about

This song was written to accompany the story of Little Red Riding Hood from the "Big Bad" Wolf's point of view.

lyrics

PRE-CHORUS
I’m “the Big Bad Wolf” they say,
“Why did you scare that girl away?”

You don’t even know me
So why you trying to tell me?
I tried and I tried
Misunderstandings really get to me

Take another deep breath
Calm the storm within your chest
When they go low you know the rest

CHORUS:
It’s times like this,
I ain’t acting like I know I should
You got me labeled, “Big Bad Wolf”
And now you got me howling at the moon.

V1:
You don’t know me
You only know the rumors
my -reputation proceeds me,
So, as soon as you meet me
You jump to conclusion
Why?

‘Cause I’m a “bad man?”
I did what I had to do
can I - get a little empathy?
Put ya ten toes inside my shoes
And move like I - mean,
take walk with me,
try to see me
or who I am
not just the faults in me

You might identify,
Might even evolve with me
Love - you ever try to just talk to me?
Look,
I don’t bite
But let’s just keep it polite
The fact of the matter,
The bigger the badder
But sometimes just hype

PRE-CHORUS:
I’m “the Big Bad Wolf” they say,
“Why did you scare that girl away?”

You don’t even know me
So why you trying to tell me?
I tried and I tried
Misunderstandings really get to me

Take another deep breath
Calm the storm within your chest
When they go low you know the rest

CHORUS:
It’s times like this,
I ain’t acting like I know I should
You got me labeled, “Big Bad Wolf”
And now you got me howling at the moon.

CHORUS:
It’s times like this,
I ain’t acting like I know I should
You got me labeled, “Big Bad Wolf”
And now you got me howling at the moon.

BRIDGE:
I’ve been labeled something I’m not
I’ve been prejudged and it hurts me a lot

Now you don’t see me like I am just lost
I just need time to work out all these thoughts

Now you don’t see me like I am just lost
I just need time to work out all these thoughts

Yea hella mad but more than that
Feel like I never got a chance
And that’s just sad

PRE-CHORUS:
I’m “the Big Bad Wolf” they say,
“Why did you scare that girl away?”

You don’t even know me
So why you trying to tell me?
I tried and I tried
Misunderstandings really get to me

Take another deep breath
Calm the storm within your chest
When they go low you know the rest

CHORUS:
It’s times like this,
I ain’t acting like I know I should
You got me labeled, “Big Bad Wolf”
And now you got me howling at the moon.

CHORUS:
It’s times like this,
I ain’t acting like I know I should
You got me labeled, “Big Bad Wolf”
And now you got me howling at the moon.
