She hit town like
A rose in bloom
Smellin' sweet
Said sweet perfume
The color faded
And petals died
Down in the city
No one cried
In the streets
The garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
The roaches so big
You know that they got bones
Moved in and made
A tenement home
I said,

Nice boys don't play rock and roll
Nice boys don't play rock and roll
I'm not a nice boy!

Sweet sixteen she
Was fresh and clean
Wanted so bad to
Be part of the scene
She met the man
And she did the smack
Paid the price layin'
Flat on her back
Wanted so bad just to
Please the boys
They ended up
Just being a toy
Played so hard
She burned her life away
Lies were told
But no promises made
You know,

Nice boys don't play rock and roll
Nice boys don't play rock and roll
I'm not a nice boy
And I never was

Young and fresh
When she hit town
Hot for kicks just to
Get herself around
Now she lays
In a filthy room
Kills the pain with
A flick and a spoon
In the streets
The garbage lies
Protected by a million flies
Ya know the roaches so big
Ya know that they got bones
Moved in and
Made a tenement home

Nice boys don't play rock and roll [x5]
Na Na Na Na Na Na, baby
Nice boys don't play rock and roll [x2]
I'll bet your mamma said
Nice boys don't play rock and roll [x5]
Nice boys!
