Nice Men

Album: The Performance (2009)
Play Video
  • Night arrived in a shiny dress, the water calm and still
    The only sound for miles around was a hungry cat on a windowsill
    In amongst the quiet, something strange was going on

    CHORUS:
    Where have all the nice men
    Where have all the good men
    Where have all the bad men gone?

    Mothers wept, fathers went out, searching for a wife
    Could it be they had all been led astray and hypnotised?
    Suddenly, they had misplaced almost every son

    CHORUS

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    Where have they gone, who knows?
    Where have they gone, no one knows
    Where have they gone, who knows?
    Where have they gone, well, nobody knows
    (2x)

    INSTRUMENTAL BRIDGE

    Mothers wept, fathers went out, searching for a wife
    Could it be they had all been led astray and hypnotised?
    Suddenly, they had misplaced almost every son

    CHORUS (2x)
