JEFF BATES


I Can't Have Nothing Nice Lyrics

FOUR BY FOUR CHEVEROLET
CHICK MAGNET ALL THE WAY
KEPT HER ARMOR-ALLED AND WAXED AND SHINED AND BUFFED
GOT A GOOD FRIEND DOWN AT THE GOODYEAR
WE GET TOGETHER TALK TIRES AND DRINK BEER
HE GAVE ME A GOOD DEAL ON SOME GOOD WHEELS FOR MY TRUCK
I WAS TRYING EM’ OUT WHEN SOME ADOLESCENT IN A TRANS AM
RAN A RED LIGHT AND ALL I HEARD WAS BAM! DAMN!

CHORUS:
I CAN’T HAVE NOTHIN’ NICE
WORKED HARD ALL MY LIFE
EVERYTIME I GET A PIECE OF THE PIE
IF SOMEBODY DON’T SNATCH IT OR TAKE ‘EM A BITE
IT SLIDES RIGHT OFF THE PLATE INTO THE BEANS AND RICE
I CAN’T HAVE NOTHIN’ NICE
NO I CAN’T HAVE NOTHIN’ NICE

FOR EXAMPLE, I SAVED UP AND BOUGHT ME A PLACE
A FIX ER UP OUT ON THE LAKE
GAVE IT TENDER LOVIN’ CARE AND ELBOW GREASE
I MET A GIRL DOWN AT THE MARINA WE TALKED BAIT AND DRANK MARGARITAS
SHE GAVE ME A LIP LOCK OUT ON THE BOAT DOCK AND SHE HOOKED ME
BEFORE TOO LONG WE WERE HUMMIN’ ALONG TO WEDDING BELLS
THEN SHE KICKED ME OUT AND PUT MY HOUSE UP FOR SALE
(WELL HELL!)

CHORUS:

BRIDGE:
I GOT A BRAND NEW CHEVY IN THE JUNK YARD
A MEMORY OF A HOUSE AND A BROKEN HEART
AND I SURE HOPE MY DREAMS DON’T COME TRUE TWICE!

CHORUS:

I CAN’T HAVE NOTHIN’ NICE
WORKED HARD ALL MY LIFE
I CAN’T HAVE NOTHIN’ NICE (THAT’S RIGHT)
