Say that you like me the way I am
Just take some time out to understand
It may not be much, but I do all I can
Say something nice

I'd never do it to one of you
I'd say something nice if it wasn't true
I'd make you feel better when you're feeling blue
I'd say something nice

Say something nice, only once or twice
Say something nice, only once or twice
Say something nice

I wanna hear that I'm beautiful
But you wouldn't say it even if I were
Wearing my diamonds and a coat of fur
You wouldn't say nothin' nice

Tell me you think that my hair's real nice
Don't stand around and just criticize
Can't you understand that when a person tries
You say something nice

And it's oh so hard, oh so hard
To listen to the words that you say
Oh, say something nice, just once or twice
It wouldn't hurt, don't you see

I wanna hear something nice, say something nice
Say something nice, just once or twice
It don't hurt you at all, say something nice

Say something nice baby, only once or twice
Say something nice
Say something nice baby, only once or twice
Say something nice

Hey don't you hear me, hey don't you hear me
Hey don't you hear me, hey don't you hear me

Say something nice

Say something nice

And it's oh so hard, and it's oh so hard
And I'm dying to hear what I've never heard (fade out)
