Lovin Spoonful – You Didn't Have To Be So Nice lyrics
(John Sebastian - Steve Boone)
Verse 1 (backing vocals only on repeat)
You didn't have to be so nice (be so nice)
I would have liked you anyway (would have liked you anyway)
If you had just looked once or twice (once or twice)
And gone upon your quiet way (quiet way)
Chorus:
Today I said the time was right for me to follow you
I knew I'd find you in a day or two
And it's true
Verse 2:
You came upon a quiet day
You simply seemed to take your place
I knew that it would be that way
The minute that I saw your face
[repeat chorus (instrumental)]
Verse 3:
And when we've had a few more days
(when we've had a few more days)
I wonder if I'll get to say
(wonder if I'll get to say)
You didn't have to be so nice
(be so nice)
I would have liked you anyway
(would have liked...)
Chorus 2:
Today I said the time was right for me to follow you
(... Today said that the time was right to follow you)
I knew I'd find you in a day or two
(I knew that I would find you in a day or two)
And it's true
[repeat verse 1, w/background vocals]
