(+LYRICS+MEANING) MUSIC REVIEW: BE NICE BY THE BLACK EYED PEAS FT SNOOP DOGG “THIS GUY’S NAME IS PROBABLY ‘NICE’!”

IG @ogefashblog

Hmm, interesting! I wonder if people are still nice to people that wish them bad just like this guy in the video. He was so nice eh; infact, his name must be “Nice” #Winks

But it is good to be nice to people sha. You never can tell, you may be the one needing their help someday, and if you have done something evil in the past, you may be reaping it rather than reaping good. Although, the video of this song shows that it is good to be nice to people that wish you well and those that don’t.

Enough of the long intro, kindly take a gander at the lyrics below.

 INTRO

 Be nice, be nice, be nice, be nice

VERSE 1

I just wanna be happy
I don’t wanna feel nasty
I’m tryna turn my vibration around so I can feel fantastic
Talking to myself in the mirror
I’m telling me, telling me to cheer up
Everyone around got chaos of a clown
And it’s so cold like Siberio

PRE CHORUS

But I do not want negative energy
If you get what you give, give me positivity (Give it to me)

Hey, be different! Be nice
Just smile, I promise it’ll change your life.

Just smile, I promise it’ll change your life

The love you give is the love you get
So be nice and change your life (Be nice, be nice)

VERSE 2

I got a new direction
I ain’t got no time for stressing
I don’t wanna carry no bad vibration
I don’t wanna be in depression

I just wanna be cool, live my life without the problems
Everybody tryna push me down to the ground

But I ain’t living life from the bottom

VERSE 3 (SNOOP DOG)

If we all could just find a way to fly away

Just slip into a brighter day (Say what?)
One step, so def, so right, go left, and we will do them right away
I’m talking to all of my leaders (Leaders)
We should just pow-er, when all of us meet up
And fight for each other, not one another
And when we talk, be nice to each other
Be cordial, be glad, be happy not sad
Stay in your bag
And all of my bangers, that bang with the flag
Whether Crip, or Blood, be good to each other; be hood to each other
In Lahasa, Micasa, Socasa
On and on, love that we’r giving keeps rolling on, rolling on

 

CHORUS

Hey, be different! Be nice
Just smile, I promise it’ll change your life
Hey, be different! Be nice!
Just smile, I promise it’ll change your life
Hey! Be nice. Hey! Be nice
