So now you want the whole world to notice that you've come around,
Now you expect,
We'll see how you're really so much better now,
But I know the truth, I won't waste my youth

On a cad and a bounder, a dog and a cheat
All the lives that you've had, all the hearts you eat
You're a rascal and a rogue, a villain and a crook
Still I tug at your line, I'm a fish on your hook
I should be better, but I'm worse...

What's the point pretending that you could be a better man (oohhooh)
Just give in, since you always end up right back where you began (ohhooh)
Still I know the truth, but I have a sweet tooth...

For a cad and a bounder, a dog and a cheat
All the lives that you've had, all the hearts you eat
You're a rascal and a rogue, a villain and a crook
Still I tug at your line, I'm a fish on your hook
You're rash and you're hasty
You're reckless with my heart, still I wait by the phone
I will never get smart
I should be better, but I'm worse...

(Still I know the truth, but I have a sweet tooth)

For a cad and a bounder, a dog and a cheat
All the lives that you've had, all the hearts you eat
You're a rascal and a rogue, a villain and a crook
Still I tug at your line, I'm a fish on your hook
You're rash and you're hasty
You're reckless with my heart, still I wait by the phone
I will never get smart
I should be better, but I'm worse...

Catchy - and so true

Ah, but she has "a sweet tooth for a cad and a bounder". Cads can be a lot more fun than us caring guys. As long as a woman uses a cad for fun and frolics, and doesn't look to get a 'relationship' out of him, there's no harm done. Mr Rochester types are good for a ride and excitement and novelty.

There's a very good cask ale pub in Nottingham, The Crown, which describes its punters (including myself) as CADs, or Crown Ale Drinkers, and its house beers are Cad, Bounder and Scoundrel from Leatherbritches brewery. Just a bit of pointless trivia...

Sounds like the soundtrack for a bad cartoon.  I rate it a 3
Playful! {#Dance}
aw, they had me til the penny whistle. {#Snooty}
Viva la difference!
I am not a cad... but I do a lot of CAD.
Sounds a bit like Koop.

Now, that was refreshing! Lowell's daughter, huh?! Let's hear some more!
LRC upload.  I wasn't sure if it would get played  - good stuff.
LOVE this.
Inara George, Lowell's daughter.

Ah, Lowell. I wish your daughter well. But I sure wish you were still with us.
