Song Meaning
Verse 1
You had your own way one too many times and now
You`re going to find out what it`s like
Just what it`s like, now you`re a mess
You wanted something you could never possess
Verse 2
You went your own way one too many nights
You treated her like some small oversight
What in the world makes her think that she can
Turn you from a playboy into a man
Verse 0
[Chorus]
You couldn't see that the juvenile things you do
Would drag you down and now that the joke`s on you
You`re pretty cold you end as you start
When your facade isn't falling apart
So now you`re standing in your underwear
Well now you know just how it feels for her
You`re halfway there you know that she can turn you from a
Playboy into a man
Verse 3
You thought you were the answer to her prayers
The perfect gift that every girl prefers
But that`s the trouble `cos every girl still thinks you`re hers
So there you are with your gold chains jangling
Your lucky charms and jewelry dangling
But when she saw you she turned and ran
To turn you from a playboy into a man
Verse 4
[Chorus]
