IT'S BEEN NICE
(Doc Pomus - Mort Shuman)
MARTY WILDE (PHILIPS 972, 1959)

Well, I took you out to dinner
Then I took you to a show
I had a pocket full of money
And I spent all my dough
Now I see that look in your eye
You're about to say bye-bye
I don't wanna hear you say
It's been nice, a-goodnight
I gotta get up early-early in the morning

Although it's our first date
You know I really had a ball
You're just my kinda chick
You're not too short or too tall
How can you treat me this way
When you know I wanna stay
I don't wanna hear you say
It's been nice, a-goodnight
I gotta get up early-early in the morning

Don't try to shake my hand
Don't try to brush me off
If I bend over to steal a kiss
Don't make out like you gotta cough
Well, I don't wanna call you next thursday night
And I don't wanna join the lines of phones on the right
Oh, I'm so ready and wild
And a-kissing time's right now
I don't wanna hear you say
It's been nice, a-goodnight
I gotta get up early-early in the morning

Don't try to shake my hand
Don't try and brush me off
If I bend over to steal a kiss
Don't make out like you gotta cough
Well, I don't wanna call you next thursday night
And I don't wanna join the lines of phones on the right
Ah, I'm so ready and wild
And kissing time's right now
I don't wanna hear you say
It's been nice, a-goodnight
I gotta get up early-early in the morning
