, she brought all of her friends
While now, everyone’s playing gum like
When I feel … baby all I come
I’m out here looking for a real deal
While this chick right here’s looking for a free meal
I’m a big Eric Roberson fan. I dig his music. His content is more my speed. More mature than say Chris Brown or Trey Songz. I mean they’re cool but I’ll pass on hearing how another man can fuck a woman till she screams loud enough for her neighbors to hear. Just not my type of music. Either way back to Eric Roberson. His new album is called Mister Nice and above are some of the lyrics from the title track.
Let me tell you this here is straight bullshit. Unadulterated bullshit.
I’m not saying I don’t believe in nice guys. I’m a nice guy. I care about the general well-being of those close to me and strangers even. I’m polite. I have manners. And guess what? I don’t finish last. Sure there are times when I don’t finish first. We all have off-days. But the complaining that I hear about nice guys finishing last is just plain tired.
You know who finishes last? Pushovers and simps.
That’s who Eric Roberson is describing in this song. He’s basically dry snitching on himself. In trying to garner sympathy for this plight he manages to make himself look foolish. Let’s break down these lyrics shall we.
He takes a woman I have to assume he’s recently met to a lobster dinner. That’s the first problem is he’s dong things like taking chicks out to lobster dinners on a first date. Not saying that there’s anything wrong with treating a woman you barely know to expensive meals but there’s something wrong with treating women you barely know to expensive meals. Let’s say he had cash to burn and was feeling generous so he didn’t mind taking her out. This anecdote gets all the more interesting as they get ready to head to dinner and she decides she wants to bring her friends. *record skips* He agrees to this bullshit? So now not only does he prove himself to be a pushover, he now enters simp status. They all go to dinner where I’m sure they are ignoring him and talking amongst themselves the whole night. After dinner the check comes and they all look at him like “You got this?”
If that’s being a nice guy then he can keep that shit. My opinion? He’s a lame pushover.
In short, nice guys don’t finish last but pushovers and cowards who are too afraid to speak up for what they want do.
Don’t be a coward.
