You Didnt Have To Be So Nice

Lovin' Spoonful

Verse 1 (backing vocals only on repeat)

 EG#m
          You didn't have to be so nice
(be so nice)
 AA/B
          I would have liked you anyway
(would have liked you anyway)
 EG#m
          If you had just looked once or twice
(once or twice)
 AA/B
          And gone upon your quiet way
(quiet way)

Chorus:

 AAmaj7A6Amaj7E
        Today I said the time was right for me to follow you
 AAmaj7A6Amaj7E
          I knew I'd find you in a day or two
 B
        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))

(drum fill: eighth-note triplets 1 bar)

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
