Why Canít You Be Good
Words and Music by: Larry Norman (I don't write a lot about relationships. They just hard to write about. And it's a, probably the most important thing in life is relationships. It's about all you got unless you really relate to your breakfast cereal and rocks and trees and stuff.) 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 And that your heart 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? What is the reason I like to know? What is the reason I like to know? Why you can't be good?
