Why Canít You Be Good?
Words and Music by: Larry Norman Why can't you behave? Why can't you be good? You don't even try To do the things you should. 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 supposed to do?   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. Your face looks so pale But your mind is such a mess You got a cold and a wicked heart It's beating underneath your breath. 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? Why can't you be good? Why can't you be good, baby? You know you break my heart You say you love me but I know it's not so I can't follow you every place you go. Why can't you be good?
