You gotta be cruel to be kind, in the right measure,
Cruel to be kind, it's a very good sign
Cruel to be kind, it means that I love you,
Baby, you gotta be cruel to be kind.
Well, the title itself is contradictory (see the Literally Impossible song titles section), so each time he mentions it in the chorus (listed here), I think "What the (****)?!" Why does he want his other to be unkind in order to be the opposite? Doesn't make a whole lotta sense.
