Here Come The Nice

New Authorised Biography out 18 March 2021

All or Nothing, Simon Spence’s oral history biography, is drawn from over 125 interviews with those who knew Marriott intimately: his wives, children, bandmates and closest friends, managers, record producers, record label bosses and his fellow musicians. Included are scores of people who have never told their story before. From his child star beginnings to his battles with drug addiction and untimely death in a housefire, All or Nothing is a visceral and unflinching account of Steve Marriott’s extraordinary and often troubling life.

Lyrics

Here Come The Nice

Here come the nice lookin' so good
He makes me feel like no one else could
He knows what I want, he's got what I need
He's always there if I need some sweet

Here come the nice (It's understood)
Here come the nice (He'll make you feel so good)
I'd be just like him (If I only could)
You know you should

You know you should meet the man
The man gonna help you all he can
You don't need money to be wise

Here come the nice (It's understood)
Here come the nice (He makes me feel so good)
I'd be just like him (If only could)
You know you should

Here come the nice lookin' so cool
Everyone knows the nice is no fool
He'll bring you up and show you around
He's always there when your feet hit the ground

Here come the nice (It's understood)
Here come the nice (God he makes me feel good)
I'd be just like him (If I only could)
You know you should

You know you got to try to meet the man
This man's gonna teach you all he can
Ha! You don't need money (Money)
Money to open your eyes

Here come the nice (It's understood)
Here come the nice (God, he makes me feel good)
I'd be just like him (If I only could)

Here come the nice (Oh baby, baby, baby)
Here come the nice (Here come the nice)
I'd be just like him (If I only could)
You know you should
