                            "Be Nice To Me"
                            (Todd Rundgren)

Note from AWR: right-hand keyboard voicings are given where not obvious;
the 7-1-3-5 voicing of the major-7th chords is a trademark Toddism.


	Bb   F/A    Gm7  Gm7/C			[all voiced with F on top]
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /  /

Verse 1:

	Bbmaj9   Fmaj7				[Bbmaj9: D-F-A-C]
	No catch, no strings			[Fmaj7: E-F-A-C]
	Bbmaj9      Fmaj7
	None of the usual things
	    Ebmaj7        Cm7 Cm7/F Bbmaj7	[Ebmaj7: D-Eb-G-Bb]
	I'm happy just to lay  and  look
	            Em7 A6  Dm9			[Dm9: A-C-E-F]
	Let's throw out the book
	         G6/9  G  Gm7			[G6/9: B-E-A]
	Now we're off the hook
	                E   E7
	And please just be

Chorus 1:

	Fmaj7  Am7   Gm9     E     E7
	      Nice to me    won't you
	Fmaj7 Am7    Gm9   A7   (Bbmaj9)
	Be    nice to me (nice to me)

Verse 2:

	So tired, so sad
	So sick of being had
	By everyone who comes along
	Would it be so wrong
	If you played along
	And please just be

Chorus 2/Bridge:

	Fmaj7  Am7    Gm9   C
	       Nice to me
	             Bbmaj9    Am7
	And would it bring you down
	     Gm7   Gm7/C
	If I hang around   and just
	Fmaj7 Am7    Gm9   C
	Be    nice to me
	             Bb        Am7
	It's been a long, long time
	        Gm7      A7
	Since I felt so fine

	   Bb F/A       Gm7      F
	And I know your love is fine
	Bb F/A         G   G7   C    G/B
	 I know what's on your mind, but

Verse 3:

	Don't laugh, don't cry
	Don't make me wonder why
	You're doing what you're doing now
	Can't you see somehow
	It's the wrong time now
	So please just be


	Fmaj7  Am7    Gm9   C
	       Nice to me
	Bb   F/A    Gm7   Gm7/C
	/  /  /  /   /  /  /  /
	Fmaj7  Am7   Gm9   C
          Be  nice to me
	             Bb        F/A          Gm7     Gm7/C
	It's been a long, long time since I felt so fine   [fade]

I realize I'm about 13 years late, but this guy Andrew Rogers gets it! Someone finally got the voicings right, and wow, what a difference. More Toddisms Andrew!
