Daniel Johnston - Etiquette lyrics

Never noticed her Why I noticed her so much I made myself ridiculous Never noticed her But I made the blunder of trying to attract her attention instead of giving it When I said hello I had talked right past her When she looked at me I had glanced shyly to one side I had been so self-conscience, I acted self-conscience Notice others and let them notice by directness Whoo! Play it Bill! Whoo! Don't be scared; don't be shy. You'll never know until you try, buddy Fred is one of the richest people I have ever met True, he does not have a hoard of money to give away He cannot pay handsome salaries He does not entertain lavishly Or bestow costly gifts But he overflows with the gold of sincere friendliness And gets in return a self-satisfaction An influence, and a power with people That all the money in the mint could not buy He does not wait to see if people will like him Fred a**umes they do like him That is one of his secrets He does not wait for them to say hello or smile first He takes a friendly lead himself and everyone follows That is another one of the secrets He does not question whether or not He will like a person Or wait before deciding to be friendly He takes it for granted He will like everyone, every person This is the third secret of friendliness He magnifies other's good points No matter how inconsequential He overlooks a few annoying qualities Or major bad points This is the fourth element in friendliness Friendliness is very contagious The trouble is that many of us wait To catch it from someone else instead of Giving the other fella a chance
