Patterson Hood - Foolish Young Bastard lyrics

Foolish young bastard
You shouldn't do things half-assed
Going out the world backwards
Foolish young bastard

You're such a big tall man
You shouldn't sell yourself short
You got the really big deals nipping hard at your heels
Why you want to go and blow it
So suave and wily you can cut em while your smiling
Its those times when you forget that gets you in a mess
A man can fail before he knows it

Foolish young bastard
Too damned smart to even know it
Take that turn a little faster
You foolish young bastard

Such a foolish young bastard
Got it all so figured out
Can you back it up in plaster?
Foolish young bastard

You'll either prove them all wrong or be a disaster
Foolish young bastard
