Nice to Know
by Split Enz



I been licking my wounds
Sick of holding my tongue
I been sweating my way up those blue hills
Now I'm taking the plunge
I been stealing my nerves
And I'm breaking a lot of wishbones
Hope I'm displaying manly virtue
Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew

Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?

I been speaking out of turn
Feel invincible behind that silver fern
And I'm full of a bittersweet anger
Sick of meaningful dialogue
I been playing the high and mighty
Now I'm trying to act my age
I been making up for lost time
Hope I'm cooking my goose for the very last time

Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
It would be nice to know
It would be nice to know
It would be nice to know
Would be nice to know

I been licking my wounds
Sick of holding my tongue
I been sweating my way up those blue hills
Now I'm taking the plunge
I been stealing my nerves
And I'm breaking a lot of wishbones
Hope I'm displaying manly virtue
Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew

Wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
Oh wouldn't it be nice to know?
