try to be nice, eye on the price 
care about anyone you want 
try to be cool, say yer a fool 
share with anyone you love

     wonít be there in the end 
try to be smart, eye on yer heart 
n learn about anyone you know 
be good like ya know ya should 
be unlike anyone youíve seen

"Be Nice"

you can try to be nice
but there just might be a price
~ you can try to care about anyone you want
you can try to be cool
but theyíll only say youíre a fool
~ you can try to share with anyone you love
but donít you need them, my friend
~ cuz they wonít even be there in the end

you can try to be smart
but you keep an eye on your heart
~ you can try to learn about anyone you know
you can try to be good
just like youíve always known that you should
~ you can try to be unlike anyone youíve seen
but donít you need them, my friend
~ cuz they just wonít be there in the end





~ Story ~

Here's a nice meaty blues tune a bud o mine calls "meanies suck blues" - which is totally valid. It's a pretty simple riff, but done with chords, the lyrics follow the melody exact, but it's just guitar for now ..... ;o)

This is a tune I gave a little thought to during a vacation, after being surrounded by "mean people" for too long. Now, this isn't exactly sposed to be a requiem spouting the virtues of independance from all other lifeforms, but it is usually a good idea to not get too wrapped up in the lives n misdeeds of those not worthy of trust. Y'see, the thing about meanies is that they don't realize it's in their best interest to be kind to others ~ karma, dude ....... ;o)

I'm not sure which came first, the music or the words ~ but the lyrics still might not be entirely finished. Another tune whose completion is being put off until the rest of the band reports for perpetual practice ....... =oP

See also Money Friends for further "meanies suck" blues jams ~ n the disturbingly grooviest pseudo psychological thrillseeking virtual concept album thingy entitled Vacationing at the Local Asylum for equally wiggy n similar Shadows type jams ....... ;o)
