Lyrics to "I Told You I was Mean" song by "Elle King"

Hmm, hmm
Hmm, hmm
I lied to you
I never cried for you
I swear that I tried to
But I had better things to do
Now you're on the road with your painful load
And the words I spoke left your big heart brokenYou know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So I left you knocking outside my front doorYou knew what this was
I don't want you anymore
I warned you before
Warned you before
Well I, I coulda sworn I told you I was meanYou were a sweet old thing
And I was lonely, so I let you hold me for
A limited time only
You see, you're nothing to me'Cause I'll always be a bad, bad seed
And you know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So I left you knocking outside my front doorYou knew what this was
I don't want you anymore
I warned you before, I warned you before
Well I coulda sworn I told you I was meanDum-de-dum dum-dum (hmm)
I'm just a mean old thing (hm)
Dum-de-dum dum-dum (hmm)I know you still bother
Because love is for the poor
So cut out your knocking
'Cause I will never come
I will never come to the doorYou knew just what this was
And I don't want you forever more
I warned you before, baby
I warned you before, oh honey
Well I coulda sworn I told you I was meanDum-de-dum dum-dum
I'm just a mean old thing
Dum-de-dum dum-dum
