Larry Norman – Why Can't You Be Good lyrics

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'd 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.
What is the reason, I'd 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 reason 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 loves
Oh what am I supposed to do?
What is the reason, I'd like to know,
What is the reason, I'd like to know,
What is the reason, I'd like to know,
Why you can't be good.
