Why Canít You Be Good?
Words and Music by: Larry Norman La-la-la - La-la-la-la-la-la! Why can't you behave? Why can't you be good? You don't even try To do the things you should. Well, what is the reason I like to know? Why you can't be good? You go into the bedroom You say you got to powder your nose But the powder is cocaine I see traces on your clothes.   Well, what is the reason I like to know? Why you can't be good? Take another look inside your dreams tonight When you go to sleep Try and find the reasons why you've lost your way Like some little sheep. You say that you love me You say your love is true But you got so many other lovers Well, what am I s'pose to do?   Well, what is the reason I like to know? Why can't you be good? Just be good, baby Just be good. Just try, you know, just try to be good You don't have to be perfect Just, just be good. Sometimes I stay around all night waiting for you to come back You don't come back You don't come back You come home late Maybe the next day Why can't you be good? Gets a bit lonely sometimes Gets a little lonely Gets a little bit lonely, baby Oh, I'm waiting for you Be good, be good.
