Josie & The Pussycats – Pretend To Be Nice lyrics

Well, he looks at me with those innocent eyes
And says, "It looks like you're wearing some kind of disguise
Because your hair sticks up, your shoes are untied
I hope that you got that shirt at half price"

And every word I say falls flat on the floor
I try to tell a joke, he's heard it before
And I don't think that I can take it no more
He's driving me right out my front door

Why do you do what you do to me, baby
Shaking my confidence, driving me crazy
You know if I could I'd do anything for you
Please don't ignore me 'cause you know I adore you

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright

And I try so hard just to figure him out
But he won't tell me what he's been thinking about
And then he falls asleep on the living room couch
With his sunglasses on and his tongue hanging out

And then he disappears for a week at a time
And then he shows up just like everything's fine
And I don't get what goes on in his mind
But I'm tired of hearing the same stupid line

Why do you do what you do to me, baby
Shaking my confidence, driving me crazy
You know if I could I'd do anything for you
Please don't ignore me, 'cause you know I adore you

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright

Why do you do what you do to me, baby
Shaking my confidence, driving me crazy
You know if I could I'd do anything for you
I don't mean to bore you, 'cause you know I adore you

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright, alright

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright, alright

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
If you could just pretend to be nice
Everything in my life would be alright, alright

Can't you just pretend to be nice
Can you at least pretend to be nice
