Story Behind the Song

I apologise in advance to any serious country fans.... I had a conversation with Bern about writing a comedy song, and the conversation got around to standard, stupid excuses that women make not to go out with men. ie, "you're too nice", or "you can do be

Lyrics

We've known each other for so long,
I want you to know what I think.
So I pick up the phone and call you up,
To ask you out for a drink.

I ask you if you're feeling alright,
I ask what you're doing today.
Hold my breath while I wait for your answer,
But my heart sinks when you say:

CHORUS
I can't. You're too nice,
The only man made from sugar and spice.
Don't want to lose you as a friend,
I think its best in the end.

You could have any man you want,
You say you want Mr Right.
Every time a nice guy asks you out, you say:
?I can't. I'm washing my hair tonight.?

I know I've made myself look a fool,
I don't know what else to say.
So I tell you I like you, and I ask you again,
You reply with another cliche:

CHORUS 2
I can't. Don't you see,
How you could do so much better than me?
I'll only mess around with your mind,
You deserve someone kind.

I say goodbye and hang up the phone,
Still thinking what you just said.
But all I come up with instead of "I love you",
Are your words ringing in my head:

CHORUS
I can't. You're too nice,
The only man made from sugar and spice.
Don't want to lose you as a friend,
I think its best in the end.

"I wasn't ready for a relationship,
But things have changed since then.
I was on the phone to my ex last night,
And we're getting back together again."
