Nice to Be Around
Paul Williams Lyrics


Hello, such a simple way to start a love affair
Should I jump right in and say how much I care?
Would you take me for the madness of a simple-hearted clown?

Hello, with affection from a sentimental fool
From a little girl who's broken every rule
One who brings me up when all the others seem to let me down
One who's nice to be around

Should I say that it's a blue world without you
Nice words I remember from an old love song
But all wrong 'cause I've never called it love before
This feeling's new, it came with you

Oh, and I know that the nicest things have never seemed to last
That we're both a bit embarrassed by our past
But I think there's something special in the feelings that we've found
And you're nice to be around, and you're nice to be around

The year was 1973. This track was nominated for Best Song at the Oscars and OST from the movie Cinderella Liberty. Haunting and Timeless. ❤

Susan Harris

That movie!

Beautiful song from a memorable but sad film. Nobody sang Paul Williams songs better than Paul Williams. I saw him in concert in St. Louis and he was great.

Norma Gray McDonald

Saw him live too in Philly...great show! 💞💞💞

Haunting melody, words that flow so perfectly together. The man's a genius. This song is in my top 5 of his and one I've always wished I'd written......
Thank you for sharing. Great quality!
