This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things CHORDS

It wFas so nice throwing big parties

Jump into the pool from the balcony

Everyone swimming in a champagne sea

And there are no rules when you show up here

Bass beat rattling the chandelier

Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year


So whyBb'd you have to rain on my paradCe?

I'm shaking my headGm. I'm locking the gateCs


* This is why we can't have

NiceF thingDms, darBbling C

BecaFuse you break them

I hDmad to take them awayBb

ThisC is why we can't have

NiceF thingDms, honBbey C

DidF you think I wouldn't hear

all Dmthe things you said about meBb?

ThisC is why we can't have nice things


It Fwas so nice being friends again

There I was, giving you a second chance

But then you stabbed in the back

while shaking my hand

And therein lies the issue

Friends don't try to trick you

Get you on the phone and mind-twist you

And so I took an axe to a mended fence


But I'm notBb the only friend you've lost latCely

If only you wereGmn't so shaCdy

( REPEAT * )

HereF's a toast to my realDm friends

TheyBb don't care about that he-Csaid-she-said

AndF here's to my baDmby

He Bbain't reading what they callC me lately

AndF here's to my momDmma

HadBb to listen to all Cthis drama

And hereF's to you Dm

‘Cause forgiveBbness is a nice thing to do C

Haha, I can't even say it with a straight face

( REPEAT * , * )

This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things LYRICS
It was so nice throwing big parties
Jump into the pool from the balcony
Everyone swimming in a champagne sea
And there are no rules when you show up here
Bass beat rattling the chandelier
Feeling so Gatsby for that whole year

So why'd you have to rain on my parade?
I'm shaking my head. I'm locking the gates

* This is why we can't have
Nice things, darling
Because you break them
I had to take them away
This is why we can't have
Nice things, honey
Did you think I wouldn't hear
all the things you said about me?
This is why we can't have nice things


It was so nice being friends again
There I was, giving you a second chance
But then you stabbed in the back
while shaking my hand
And therein lies the issue
Friends don't try to trick you
Get you on the phone and mind-twist you
And so I took an axe to a mended fence

But I'm not the only friend you've lost lately
If only you weren't so shady
( REPEAT * )
Here's a toast to my real friends
They don't care about that he-said-she-said
And here's to my baby
He ain't reading what they call me lately
And here's to my momma
Had to listen to all this drama
And here's to you
‘Cause forgiveness is a nice thing to do
Haha, I can't even say it with a straight face
( REPEAT * , * )
