 Barenaked Ladies Lyrics

Why Say Anything Nice

 

Why'd you put your dress shoes on if you didn't come to dance?

Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd stand a chance

Why'd you take your glasses off if you don't intend to fight?

Frankly, I'd be on my own if I thought I'd last the night

 

No screaming or fighting, no scratching or biting

We're just shaking hands goodnight

Sullen and silent, emotionally violent

I waited a while and nothing, nothing

 

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

 

Why'd you put your backpack on if you won't just take a hike?

Frankly, I'd be out the door if you hadn't sold my bike

 

No fencing or sparring, no bruising or scarring

And no 'au revoiring' yet

No communication, just alienation

I've tried to be patient but nothing, nothing

 

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

Why say anything nice?

 

Say anything nice, a simple device

That makes everything beautiful just ordinary

Nice can come at a price, forever imbued with all this boredom

Sacrifice can only suffice when something is beautiful

 

After all the resentment, all the discontentment

The flowers you sent meant nothing, nothing

 

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all?

Why say anything nice when you can say nothing at all? (Why say anything nice?...)

You can say nothing at all

Woo-hoo-hoo

Nothing at all

Woo-hoo-hoo

You can say nothing at all

Woo-hoo-hoo

Nothing at all
