Rose Tattoo - Nice Boys

 

Intro 4x

 

She hit town a rose in bloom

Smell the sweet, sweet perfume

The color faded and the petals died

Down in the city no one cried

And in the streets the garbage lies

Protected by a million flies

With roaches so big they got bones

They moved in and made themselves at home

 

I say nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll

 

I'm not a nice boy!

 

Sweet sixteen she was fresh and clean

Wanted so bad to be part of the scene

She met the man and she did the smack

And now, she pays the price layin' down on her back

Want so bad just to please the boys

Ended up bein' just a toy

Played so hard burned her life away

Lies were told no promises made

 

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll

 

I'm not a nice boy...and I never was

 

Riff 6x (Guitar)

 

Young and fresh when she hit town

Hot for kicks just to get around

And now she lays in a filthy room

She kills the pain with a flick and a spoon

 

And in the streets the garbage lies

Protected by a million flies

With roaches so big they got bones

They moved in and made themselves at home

 

Nice boys...don't play rock'n'roll 7x

Nice boys...they never play rock'n'roll
