Being good to me

It’s hard to be a child so far from home
It’s hard to be a dog without a bone
Clear the traffic from the street
Perform a death-defying feat
It won’t be as hard as you being good to me.

It’s hard to raise the dead up from the grave
But not as hard as getting you to misbehave
I could close my eyes to see
Set the whole damn world free
That ain’t as hard as you being good to me.

It’s hard when your lover’s on the run
It’s hard not to feel I’ve come undone
I could get us front row seats
To FDR’s next speech
That ain’t as hard as you being good to me.

Now something tells me baby
You got your own idea of fun.
‘Cause when I gave the moon to you
You said, what about the sun?

It’s hard to walk on water turned into wine
But not as hard as leaving all this mess behind
Pluck a sailor from the sea
Sit him down right next to me
It won’t be as hard as you being good to me.


 

It’s hard to find a needle in the hay
It’s hard to know the words that I should say
Well, a lot of folks agree
That you can’t change history
But it ain’t as hard as you being good to me.

Now you took my lucky rabbit’s foot
And left with me this curse
Then say I exaggerate,
The rabbit got it worse

It’s hard to accept I’ve missed the point
But not as hard as getting service in this joint
I could order up love and peace
Send it to the Middle East
That won’t be as hard as you being good to me
