Alice Cooper: No More Mr. Nice Guy Meaning

No More Mr. Nice Guy Lyrics

I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing
Till they got a hold of me
I opened doors for little old ladies
I helped the blind to see
I got no friends 'cause they read the papers
They can't be seen with me
And I'm gettin' real shot down
And I'm...

    Alice Cooper's song about a once being a nice sweet kid who went to church regularly and opened doors for old ladies and probably gave them his seat during rush hours on buses and trains. He became an outsider when they got a hold of him with the school teaching in the public educational system that was in conflict with his beliefs and thoughts. That eventually crossed over with the reserved in the church and the people that knew him along with his parents who were also ashamed of him when he started to rebel and express himself as a rock and roller, dressed in gothic clothes with love for snakes and all that.

    This put fear in the people that did not understand him or his music in a similar way in what he learned by the Reserved who put fear of god in people that did not understand god, so in this song both sides said to each other ''no more Mr. Nice guy'', where both want respect to be earned, but don't ask him to change for them because like them he lost his friends cause they read all the bullshit lies in the papers that is all propaganda he cannot buy.

    I thought this came from the newspaper stories about Ozzie biting the bats head off.

    It's about the writers life now that he is famous. His stage persona is turning people away form him. To them, he is no long the nice kid they knew, he is now a freak.

    It's about turning bad after acting good all his life. After being sweet, he turns to being mean and nasty. He gets sick of being good so he turns to the bad side...LOL.

    This song talks about being a good person, but being treated bad by other people at the same time. The first lines "I used to be such a sweet, sweet thing. 'Till they gotta hold of me." Meaning, he eventually got tired of all the crap he was getting from other people.
