Don't forget to be nice.

lyrics

You go through life tryin’ to be nice
You go through life tryin’ to do what’s right
Being right, being nice, feeling empowered
Then someone burns an effigy of Grenfell Tower

There’s no redemption for people like that
There’s justice at the end of a baseball bat
How can you debate with that kind of hate
That sees a white face and calls you “mate”

It’s like the Free Tommy crowd and the DFLA
We’ll keep doing what we’re doing ‘til they all go away
It’s still true now what was true back then
If they show their faces round here, they’ll see us again

But you gotta draw the line between the shepherds and the sheep
The real Nazi’s and the company they keep
But there’s no questions, no keeping it neat
No room for conversation when they’re hittin’ the street

But don’t lose focus, don’t lose your perspective
It’s too easy to get wrapped up in all the invective
Most people are good, most people are right
Don’t forget that, don’t forget to be nice.
