You Didn't Have To Be So Nice (Sebastian/Steve Boone)
 

You didn't have to be so nice
I would have liked you anyway
If you had just looked once or twice
And gone upon your quiet way

Today 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

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

And when we've had a few more days
I wonder if I'll get to say
You didn't have to be so nice
I would have liked you anyway

Today 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

You didn't have to be so nice
I would have liked you anyway
If you had just looked once or twice
And gone upon your quiet way
