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 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

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
(When we've had a few more days, wonder if I'll get to say)
You didn't have to be so nice, I would have liked you anyway
(Be so nice, would have liked)

Today I said the time was right for me to follow you
(Today said that the time was right to follow you)
I knew that I would find you in a day or two
(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
(Didn't have to be so nice, would have liked you anyway)
If you had just looked once or twice and gone upon your quiet way
(Once or twice, quiet way)
