Wouldn't It Be Nice?

Words & Music:

Brian Wilson


A    F#m    Bm    D    A    F#m    C



Wouldn't it be nice if we were older?

                 Bb              Gm7

Then we wouldn't have to wait so long.


And wouldn't it be nice to live together,

               Bb               Gm7    C7

In the kind of world where we belong?


Dm7                         Cm

You know it's gonna make it that much better,

Dm7         Am7               Gm7    C7

When we can say goodnight and stay together.


Wouldn't it be nice if we could wake up

In the morning when the day is new?

And after having spent the day together

Hold each other close the whole night through?


What happy times together we've been spending.

I wish that every kiss was never ending.



Oh, wouldn't it be nice?


DM7         GM7                                 F#m7       Bm7

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true?

Baby, then there wouldn't be a single thing we couldn't do.

            F#m7                   Bm7

We could be married.  (We could be married!)

                 F#m7                      C7

And then we'd be happy.  (And then we'd be happy!)


Oh, wouldn't it be nice?
