You didn't have to be so nice, I would have liked you anyway
If you had just looked once or twice and gone upon your quiet way
Today I said the time was right for me to follow you
I knew I'd find you in a day or two and it's true

    Absolute classic, one of the best from The Lovin' Spoonful. The bells & general arrangement always made me want to associate this song with Christmas. I know I can't be the only one.

    I`M Believer war wohl größter Hit. Oder ??

    I absolutely adore this song! Even though I wasn't alive, it has such a sense of nostalgia for me. I grew up on the oldies, and I can just see myself in the Brady neighborhood listening to this.

    Saying a song is "cute" has the same effect as telling a girl she's "cute" if she's older than, oh maybe ten; it's death.

    These guys knew how to knock off the British Invasion sound. Great song!

    I "didn't have to" like this song, but I do! It's so effervescent and sunny , it amazes this California lad to ponder how guys from New York City! (-:
