Next Contestant Lyrics

I judge by what she's wearing
Just how many heads I'm tearing
Off of assholes coming on to her
Each night seems like it's getting worse
And I wish she'd take the night off
So I don't have to fight off
Every asshole coming on to her

    Exactly. It's about a guy's stripper girlfriend and guys and girls hitting on her (and being jealous of her) and trying to bed her. At first, he was ok with the whole scene (and is basically still fascinated with it and her), but he feels it's getting worse and it IS beginning to wear on him (hence, 'THIS TIME somebody's getting hurt). TBK (truth be known, most clubs don't (knowingly) allow girls' boyfriends / husbands /girlfriends in the club while they're working for just that reason. Peace

    Both of you are right but really wrong. It's about his girlfriend always going around wearing revealing clothes and all the guys/girls are hitting on her so he decided to kick their asses. He refers to everyone trying to "get inside her" as contestents hense the title next contestent

    I believe this song is describing a boyfriend who loves his girlfriend so much he sticks up for he every night she works while some dudes are hitting on her and some girls are jealous of how good she looks. Chad can tell how many people are going to harass her just by how much skin she's showing. If only every boyfriend would be this perfect! Nickelback is my favorite band! I'm a twelve year old named Taylor and Nickelback is the greatest band to ever play!
